Bay County Death Records

 Rose Anderson's Record Books
 Rose Anderson began reading all the headstones in the Williams Township cemeteries many years ago. She consulted her mother Leona Wirtz for information.  She also sought information form the Williams Township Hall and copied the records that they had.  She also retrieved and copied records from St. Anthony's Church.  The Monitor Township Sexton allowed her to make a copy of the records for the township.  She also read Fremont Cemetery.  Those records are contained in two books, which are indexed and posted here.  If you find a name in the index that is not yet online, please contact Carol Szelogowski for a lookup.
