Havens Cemetery: Notes

Havens cemetery

This is the family plot of Thomas Havens and stands on land that once belonged to him. The intersection is the original Havens Corners.

The plot is on private property, at the edge of the woods 50 yards up near the top of the hill. It is unmaintained but not overgrown.

The Benton Methodist Church once stood at the corners, but this plot was not associated with it. Sometimes it is called the Havens Corners Cemetery, or after a previous owner of the land, Frank Collins.
