From a new listing map in the works at JCHS in Murphysboro, the following for Camp Creek Cemetery: 1.  10 rows in and in order L-R: two empty spaces, Vertis Rolens Butcher, B.F. Butcher, empty space, Ollie Butcher, Elizabeth Butcher Spinner, Sarah Butcher, George Butcher and George Butcher Co. H 27th IL Inf (possibly two markers as one), John Butcher, empty space Huldah Butcher, at least three and possibly 4 more non-marked. 2. Three rows in from back on left side alone-Benjamin Butcher many empty spaces all around 3.  Eight rows up from front right side to right of Jatho Thomas Butcher, Ida Butcher, Leonard Butcher, Luther Butcher, unmarked grave. 4.  Eight rows up from front between Grizzel and Jatho to right-middle three empty, William Butcher, Ellen Butcher, four empty 5.  There are many empty spots so there are many stones down throughout this cemetery. The lady says it is full. (C)  Creekpaum is a family name that was originally Krischbaum (Kirschbaum) or a close spelling variation. There were a few of this family in Kentucky around 1800. 1.  John H. Creekpaum married Nancy Butcher, daughter of Gasper Butcher. She was born in 1810 in Kentucky. Creekpaum Cemetery  is fairly sparse in number of graves. There is a large coal mine next to it and you can see the dust of the earth movers. It is an isolated area. There used to be a church there but when it burned down they kept the steps to it as a memorial. I'm not sure if the steps are still there. 2.  There are several Butchers there including Alsy wife of Samuel, son of Gasper.  Submitted by Andrew Butcher.
