The town disappeared during the 1930s. Another name closely associated with it and Paden Twp was Creek Twp #2 that appears in the 1930 US Federal Census and is also currently non-existent. They may have been the same Township under different names. All that remains is a deeply rutted red-clay road leading to Micawber Cemetery (now on-line and fully renovated) and newer farm houses that are currently occupied. "Micorber" as it was then referred to had probably disappeared due to poor farmland which did not support the homesteaders. Some early residents included the Whetstones. Smalleys, Smiths, Jeffers, Thorsons and Mayfields, several of which are buried in the Micawber Cemetery. Submitted by: Jack Whetstone
