Hacker Morrison Cemetery Project
The Morrison Cemetery (also known as Old Hacker
) was probably established in 1824.
We say this because John Hacker was the first to be buried in this cemetery. The cemetery was part of John Hacker's property. Today, it is still located on a lovely hill in the Hacker's Creek area and is accessible by vehicle. It is a significant historical location because many buried there are the pioneer settlers and related families of the Hacker Creek settlement. The last recorded burial was Gertrude Bonnett in 1929.
At this point in time, the cemetery needs new fencing installed, repairs made to the grounds, and tombstomes restored. We are asking for donations to help with this project. All donations are appreciated and tax exempt. We encourage you to participate in this worthwhile project especially if your family roots tie into these Hacker's Creek Pioneer Settlers who are buried in the Cemetery: Allman, Batten, Bonnett, Boram, Cozad, Hacker, Hersman, Hinzman, Lawson, Maxon, Morrison, Post, Smith, Starcher, Swisher, and Waggoner.
