Leakey/Hubbell Burial Ground

Liberty Township - 1844

   This old abandoned cemetery was started in 1844 when Samuel Hubbell's grandfather John Hubbell, who was a veteran of the Revolutionary War, died and was buried on the family farm. His wife Mary is buried here with him. Joseph Leakey who first came to Henry County in 1823, purchasing land just east of the cemetery, later purchased the land. He was to continue using the burial ground for his family burials. Over the years it became a neighborhood burial ground for the other area families.
   The cemetery has not been very well maintained over the years. There are many stones down due to cattle having the run of the place a few years back. There were several re-interments brought here from the old Devon (Long) Cemetery just north of here, when that cemetery was plowed over in the 1930s.
   There are several military veterans buried here; John Hubbell, Revolutionary war, John Van Buskirk, War of 1812 and some Civil War veterans.
   In some references the cemetery is referred to as Wise Hart, Wisehart/Leaky but in reality it is really the Hubbell burial ground.
