This cemetery is on the old homestead of Arthur C. Herring and wife Annie Walker Herring. Their three daughters are buried there, along with spouses. Daughter Lula Herring Murphy has all of her children buried there, as well. Arthur Herring's mother, Rachel, is interred in the cemetery.
Arthur and Annie raised his nephews and nieces, and her nephews and nieces. Several of them are interred here. Arthur's niece, Carrie, married Annie's brother, Joel. That family lived on the next farm, and they have their own cemetery there.
There are many lost graves of infants that are only know through oral tradition. Arthur and Annie lost a son in infancy. His grave is certainly there. Carrie Herring Walker lost four children in infancy. Mae Rith Walker Calloway lost at least one child. Those graves are in the Herring/Walker Cemetery as well -- unmarked and lost. Fred Walke's grave is unmarked and unadorned. It is to the right of Hugh Lester Walker.
One has to wonder how many other unmarked Herrings lie here. Rachel inherited this land from her father. This was the start of the Arthur Herring estate. Rachel's parents, David and Harriet, and her brothers, George and John David (great great grandfather of Michael Jordan) lived in close proximity in this area -- probably on land that their father split between them. It is likely that several of them are buried in this cemetery.
 Oral history? Found no deed to support David Herring owning land. However, in 1897 Rachel and her oldest son, Isaiah, were given land by Morris Collins, the elder brother of Arthur Herring's father. Isaiah deeded this to Arthur when he came of age, 1905. The Collins had inherited Rhynes Crossroads land from their ancestors, the Cowans.
