The Cemeteries of Leon County Florida, Rural, White Cemeteries:Tombstone Inscriptions & Epitaphs." Compiled and Edited by Joy Smith Paisley; Colonial Dames XVII Century, Dominie Everardus Bogardus Chapter; Tallahassee, FL, 1978, page 117:
'This well-maintained cemetery is two miles north of the town of Woodville on a road marked with its name. Township 2 S, Range 1 E, Section 9/10. The fence-enclosed plot, shaded by tall pines and hardwoods, was begun by the PAGE family which emigrated to Leon County from North Carolina in 1847, though PAGE family graves are no longer marked. ASA H. RHODES, a widower, brought his children to Leon County from Onslow County, N.C. before 1837 when he died here. The family moved to the Woodville area, acquiring the Page land, and they, their relatives and descendants have for generations been interred in this plot. Another early settler rests here, JOSEPHUS STARKWEATHER, who emigrated from Greene County, N.C. in 1847 and lies in an unmarked grave. His daughter, JULIA ANN STARKWEATHER, married BRICEY FONVILLE RHODES, I, son of ASA H. RHODES. Among interesting inscriptions is that of an officer of the Union Army of Occupation, BRIG.-GEN. WILLIAM T. COGSWELL, who married ESTELLE RHODES of Tallahassee. Genealogical information and record of unmarked graves were supplied by Dr. Francis A. Rhodes, Tallahassee. Recorded Oct. 18, 1975 by Mr. and Mrs. Clifton L. Paisley and Dr. Francis A. (Arlie) Rhodes; For: Bicentennial Cemetery Survey of the Colonial Dames XVII Century, Dominie Everardus Bogardus Chapter.'
