The following information was taken from a published record of Thomas D. Hamm , Compiler, and published in 1979, by the Henry County Historical Society, Inc., 606 South 14th Street, New Castle, Indiana 47362:

"Cemetery Records, Stony Creek Township, Henry County, Indiana - The Current Family Cemetery is located on the Robert Waldrath farm on the Messick Road, on section twenty-nine, about 3 miles west of Blountsville. It is not accessible from any road and can be reached only by crossing the Waldrath's land. This cemetery was founded as the burying ground for the family of James and Margaret (Johnson) Current, the progenitors of the Current family in Henry County. They emigrated to Stony Creek Township from West Virginia in 1834. James Current, Senior, was the first person buried here. He died in 1845. The last burial took place in 1911. The use of this cemetery seems to have fallen off as the use of Buck Creek German Baptist Cemetery, a half mile north increased. Many of the families buried here, such as the Himes's and the Cross's, have later generations buried at Buck Creek.

The Current Cemetery was recorded in June of 1973, so the editor can make no comment on its present [1979] condition. It was then overgrown with weeds, although most of the tombstones were still legible and standing."

According to the Find A Grave website description (25 Jun 2013), the Indiana Junior Historical Society undertook a major clean up of the cemetery in 1995, during which the burials were again recorded and several additional stones were found.
