Thornville Cemetery is located between Dryden & Metamora in Lapeer County, Michigan. As you can see, there's no easy vehicle entrance to the cemetery but there is a set of stone stairs next to the mailbox. Who gets mail there?? Odd. Anyway, my sister had joined me for some exploring, so we parked on a dirt road about 1/4 mile away and walked back.
I see I need to enter some of these onto Find A Grave, since I went to look up info on some of the stones I took pics of and they don't have memorials. I'm slacking, since I usually do this right away. Don't worry. I shall enter them.
Interesting to see a boy named Pearl.
We may have giggled at this name, but it was a common sight in Thornville.
I was being watched!
This one intrigues me. They're all kids, the oldest 15. 7 of the 8 have the last name Ferrier. Most passed away in the 1920s. This will be put in Find a Grave shortly.
Most of the older stones had elaborate carvings that were interesting to look at.
