Benton Cemetery
(Nassau County)
Not Located. WPA Cemetery Report placed this at Kings Ferry and Fernandina Roads at Kings Ferry
Kings Ferry, FL 32046

The Benton Cemetery is listed in the Veterans' Graves Registration Project of the WPA, containing the graves of two men, Malachia Anderson and Edward Benton. We have never been able to locate the cemetery, but the records of these two men are included in our database since we have proof of thier burials.

The original Veterans' Graves Registration location directions palce the cemetery in Section 19, Township 4N, Range 25E. "From the intersection of Kings Ferry and Fernandina Roads at Kings Ferry, go 4/10 mile on Kings Ferry road, the right on dirt road 2 and 2/10 miles to cemetery which lies on an open field"
