This is a black cemetery going back to the 1870s. It was affiliated with an African American settlement called Otter Creek, located in Van Buren Township, that is no longer in existence. No marked grave has been found in this burial ground.
"The Baptist Church was organized about 1873 in a small village called Otter Creek, north of Brazil. The Otter Creek Cemetery which is located north [off] Highway 59 may be affiliated with the church. In 1881, this Baptist church moved into the city of Brazil where it still operates."
