Woodlawn Cemetery

Dement Township

Woodlawn or Brodies Grove is the only cemetery in this township. It was established in the 1840's. It is on the west side of Woodlawn Road just a little north of the village of Creston in Section 12. The Brodies, whose child was the first burial, were alleged to have been connected with prairie bandits, and left the area when the regulators were formed to break up the gang.
