Murder Victims. This is where the Woolfolk family of the "Woolfolk" murders are buried. Interred here is Richard F. Woolfolk (54), Mattie H. Woolfolk (41), and their six children, Richard Jr. (20), Pearl (17), Annie (10), Rosebud (7), Charlie (5), and baby Mattie (18 months). Richard's son, Tom Woolfolk, was accused and convicted of their murders. Their story was chronicled in the book "Shadow Chasers (Woolfolk Revisited)". The three adults and two older children lie in one row; the four smaller children lie in the second row. Each of the nine graves is topped by a rectangular brick tomb flush with the earth and beginning to show signs of a century of exposure to the elements.
