*The Saginaw County Register of Deeds holds and interesting number of land transfer records that show the transfer of ownership of an area now known to be an Indian Burial Ground. The area is currently a part of the grounds of Saginaw Valley College. The land transfer that took place in 1878 between Leonard Walters and his wife and Francis Poierrier agree that there will be no further burials on this land. This land on the grounds of the Saginaw Valley College is near the old Indian Reservation just west of Davis Road.

  • A small burial ground is located in Section 25, about 500 feet east of Michigan Avenue. Members of the Davis family are buried there. See 1877 Plat Map for placement of section 25.
  • Another small burial area is remembered as having been located near the corner of Michigan and Liberty roads. This area was approximately 400 feet east of Michigan and 300 feet south of Liberty Road in Section 25. It is not known who was buried in the plot. See 1877 Plat Map for placement of section 25.

This information compiled about the cemeteries of Saginaw County was taken from a number of resources by the previous county coordinators. Some of this information was compiled by the individual township supervisors of the county in the late 1960's and provided to us by Patrick Bohinski.
