McCormick Cemetery was also known as Dean or Hughes Cemetery. It is located in Hamilton Township near County Roads 600 North and 300 East.
There is NO public road to this cemetery. If you plan on visiting this cemetery you will need to hike back through a field and into the woods.
Travel State Road 28 west to County Road 300 East. Turn and go north on 300 East about 300 yards. On the West side of the road between two fields there is a fence line. Follow the path beside the fence back to the patch of woods. McCormick cemetery is located at the back of the woods on high ground. According to DAR records in 1961 five tombstones were located, in 2005 only a pile of broken stones were found.
The cemetery is overgrown and the tombstones are broken and lying on the ground.
There is a sign located at the road before the path back to the cemetery stating it is a Federal Wildlife Sanctuary and a "No Trespassing"sign.
