Ives Creek Cemetery

From Bellville, go north  on HWY 159 to Lisa May road.   Turn right and go to Ueckert road. 

 Turn left and go approximately .2 mile.   Cemetery is on the right side of the road. 

NOTE:  I only do transcribing and helping people with genealogical research.  I have nothing to do with the cemetery, so if you are looking for information on purchasing plots contact the caretaker or a local funeral home.


PLEASE CHECK the Cemetery Index page as the below table IS not be complete.

To look for obits go to Bellville Public Library site and click on Newspaper as there is a wealth of information for obituaries and other records.

Thanks to Carolyn Zaskoda
