|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Short Creek Cemetery was the family burial grounds for the Bright and other early Jasper County citizens. There may be over a dozen graves here as several tombstone bases and footstones are laying about. There is one tall monument marking the graves of 4 of the Bright family children. Another stone is that of a military veteran. Census data indicates that the Brights were in Jasper County before 1860 so this cemetery probably dates back that far. Brush is so dense as to make further searching impossible. The present land owners are planning on cleaning up this cemetery.
This cemetery is located by going west of Schifferdecker Ave. on West 7th Street to Central City road and going north a short distance, then turning west into a road where several newer houses are located. Cemetery is at end of road behind a house.
