The Highbaugh Cemetery is located in a pasture field approximately
one-tenth of a mile northwest of Mount Pisgah Baptist Church. It
is also approximately one-tenth of a mile west of the Wabash Road
and a few hundred yards north of Bacon Creek Road (Highway 728).
The cemetery is located on a hill and at one time contained a number
of cedar trees that visibly marked its location from Bacon Creek
When accessing the cemetery, I parked at the late Robert “Bob”
Cates homestead. The lane to the Cates homestead is off Wabash
Road and a just a few yards north of the Bacon Creek Bridge. I
then walked westward through the pasture field to the cemetery.
There were at least three (3) rock markers found with no inscription.
Two were found in the vicinity of the graves of George and Hariet
Highbaugh, and another was found near the grave of Carlton Cruse.
I transcribed the cemetery information from the gravestones in
January 1995. At that time the larger cedar trees had recently
been cut from the cemetery. Unfortunately sawbriars and a variety
of tree saplings were already beginning to supplant the cedar
trees that had been removed.
