Marker Text This burial ground was in use for decades before Tom J. Goodson (1858-1913) and wife, Winnie May (1867-1911), deeded it to the Baptist church on May 3, 1909. Land gifts in 1945 by their son, Lester (1898-1978), and by C.H. Daniel, a local land and sawmill owner who donated land again in 1967, have allowed for expansion. The earliest marked graves belong to brothers, James A. (1859-1878) and William H. (1861-1878) Proctor; how they died just days apart is now forgotten. Honored here are veterans of the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korea and Vietnam. This site remains a chronicle of the generations who are the heritage of the Magnolia area.
