This is an old cemetery located on our property above our house. We built on my old family home place in 1985. It is really pretty. It has a chain link fence around it and a large section that can be removed when needed to bury someone.
The cemetery is still active, however it is a private family cemetery. My is the caretaker husband, a job he started in 1964 because my uncle and aunt were too old to do it anymore.
I have transcribed from the records of Jerry and Mary G. Cooper Trustee's and family of the Goodwin/Wood Cemetery. It was established by John Edward and Sarah Ellen Goodwin Wood after the death of William Rosswell Wood their child in 1891.- Sandy Cooper
