History: It is believed the Warrick Cemetery was started the winter of 1851. The W.P.A. cemetery records show a burial, “Louthen, --- (Hatfield).” An account of an early settler, Thomas J. Edwards, records first burial, Mrs. H.J. Louthan, the winter of 1851. An abstract record shows Robert Warrick bought this tract with other land from the government in 1854. After his death the land passed through various heirs down to Lottie Warrick, wife of Loyd. On November 2, 1962 Lottie deeded this cemetery tract to the trustees of the township. Descendants carefully cleared the cemetery and it was fenced. Two huge oak trees are on each side of the entrance gate. A small hand gate is south of that.
