The area with the old graves have very few headstones. And most that are there are hard to read. I will go back with some chalk and check to see if I can read them better. I will take another picture of the area so you can see there isn't much to look at.

You are very welcome, glad I could be of help. Thank you
Sincerest apologies for the transfer delay. Zelda forwarded the memorial completion memo, but I was remiss in the transfers.

Mrs. Marjorie's stone is in place and her memorial has been updated. :)

I looked for Marjorie in the same area, but did not see her headstone. I left the request open so the locations can be verified.

You are welcome. I have learned to always put a american flag on military headstones, it is the very least they deserve for their service to our country.

I would love to send you a copy of the record I have but I couldn't find an email for you. If you'd like to send me a message I will respond back with the data:
Rodney S. Belcher
Ypsilanti Historical Society
|Rodney Belcher||Mary Steiner|
The record that I am using to update the cemetery is a list compiled by Ypsilanti's first historian, Louis White, in the 1940's and transcribed in 1984 from his original hand writing. Now, I am trying to transfer that info, and fact check it as I do it, onto findagrave.com. So I can share a copy of the 1984 data with Mary Steiner's info on it. She is line 252. Mr. White walked the cemetery and took down all the info that was on the stones at that time and most of his data is correct but a lot of stones have been weather aged or otherwise damaged in the ensuing seventy years, so sometimes I have to play detective when I go to take photos. I also try to cross reference with Highland's office if I am looking for a particular grave for a request. Because as I have learned over the years, sometimes there is no marker even though there was someone there.
You also mentioned that Mary might have been moved from another cemetery. That is more than a possibility as Highland wasn't opened until 1863. There were five cemeteries serving the community before Highland was established: Summit, Prospect, Cross, Spencer & Catholic (which later became St. John Cemtery). Most graves from Summit and Prospect were relocated to Highland but some were moved to small family cemeteries or other outlaying grounds. Spencer and Cross being older cemeteries with advanced decomposition, hence nothing to transfer was left as is; except in Spencer's case, a single monument naming all interred there on it. Catholic Cemetery was moved from the campus of the Normal School (EMU) to its present location east of Highland.
Hope this helps and if you should need any other assistance please feel free to contact me, whether cemetery or other local history matters!
