Roberts Cemetery





   


This well maintained cemetery is used for current burials. It is located about one and one-half miles south of Woodson and is in Section 33. It is adjacent to a good road. Turn south onto Rte 967 at the intersection of Main Street in Woodson and IL Rte. 967. Drive for approximately 1.5 miles. After you round a curve in the highway, you can see the cemetery on the left. Turn east (left) on Midway Rd. which is the first road you see, drive across the railroad and the cemetery is on your left. It is well maintained with nearly all of the stones upright.

Note: At times this cemetery was also known and referred to as Henry Cemetery, leading to confusion as to which cemetery (Roberts or Henry) an individual was buried in - very confusing when there isn't a headstone in either cemetery for that individual).
