|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The McCrackenville Cemetery, also known as the McCracken Grounds, is described in old records variously as "near to the Driving Park Bridge on the West side of the River" and "close to the intersection of Driving Park and Lake Avenue". Dr. McCracken owned the land around the present day intersection and the family farm was located on the South West corner of Driving Park and Lake Avenue so it seems safe to presume this was also the location of the cemetery. Three of the five known burials are known to have been removed to another site in 1846, and shortly afterward the land was developed and the old cemetery built over. The location of the other two burials remains unknown.
