James and Christina Crum, husband and wife, deeded land for this burial ground on Nov. 8, 1862. The deed is found recorded in Deed Record Book TT "to be forever held and used as a Public Burial Place for the use of the inhabitants in the neighborhood of the said premises and for no other use whatever." The fenced cemetery is adjacent to and east of a north-south road, a few yards south of an east-west road that straddles the Cass County and Morgan County line. Union Church was formerly located on the Cass County (north) side of the road, very near the cemetery. The location is about 3 miles northwest of the tiny village of Arcadia. The cemetery was subjected to vandalism in 1979. In addition to tombstone readings made by Mrs. Florence Hutchison and Robert W. Dalton, some burials are gleaned from several other sources and the burials are not always marked.

When I visited this cemetery in the summer of 2004, the cemetery was nicely mowed and showed signs of continuous caretaking. Many of the stones are broken and several stones and spires are down. Earl and I revisited this cemetery in May 2008 and took the remaining photographs shown here. If a name appears in red, click on the name to bring up a photo of that individual's cemetery marker.
