Judi Woods visited the grave of her great-great-great-great-great-grandfather, William Cornett, a Revolutionary War veteran and the first person to be buried in the Audley Cornett Cemetery in Cornettsville. Cornett was buried in 1836. The small family cemetery in Perry County also contains graves of veterans of the War of 1812, the Civil War, both world wars and the Korean War. Almost all of them are descendants of Cornett. Woods and her brother, Ben Woods, live in a nearby cabin that Cornett built.
