This property was owned by Estelle Roberts Walker (1896-1976), widow of William Nathaniel Walker (1891-1951) as late as 1975. The William Nathaniel Walker Cemetery sits on this same property and, according to Mrs. Estelle R. Walker, the Peter Morrisette Family Plot was once located directly behind the other plots on this property and were marked with wooden markers. A square was left untended in this field for many years to mark the graveyard but all evidence of a graveyard is now gone. Believed to be buried in the Morrisette plot were Peter Morrisette, Martha Ballance Morrisette and possibly others. Peter & Martha were the parents of Tully B., Henry Eugene and Sally Ann Morrisette.
