______________________________ _______ 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.
