When I was in Lapeer County in October 2001 I was unable to find the gravesites of some ancestors in the cemetery indices.I have since found them in the Lapeer County death index and received death certificates for
John Black, Born 27 October 1823, Died 30 August 1901, North Branch Agnes Stewart Black, Born 11 June 1830, Died 10 May 1911, North Branch
John was listed on the death certificate as buried in St. John's Cemetery and Agnes in Maple Grove.The State of Michigan lists these as the same cemetery in North Branch and also lists it as Pleasant View.
Could anyone with a cemetery index please verify whether John and Agnes Black are buried in this cemetery?
I am also looking for the gravesites of six of their other children who were living in North Branch the last I have records
Mary Black (never married), born January 1857, still living 1930 Duncan Black, born April 1862, still living 1911 Robert Black, born 15 November 1864, died North Branch 6 December 1909 William Black, born about 1868, still living 1884 Alexander Black, born 1869-1871, still living 1884 Arthur Black, born about 1875, still living 1930
My great-grandmother, Jennie Black, married John Alexander Carpenter, son of George Carpenter of Columbiaville, Marathon, Lapeer County, and it was actually only when I was in Lapeer County in 2001 that I was able to start reconnecting her to the family.
