"Woodham Family Cemetery is a private family burial grounds founded about 1848 or earlier by the Woodham family on Woodham land just north of the Choctawhatchee River in Dale County, Alabama. It is located about 300 yards west of the intersection of US Hwy. 231 and Newton-Echo Road (Dale County Road 18). This crossroads is just north of the Choctawhatchee River and includes a former truck stop, gas station, restaurant and other buildings. Located about 8 mi. south of Ozark and about 14 mi. nw of Dothan. Several neighboring families and friends have also been buried here. The cemetery was restored 1988-90. There are many unknown burials in this cemetery because the graves do not have tombstones. In the 1960's, there were numerous graves marked with elaborately carved wooden stakes or crosses. Unfortunately, all of these were destroyed during the restoration work. Many other graves were marked with rocks or bricks. Most of these were also removed and the locations of many of these graves has been lost. Thanks to J. B. Daughtry of Dothan, many of the "unmarked" graves now at least have a cement block with the name "unknown" marking the graves. This cemetery has been extensively researched by Robert Earl Woodham. He has added info from his family records to the listings below.

"The Woodham Family Cemetery was founded on one of several farm tracks owned by Edward H. Woodham Sr. The first burials there are believed to have been infants. The first confirmed adult burial was that of Richard Ira Woodham in 1848. Richard was a farmer. The next known adult burial was his brother, Frederick, in 1852. Both Edward H. Sr. and his wife Sarah Dowling died in 1865 and were buried here. For many decades, their graves were marked with a short brick wall surrounding the plot. This had deteriorated by the 1980's and was removed. A new granite tombstone was erected during the restoration work.

"The Woodham Family Cemetery Committee organized an annual Remembrance and Decoration Day at the cemetery and held the first one 28 Apr 1990. The first event attracted folk from as far away as Thibodaux, Louisiana and many communities in south Alabama and Georgia. The committee decided to make it an annual gathering. It is held usually on the fourth Saturday of April. A picnic is held at the cemetery in the picnic shed which was built during the restoration work."[1]
