Crooks Cemetery

Contributed by Teresa Fordyce

Take Rt. 68 South out of Lubeck to Lee Creek Road (across from the entrance to the Belleville Locks and Dam). The cemetery is on the left side of the road just after you turn onto Lee Creek Road. This is an abandoned cemetery that is no longer used or maintained. It is overgrown with weeds, and some of the stones are in very bad shape. This is a complete reading of all existing headstones from when I walked and transcribed this cemetery on Aug 10, 2003.
