http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...mp;CSst=24&
is the same cemetery as:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...mp;CSst=24&
The location on the 2nd one (only 11 graves shown) is listed in the wrong county. It is just across the county line into Eaton Co. so many people get confused. It is not in Ingham.
Can you please merge them? Thank You!
