Following is my listing of all graves in the Woods-Cameron Cemetery mentioned above, located in Sumter County. (Census taken April 10, 2007)
This cemetery is located about 5 miles south of York on Highway 17 at the intersection of Highway 80, at what is known as Scratch Hill. Going south from York, turn left onto the dirt road immediately before the turn-off for Highway 80. The cemetery sits immediately on the right on top of the little hill in the trees, surrounded by a chain link fence. There is no sign to identify the cemetery. It was on the old Preston and Lethye Woods Cameron family home place and contains graves of Cameron and Woods family members. The graves all face the direction of the gate.
