The South Walker (aka Wagner) Cemetery is located in the south central part of Section 33 Union township. To go to the cemetery go north on U.S. #61 from Skunk River bridge for about 1/2 mile, turn left or north on the first gravel road and travel about 3/4 mile. The cemetery is on your left. It is well mowed by Leslie Wagner, who also has some burial records. His house is southwest of the cemetery. He says his father bought the farm and he has since inherited it. Time and the elements have taken their toll. There are many unmarked graves, and many graves with old stones and funeral markers. This cemetery was copied and checked by the Des Moines County Genealogical Society, Burlington, Iowa, Sept 1975. Additions in parenthesis are by Sylvia Pfeiff.

Paul French has created a map of this cemetery, based on maps maintained by the Union Twp. Board of Trustees. This map is known to contain multiple problems. There are grave markers in the cemetery which are not on the map. There are grave markers recorded on the map which can no longer be found in the cemetery. The position of some gravemarkers on the map only vaguely represents their actual location in the cemetery. Until better maps are made, this is the best available.
