Waldrep Cemetery
Early Settlers Of Woods Creek
Submitted by Mary McNiel Payne
Off Hwy. 190 East, take a left onto Midway Center Rd. There is also a sign that
says it is Jas Turner Cemetery Rd. Go 2 miles, take a right at the fork with sign
that says Waldrep Cemetery. Make the next left onto Leon Dickens Rd.
Go 1 3/10 mile, take a left onto Patsy Dickens Rd. At the top of the hill is the
cemetery, at the edge of the woods, hunting leases adjoin the property. It has a
large wood sign at the entrance that says Waldrep Cemetery, Early Settlers of
Woods Creek. It is fenced with a locked gate. Per my phone conversation with
Mrs. Collis Waldrep, these are the names of graves that are known to be buried there.
A few have headstones, most are marked by a single brick, or metal marker that is
unreadable, or piece of pvc pipe.
