OLD ORDER AMISH CEMETERY
Mills Township, Midland County, Michigan

Located in section 31, on the North side of Bombay Road, between Sturgeon and Dublin. 
Founded in 1911 by families who came from Indiana, Illinois, and White Cloud, Michigan. 
The community gradually left after the death of their bishop, Peter Yoder, in 1928. The 
caretaker, Mrs. Ray Rogers of Hope, MI, at this reading October 31, 1998 is 94. She is 
very knowledgeable about the cemetery and the early history of Mills and Larkin 
Townships. The records were gone over with Mrs. Rogers and then Margaret Wegner & 
Cheryl Speaker  walked the cemetery and transcribed it.
