Woodmen of the World Burials

Compiled and contributed by Jim Davenport [jimjanie@fone.net].

Jim Davenport travels the Western United States in search of tombstones belonging to members of the Woodmen of the World (WOW) and related organizations. He photographs the tombstones, records the inscriptions, and takes measurements. All of his work is recorded in several books he creates. All of the records he has compiled are presented here, along with some featured photographs.

State Index to Woodman of the World Burials

The burials linked from this index are those where the headstone, or an associated marker, has an indication that the person belonged to one of the organizations listed in the table below, or was a relative of the person who belonged to the organization. It is not meant to suggest that it is a complete listing of everyone buried in the cemetery, nor a listing of everyone from those organizations who is buried in the cemetery. For the most part the organizations began putting the identification on the tombstones in about 1880 and quit about 1935, though a few are occasionally seen with later death dates.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
