Free Death Records on Graves in the Knapp/Aldrich Cemetery in Wayne CO. Michigan

Knapp/Aldrich Cemetery in Wayne CO. Michigan is on Nine Mile Road which is the townline division between Northville and Novi. The Novi Historical Commision has erected a sign there, but I don't know which city it is considered a part of. I transcribed these stones in 1999. The cemetery has been closed to any new interments for many years.... Mary Pont.
