Native American Member who enjoys research.|
We are more than happy to transfer ownership of any entries created if they are not realted to our famalies already.
Our interest our found in Walker & Odeiman family names and, The 1st Michigan Sharpshooters, Company K, of the Civil War, 1861-1865. A Native American regiment of Michigan who saw battle in The Battle Of The Wilderness, Spotsylvania and the Siege Of Petersburg.
A fire in Emmet County Michigan in Cross Village at Holy Cross Rectory burned all vital records to local cemeteries on Febuary 23, 1970
To add to the confusion in researching our Odeimin ancstors, when a death certificate reads "Cross Village," as a place of burial, this could mean:
1) Old Indian at 6100 N Wadsworth Street in Cross Village. Today this is considered the Father Weikamp Cemetery and enclosed by a cyclone fence.
2) Holy Cross Parish Cemetery located just outside Cross Village on W. Levering Road.
3) Old Indian Cemetery AKA, Anamiewatigoing located on Oak Drive
The Native American Cemetery at 6100 N. Wadsworth Street was condemed by the board of health in 1948.
This small plot of land contains hundreds of Indian burials. Our ancestors are in fact, still there but the markers have been removed after the cemetery became full. It is still consecrated ground.
It is very likely that our Odeimin relatves are in the the old Indian cemetery, now known as Fr. Wykeimp Cemetery, If our relatives died before condemnation in 1948.
Feel free to copy,use and share any image which we have published on any memorial. History belong to the people, not just any one individual.

I noted duplicates of numbers of burials between Lakeview Cemetery and Holy Childhood of Jesus Cemetery. As you know, they are adjacent to one another. The majority of Holy Childhood entries appear to have been entered by the same FindAGrave member in 2004 and done from a burial register of the local Catholic church. This is the same parish that operated and maintained the nearby Holy Childhood Indian School. From the death certificates, it appears the two cemeteries may have been identified as Lakeview at one time or the local mortuaries didn't distinguish between Catholic and non-Catholic burial locations. The Lakeview Cemetery entries are not as uniform and a cross-sampling of burials shows different FindAGrave members under different dates (2005 to 2015 for those I looked at, now, even though the deaths were no later than 1961). The local historical group may be able to provide an answer.

Thanks for looking. I have no other ideas. I found the name on Find a Grave and her relatives said she was buried here. Glad to see another CW Buff out there.

His Cert of Death is available on SeekingMichigan, but cannot be added to his FindAGrave page. There are two photos of the cemetery sign. One could be removed so the certificate (Leon Otashquabona) could be shared. -- Celeste

My Bad! You may remove Harrison Castle from your virtual cemetery as he served with Berdan's 1st United States Sharpshooters Co. K and NOT with the 1st Michigan sharpshooters. sorry for the confusion. Thanks. Dan

I would like to add to your virtual cemetery my great grand uncle's memorial to this cemetery. The memorial number is 80696455. Thank you. Dan Castle
|Sandy Vandertol||RE: Samuel Geer|
Thank you for adding the info to his page. I had a page for his little grandson in St. Andrew's cemetery in Grand Rapids and wanted to find the parents. One thing led to another and I found Samuel's wife and son living out in Oregon. It seems to be more humanizing when someone dies alone as Samuel did to give him family and a story.
|Joyce McClain||Lee Otto|
Lee Otto and Delia Bennett were divorced. Lee's death record said he was buried in the Northport Cemetery, Leelanau Co...but there isn't a record of his burial there. Delia married Walter Chippewa in 1921 Isabella Co...she died Feb 1940 in Isabella Co. There isn't a record of her burial.
Thank you so much for the information on Greensky Hill Cemetery. I will put my Andrews in that cemetery. I wish they would put the old names of the cemeteries on with the new name it would help so much. I do has much research has I can to put these people were they belong. I just don't what them forgotten. Thank you so much fore the information if I run a cross another Susan Lake Cemetery I will know were to put them. Thank you wanda
