Re: Tombstone identification
I have been doing massive research in the Carlton & Hastings, Barry County, Michigan area for about a year now. My gg grandparents were from Carlton. The biggest problem is that a fire broke out years ago & destroyed most all their records. I have been trying to locate their graves, with no luck.
When they start to put M - 43 between Hastings and Carlton, all work had to stop when bones started to be unearthed. It was discovered then that an old cemetery, West Carlton Cemetery, was at one time much larger than believed. Hence the wide curve now in M - 43.
I am very interested in this headstone for several reasons. Even if we cannot discover who it belongs to, I am working with Brad from the Carlton Center to reopen the West Carlton Cemetery. If you could please contact me, it would be greatly [email protected]
