Woodard Cemetery
Posted by: Hazel Clack (ID *****2746) Date: April 22, 2009 at 20:04:34

I was in Laurens Co, Ga several months ago and located the Woodard Cemetery. The cemetery sits on the edge of the road and looks as if it may be quite a large cemetery but totally inaccessable. I did manage to cut my way through a lot of thorny vines to two of the headstones...and then had to cut them away from the headstones.
Both are gravesites of Civil War soldiers with CSA markers.

1..Amos L Rowland Co.B 52 Ga Inf
2..J Wells Woodard Co.B 4 Ga Cavalry

This cemetery is in deplorable condition. Does anyone know if there is an organization in Laurens Co, Ga that is interested in the upkeep of the gravesites of our Civil War veterans? The headstones are also in need of replacement as weather and cemetery conditions have taken such a toll that they are almost unreadable.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Hazel
