The Procession That Never Moves

The Wooldridge Monuments
Maplewood Cemetery, Mayfield, Graves County

Henry Wooldridge had these statues made and positioned around his grave in Maplewood Cemetery.  Enshrined here are Henry (2 statues), his mother, four brothers, three sisters, two nieces, his horse, his two favorite hunting dogs, a deer, and a fox.  Only Henry Wooldridge is actually buried here.
