Cemetery History

Dicks Creek Cemetery, one of the oldest surviving cemeteries in Warren County, is the final resting place for many of the original settlers in the Blue Ball area. It was established in 1810 when Joseph Parks and his son, Robert, donated a parcel of ground on Union Road for a church and an acre of ground adjacent to it for a cemetery. The first known burial is for John Bigger who died 5 Dec 1809.

From various sources , we know of 133 burials in the cemetery. Gravestones for 88 of them have been located and photographed. This last known burial in the cemetery is said to be that of Bruce Mell in the 1920s.

The cemetery is the final resting place for Seven Revolutionary War veterans (one of the highest concentrations in Warren County) Joseph Parks, Robert Boal, Joseph Green, Andrew Karr, James Wilson, John McMeen and John Bryant. It is also the final resting place for Civil War soldiers John Logan and Theophilus L. Todd. . Gravestones remain for all of these patriots except the gravestone for Joseph Parks.
