This cemetery, originally on private property, is now township owned. It is not an active burial ground today. Located in Section 23, on Spring Creek Road, in the west part of the section near the state line.

At the time of this reading the cemetery was very well kept, some of the broken stones were carefully wired to pieces of fence post for support; 65 grave markers, some inscribed in German.
