Census 2020

The 2020 United States Census will take place on April 1, 2020.
The Census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for everyone in our community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.
A complete and accurate count is critical as the 2020 Census will affect our community funding, congressional representation, and so much more, Invitations to respond to the 2020 Census will be delivered between March 12-20. You will have three options for responding: online, by phone, or by email.
Participating in the census is required by law, even if you recently completed another survey from the Census Bureau. The U.S. Census Bureau is bound by Title 13 of the U.S. Code to keep your information confidential.
It is important to stay safe, and remember that the Census Bureau will never ask for your Social Security number, your bank account or credit card number, money or donations and they will not contact you on behalf of a political party.

BIG WOODS CEMETERY

BIG WOODS CEMETERY, located on Eola Road just south of Butterfield Rd, is maintained by Winfield Township.

This historic cemetery is the resting place of Israel Warner, who joined the Revolutionary War at age 9 (1777) as a messenger boy and scout until the end of the War in 1783.   His father was Seth Warner, co-founder of the famous Green Mountain Boys, with Ethan Allen.  Seth is famous for his role in winning the Battle of Bennington, and a statue of him is located next to the monument to the Battle of Bennington.  In 1777, Israel Warner carried an important message from his father, a Colonel, to General Stark galloping at top speed during the Battle of Bennington.

Israel is buried at Big Woods Cemetery, along with his daughter, her husband, and two of her children, both boys and who both died in the Civil War.

We also have seven other veterans from the Civil War, one from the Black Hawk Indian War, two from World War I, and four from World War II.

Plots are available for purchase.  The price of an adult grave ranges from $1,200 to $1,350; the price of a cremation ranges from $800 to $950, and the price for an infant’s grave ranges from $375 to $450.

For more information on Big Woods Cemetery, please call the office at 630-231-3591.
