"This burial ground was established in 1846, not in connection with any religious society, or any house of worship, but simply because the people of the region needed a convenient place in which to bury their dead. It has been in constant use for the purposes of its creation and is so employed at the present day. We have no detailed account for publication in this work. The cemetery is located in the northeast part of the township in the vicinity of the residence of Martin Alger, northwest of the town of Urbana." Helms, HISTORY OF WABASH COUNTY, 1884 p. 418. The cemetery is located about 20 miles southeast of Laketon on the north side of county road 750N and 200W in Paw Paw township.
