5 days - Maple Grove Cemeteries, New Lothrop & St. Michaels

Real Maple Grove Cemetery 2017 Tour, stops # 8 & 9 -
New Lothrop & St. Michael's
Visited 8/2014  These weren't that far from each other, but I can't find St. Michael's on Find a Grave anywhere!  There are several listed in New Lothrop in Shiawassee county, but St. Mike's isn't one of them!

Shiawassee county is located in south/central lower peninsula, a bit south of Saginaw Bay. 

It was a small cemetery with 180 interments, and would have liked to explore more thoroughly, but the mosquitoes were swarming!

There was no actual sign and the plots were all set far back from the road.  This paper is the only clue that we were in the right place. 

St. Michael's.  This wasn't a very big cemetery but yet again,  I wish I could have explored more.  As you can tell by the dark sky in some of the pictures, there was a nasty storm rolling in.  Me + lightning is not something I want to learn about!
The sky looked worse than I could get on camera. 
Such a unusual stone for a toddler.
Usually I see lambs. 
If I remember correctly,  a log like this symbolizes a life cut short. 
Beautiful photos!
Of course showers in the afternoon!
