Old Mission Indian Cemetery
Also known as: Father Marquette Cemetery
Hessel
Mackinac County
Michigan  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
261 S ISLAND VIEW ROAD
HESSEL, MI 49745
(906) 647-3400

Located in Hessel, Mackinac Co., Michigan, the Old Mission Indian Cemetery is close to Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church. It is one of two historical Native American burial grounds in Michigan maintained and regulated by the Native American Society for Historical Preservation.

Believed to date back to the early 1700's, the Cemetery was previously called the Father Marquette Indian Cemetery. In 2003 the name was changed back to its deeded name of Old Mission.

The cemetery is filled with simple white crosses without names. Each of these marks a grave of an unknown Native American. Most are believed to be Ojibwa Native Americans from the Sault tribe.
