Peter Current Cemetery

Stony Creek Township
Est. 1830s

   This cemetery, located in section #29 in Stony Creek Township, Henry County, IN on the Walradth farm on the Buck Creek Pike. It was set-aside as a burial ground by James Current who settled here in the 1830s. It has received very little care in the last few years and is completely overgrown with native vegetation and many stones are down due to weathering and the ages of father time.
   At one time a Boy Scout group took care of the grounds and kept the weeds mowed, but lately it has been completely forgotten and left to the elements.
   This list was compiled in 1995 when the Indiana Junior Historical Society undertook a major cleanup of the cemetery, cutting back the trees, brush and weeds. They then recorded all of the burials in the cemetery, finding several stones that were missed in the previous recordings done in the 1973 by Thomas Hamm.
   The Current cemetery is under a Conservation Management Agreement between the Central Indiana Land Trust Inc. (CILTI) and Stoney Creek Township. Under this agreement, CILTI manages the native prairie habitat on the properties for preservation purposes. These small sites are some of the few remnants of native prairie vegetation that existed prior to European settlement in portions of east-central Indiana. Prairie species present include big blue stem, little blue stem, New Jersey tea, black-eyed Susan, beebalm, Indian grass, pale-spiked lobelia, showy tick trefoil, rose pink, flowering spurge, and lance-leaved coreopsis.
