Old Black Jack Cemetery, as it's listed officially, was established some time in the 1850s and used until the 1870s or 1880s when nearby Black Jack Cemetery was established. It is reported that there were at least 20 marked graves at one point but in 1939 only two stones remained.

The cemetery was repeatedly plowed over after being abandoned and now no trace of this cemetery remains.
