|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Bunker Hill Cemetery is located approximately 3.5 miles north of Eaton Rapids, MI on M-99 1 miles east on Bunker Road in Eaton Rapids Township, Section 13, T2N, R3W, Eaton County. GPS Latitude is 42.553428; Longitude is -84.604297.
On July 19, 1873 (Liber 56, page 199) one acre of land was deeded from Harvey Marvin to “Bunker Hill Cemetery Association” to establish the cemetery. A record of the Bunker Hill Cemetery Association Burial Ground of Eaton Rapids and Aurelius Michigan began September 17, 1873. The cemetery was dually owned by Aurelius and Eaton Rapids Townships. Shortly after the Association turned the ownership, care and maintenance over to the two townships, since the cemetery was physically located in Eaton County, Aurelius Township deeded its share of ownership over to Eaton Rapids Township who now has exclusive ownership.
