This cemetery, originally known as "Samuel Woods, II, Graveyard", is thought to contain approximately 70 graves. Of the graves that have dates, the earliest date of death is 1823 and the latest is 1943; approximately half of the graves do not have dates on their markers. The cemetery has suffered serious damage from the elements and from vandals.
Ann Kennedy Patton, contributor #48069415, provided the following information about the cemetery:
Samuel Woods married Elizabeth Patton, sister of William Patton. In 1793 brothers-in-law Samuel and William received a joint land grant of 580 acres in Franklin County, Georgia, for service in the Revolutionary War. In 1813, William sold his half-interest in the land (then situated in Jackson County) to Samuel. The land became part of Hall County when Hall was created in 1820. Samuel Woods willed the land to his son Robert; Robert sold it to Jacob Eberhart in 1823.
