This information is copied from previous records, as the cemetery was not located in 1994. We are very grateful for the people who recorded this information and feel it is important to include it as a part of the Cedar Creek Township.
This is a very small family cemetery completely hidden from view by mulberry trees and farming area. Miss Ethel Vinnedge of Creston, Indiana, also made the survey and our findings were different from those of Mrs. Joseph E. Brown and Mrs. W.A. McBride. Their readings are in parenthesis. Survey was made on July 22, 1956. Mr. Dixon Barr, S.A.R. of Crown Point, Indiana, was also a member of the party which located the site.
The cemetery is about a half mile south of Creston in Cedar Creek Township on the old McCarty farm, now the property of Richard Hamman. It can be reached by going south on County Road E. (the Cedar Lake-Lowell Road), turning west at the sign which designated Lake Dale-Carlia, and going about a quarter of a mile. The cemetery is on the south side of the road; there is a narrow worn lane which leads around the area."
