Woolsey Cemetery

Township 13, Range 9, Section 36





   

This abandoned cemetery is about three miles southwest of Centerville. It is on a hill on the west side of a seldom used road. The tombstone readings listed here are used by the courtesy of Mrs. Guy W. (Myra) Martin and Reuben Bates Jr., who visited the cemetery for the purpose of recording the tombstone inscriptions.

When Earl & I visited this cemetery on October 19, 2005, we were only able to locate three stones and three footstones. The tall grass and brush may have hidden others.
