This cemetery is located on Wayton Mountain in Section 19, Township
14North, Range 21West in back of the Oscar Shelton Place.
The name of this cemetery was probably named for the BENEGAR Family
who lived in this area in Lincoln Township and the unidentified
graves in this cemetery may contain Benegar family members.
However, there are Benegar family members buried in Wayton Cemetery
in Newton County in Lincoln Township. Joseph Benegar's second wife
CASSIE HENDERSON BENEGAR may possibly be one of the persons buried
here in an unmarked grave in this cemetery. She is not listed in
the Wayton Cemetery burials. She was alive in 1910.
SNOW and HENDERSON families were also living in Lincoln Township
in this same area.
There are several unidentified graves here.
