South Manitou Island
Leelanau County
Michigan  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
The cemetery is located [within the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore Park] on South Manitou Island near the shore of the bay. Directions to hike there are: From the village dock area go to the Bay Campground and follow the path past the camp site area - perhaps a 20 minute walk. At the 4x4 marker with pickets attached, turn left and follow the path. Proceed west approximately 60 yards to the graves.

In a heavily wooded area are four picket fence grave sites and two tombstones. There are probably other, but unmarked, graves in the area. You may follow winding path to the north, at least a five minute walk which passes the old Burdick store in ruins and then ends where it meets the east-west Chicago Road trail.
