Woods Cemetery (black)



Surveyed by Orlan Irons, Joyce & Buster Carroll, 3 Apr 1991

To reach this cemetery from Florence, turn off AL 20 (Savannah Highway) onto Lauderdale 14 (Waterloo Road); go 10.3 miles and turn left on Lauderdale 6; go 3.6 miles to the cemetery. The cemetery is on the right side of the road, and you will have to walk north 350 yards to reach it. It is at the edge of a field, just inside of a small wooded area. This cemetery is shown on some older maps, but no name is given, and an earlier listing had it as an "Unknown Cemetery", so Woods may not be the correct name, but no other name has been found. The people buried in this cemetery are black. The legal description is SW4, NE4, Sec 2, T3S, R13W.
