Hawkeye Cemetery is located in Huron Township, section 11.
The first cemetery in the township, it is a three-acre plot high on the bluff overlooking the bottom land. The land for the cemetery was given by the Swank family, presumably, when their daughter America died at the age of 2 yrs., in 1837. This grave is said by the D.A.R. of Burlington to be the oldest grave in the County. A section of this cemetery was purchased by the Apostolic Church for their burial grounds years ago. Hawkeye has 5 Civil War soldiers buried there. James Swank, Wm. F. Swank, T. M. Darnold, W. M. Wilson, and J. H. McKee. Signs, which were the first ones ever placed there, were made and erected at Hawkeye and Dolbee in the late 1960s.
