Baby is probably the grave of an infant born to James Aaron and Levina "Vine" (England) Walls (see entries for Walls, James A. and Walls, Levina). Birth and death dates for this individual are unknown (Russel 2012).
Grave Marker: The grave marker for Baby Walls is a flat concrete monument about 18 x 10 x 2 inches in size. "BABY" is inscribed on the upward facing side of the marker. This marker is almost certainly homemade, given the widespread domestic use of cement technology by ca. 1900 and the non-uniform nature of the inscribed letters in "BABY." The uniform size and composition of the concrete markers for Charles, Joe, Bob, Baby, and Presley Walls may indicate that they were made and set at the same time, after all five of these individuals had died.
