Cemetery

The new Woods Cemetery Assocation will meet at 5 p.m. Feb. 13 at 1428 W. Walnut in Rogers. The group's goal is to bring together descendants and friends of those buried in the Woods Cemetery for the purpose of keeping the history of those pioneer settlers of Benton County alive, genealogy and preservation and maintenance of the cemetery. There are 16 known families buried in the Woods Cemetery: Black, Braithwaite, Campbell, Cavness, Deason, Dickson, Ellis, Faucett, Kelton, Landers, Maxwell, Pierce, Sprague, Stroud, Weeks and Woods.

Because many of the families buried in Woods Cemetery have families buried elsewhere, information on Ricketts, Robbins, Old Dickson and Mt. Eden/Maxwell cemeteries will be made available as needed. Quarterly newsletters will highlight the history of the families buried here, with photos and stories, which the association will get from members.
