**Hint: Use ctrl + f in Firefox to find the name you are looking for** Woods Cemetery Pike Township, Warren County, Indiana This cemetery is located south of West Lebanon. Take “Old 63” south to Hanging Rock Church Camp. The entrance to the camp is on the right; make a left turn from 63 onto a gravel road—actually appears to be a lane. The cemetery is one-half mile on the left. It can be seen from 63. At first appearance, ther seem to be only a few stones, but many are flat and some are nearly covered with grass. There are also two stacks of broken stones. The area is mowed and some overgrown shrubbery has been cut away. Some very nice old sandstones dating 1839 are still standing. Family groups have been listed together. It is really not possible to read in rows. Crawford, John N.
