Searchable Database of North West County Cemeteries

The above contains 4,336 readings and records of Seville and Sumner Townships.  September 28, 2003

There is a new addition to this page. The township pages are under development. We hope to feature history of each on these pages. Seville and Pine River are up with photos only right now. Please stop back for updates. If you would like to coordinate one of the pages for a township, gather information, be the township historian please contact me.

Cemeteries in Gratiot Co. are taken care of by the government of the township they are in. Below is listed the Township Office Address if available (I am working on getting the rest and hopefully with cooperation from the township officials it won't be too long before I get the missing ones listed.) and the cemeteries that are located in each township. Many of the Gratiot County Cemeteries have been transcribed in 1933-39 and put into books which are available for purchase from:

The Gratiot County Historical and Genealogical Society
Post Office Box 73
Ithaca, Michigan 48847
Phone: 1-989-875-4974

(better to write at this time)

For burials after the above dates and the ones noted below please contact the township or church office.
