Owen County Cemeteries

- Works  Cemetery -

The (so called) Works cemetery is a family burial plot in a heavily wooded thicket on the property of the late Wilford Smith. It is very difficult to enter because of briars and undergrowth. If there are any members of the Works family buried here, there are no markers bearing that name. Most of the stones are natural rocks, used to indicate a grave without inscription. Only two tombstones, with inscription, remain.
