FRANK ABEL CEMETERY...The Abel Cemetery is located on a stretch of upland about seven miles east of Woodland. Frank Abel, a pioneer settler in the Valley, donated the original tract which consisted of one acre of land. The oldest burial according to headstones was Mary McAferty who died in 1873 There are currently about 450 burials in the original cemetery, although some of the graves are unmarked, most have headstones. However, in 1957 another acre was purchased adjoining the original tract. The old portion of this cemetery is nearly filled with graves of not only local residents, but of many from more distant points.
