FRASER TOWNSHIP CEMETERY, also known as the "OLD STATE ROAD CEMETERY" located in FRASER TOWNSHIP, BAY COUNTY, MICHIGAN.  T 16 N - R 4 E. NE 1/4 OF NW 1/4 OF Sec. 11, on the west side of Au Sable-Old State Rd. between Coggins and Newberg Roads. 

This cemetery has been in use since the early 1880s.  Many graves appear to be unmarked.  It is well cared for and is operated by the Township.  

Please note that the photos are 640x480, 256 colors, and slight JPEG compression.  While this creates rather large files (66K to 135K per photo) it does give the best resolution for picking out details on the headstones.  Please note that all photos are (C) Copyright 1999 by Bill Carney.  Permission is granted for individuals to download the photos for their own personal, not for profit use.  Use by commercial or non-profit corporations, "data co-operatives", etc. is strictly prohibited.  (I have to protect my rights from those would would steal these and sell them as their own).

Starting in the Northeast corner, to the right of the gate:
