Secluded in the middle of a dense woods, the Duck Creek Cemetery was camouflaged by tall grass, encroaching undergrowth, and blackened and missing stones. It was barely recognizable as a cemetery. In 2007, this pioneer burial ground saw a rebirth, as pictured below, through the efforts of several dedicated people In the mid 20th century, the Duck Creek Cemetery fell upon hard times. Several local residents began using this hidden site as a dumping ground for their trash. Garbage, old fence, unwanted lumber, metal scraps, and debris were hauled in and pushed over the east side of the cemetery’s hill along with a dozen stones that the vandals evidently considered in their way. To dissuade this criminal activity, the township trustee erected a stout fence and a metal gate with padlocks. The gate was partially destroyed when the locals wanted access to their private dumping ground. This vandalism and illegal dumping were halted when authorities retrieved from the debris personal papers and receipts which included the names and address of the perpetrators.
