ABANDONED CEMETERY
(Hubbard Circle)
Larkin Township

Located in the center of the SW 1/4 of  section 12, Old Bismark Rd. used to run 
diagonally through this section and burials were made in the center by a group of pine 
trees. This was near Hubbard Circle (Hubbard Road & Ehlers Road). According to Mr. & 
Mrs. Paul Rinas no stones were ever placed there., they mounded the dirt on top of the 
grave. He said if you come in from Parish Road to N. on Forest Hill Drive to the end, 
into the woods aways, there is a pond a farmer dug out years ago for his cows. The 
cemetery is on the NW corner of the pond. Mr. Rinas said at one time they had a wooden 
fence around it, but it has fallen over now. The following information was gone over 
with him and some others in the area, and they thought those names sounded right for 
the dates. This was on October 31, 1998 by Margaret Wegner and Cheryl Speaker
