Wood Cemetery is located off Farmview Road outside Rio Grande, Ohio (Raccoon Township, Gallia County). It is located behind the Welsh Church model on the Bob Evans farm.

Wood Cemetery is a very old cemetery that is no longer in use. The Bob Evans farm takes very good care of it, it's in fabulous condition for such an old cemetery.

Adam Rickabaugh, the founder of the former village of Adamsville and a Revolutionary War veteran, is buried at Wood Cemetery. In 1964 the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) held a ceremony at the cemetery to honor him.

A big thanks to my friend Mark for spotting this cemetery while we were driving down Farmview Road. I was too busy concentrating on the road since I had no idea where we were, and thankfully Mark is very familiar with the area so he was able to tell me to stop in time to visit this interesting old cemetery!
