Jacob Hively was the head of one of the seven families which came together from Ohio to Thorncreek township in 1836. The farm he bought was the southwest quarter of Section 9. The family burial site was made in the northwest corner of the farm. In 1960 three substantial gravestones were standing but there were several sunken graves noted without markers. At present all stones have been removed and the place is now a cultivated field.
