Woodlawn Cemetery (Union Cemetery Association)
Woodlawn Cemetery began in 1820 as a Presbyterian Burying Ground.
The existing grave markers in Woodlawn Cemetery read like a Who’s Who in Sandy Creek/Lacona history showcasing the contributions of many people who came before us.
This cemetery contains over 5,000 known burials and many unmarked graves, especially in the older sections. Woodlawn Cemetery and Boylston-Sandy Creek-Wesleyan Cemetery are the two active cemeteries within the town’s perimeter. We have 6 abandoned cemeteries which we have documented in books and photographs in an effort to preserve what we can.
Section A is presented in a format that is intended to be helpful to researchers. This section includes a potter’s field and many “spaces” that cannot be documented. Only “old” sections will appear on this site.
It is impractical to list every burial as space is limited but information and gravestone photographs can be sent to interested researchers.
