There are 12 unmarked graves in Apache Creek Cemetery, and 9 graves with no headstones or names marked with large fieldstones. One grave is marked with a square concrete stone with no legible name or date. Two graves are enclosed in wooden fences with no headstone, names or dates. They appear to be children’s graves, and are thought to be the first two people buried in this cemetery. The Apache Creek cemetery was established in 1900.
