Wood Cemetery
AKA Benny Wood Cemetery
Platte Township, Section 25 West
Andrew County, Missouri

Directions: From Whitesville on State Highway 48 east 1.8 miles to intersection with County Road 202. Cemetery is in a cultivated field with State Hwy 48 on the north and CR 202 on the west.

Notes: If crops are growing, it can't be seen from the road because all that now exists of it is a small patch that hasn't been plowed under, with no standing stones. Can be seen better from Highway 48 than from 202.

Credits: These pictures were taken by Betty Halvorsen, 2006. (c)THE Transcriptions (Taylor, Halvorsen, Eshelman).
