Woodbourne Cemetery

In 1823, Richard Wheatley elected to bury his son, Richard, in Lot 16 of the industrial town of Woodbourne, thereby establishing a town burial ground. Others were buried there before the Christian church was built on Lot 11 in 1846. This church then associated itself with the cemetery. With the decline of the town, the church was abandoned and torn down in 1939. The last interment in the cemetery was in 1891. There are nine markers for 15 known burials, but many more are said to be buried here. Residents still whisper that a neighbor removed a number of flat stones some years ago to make a patio. The cemetery is now maintained by Washington Township.
