Adrian's First Cemeterywas located at the corner of Main and Michigan Ave. After Oakwood Cemetery was established, the city workers began to remove the bodies from the old cemetery to Oakwood. The bodies were removed and reburied a few at a time, as time was available. When the work was completed three bodies remained, either because they could not be located, or permission could not be obtained for their removal. (Both stories may be true.) This hand-drawn map was provided to Oakwood Cemetery, which shows the location.
Note: handwritten on one side of this map is: "Stones placed underground and over graves by B. Hopkins when other bodies were removed."
See the LCFR web site for pricing and availability of these and future volumes.
Michigan USGenWeb Tombstone Project is an attempt to put tombstone inscriptions and photos online. Since this is an ongoing project, please check periodically to see if the cemetery you are interested in has been listed.
