Halsey Hougham Cemetery is located in Section 24 Waynesville Township of DeWitt County.  This cemetery was deeded to DeWitt County in 1879 and DeWitt County deeded it to Waynesville Township in 1959.  This cemetery has never been taken care of and today the only reason it is even mowed is due to the thoughtfulness of Paul D. Spencer who mows it.  The property owners around this cemetery refuse admittance to cemetery crews and special permission must be gained to get to it.  I had to cross an acre of planted soy beans to reach it and did so without permission as one of my ancestors is buried here.
