    This cemetery, located along the historic lower Bonham Road on the site of the Old Rock Rest Church and School, was first used during the 1870s. The two and one-half acre plot was deeded to cemetery trustees George A. Wilson, William W. Wallace, and T.C. Boone in 1882. Woodlawn Cemetery is the burial place for many Collin county pioneers. Jimmie Geigas, the first soldier from McKinney killed in World War I, also is buried here. With most of the graves dating before 1900, Woodlawn remains a significant example of a pioneer cemetery. (1984) Incise on back: Given in memory of Mary Klapper Benton, daughter of Philip and Mary Klapper, by her great nieces Lois Head and Birdie Moorhead.
