Benson Cemetery Listing

AKA Rarick Cemetery




This cemetery listing was compiled from several sources. Some of the data came from family information used in previous listings.  Some came from the Works Project Administration (WPA) list that ended in the 1930s.  And some info came from emails, notes, lists, and undocumented sources.  As each list is typed and retyped, the information can change because each person interprets the numbers or names differently or, the data is mistyped.  Use these cemetery sources as a tool to discover.  As I combined the listings if there was a conflict in names, dates or comments I indicated the differences in red.

Abbreviations used:
d/o – daughter of  
ae – age     
y – year or years
s/o - son of  
G.A.R. – Grand Army of the Republic (Civil War) 
m – month or months
w/o – wife of
d – day or days
h/o – husband of

31 Jul 2017:  I had occasion to visit and photograph this cemetery on 30 Jul 2017.  I will highlight any corrections I make.  I am also inserting a link to the headstone photo on the GPP~Karen
