Historian Scott Coleman and U.S. Forest Service archaeologist Jim Bates check a site inventory record of the Woods cemetery site completed by the Forestry Service.

The Confederate solider may be buried in a mass grave somewhere else, but a marker dedicated to him is home in the family cemetery in Woods Ferry once more. Capt. Johnson M. Woods, Co. F., 23rd S.C. Infantry, C.S.A., has come home.

The story on how the marker dedicated to Capt. Woods was returned to its rightful place is a strange and marvelous one. It all begins with a furtive visit to the Chester County Historical Society Museum by a man who didn’t want to get into any trouble.
