Tombstone Tuesday - October 25, 2011

I am not sure why I abruptly stopped doing my Tombstone Tuesdays last year…Lack of time I suppose… I never stopped visiting cemeteries. So it is time to start writing about them again…Much has happen in the year since I wrote one so I will try to back track a bit.
In September, when I was visiting Michigan for a memorial service, I made it a point to visit several cemeteries while the weather was at it’s best. SO today I’ll show you a couple.

These photos are from the Maple Grove Cemetery in North Branch, Michigan. It is the McArthur plot in the front of the cemetery near the entrance.

Robert McArthur  was born on November 5, 1806 and died November 23, 1887.

 The second photo is that of his wife Cordelia E.  McArthur.  She was born on December 8, 1813 and died on April 27, 1886. 

I'll look around a bit and see if I can find anything out about these early North Branch settlers.

Until then... Jan
