Woodard Mountain was the homestead of my great-great grandfather, Zachariah Woodard (Woodward). The graveyard has some of his children and grand children that died at an early age or birth. One was Nova Etta. I haven't been there in years, and was a teenager the last time I went, around 1984. In 1976, I was a child, but the cemetary was still in halfway decent shape. When we went back in the 80s, it was in shambles, from loggers tearing the place up. I believe Green Woodard's grave is there as well, and possibly a young boy named Lafayette. If I recall correctly, my great-grandmother Martha Catherine (Mattie) Woodard Doherty has a child buried there as well named Sally Elizabeth.
