164    MINNIS FAMILY CEMETERY (ca. 1834)

      Location - In west central Bingham Township NW of the intersection of Teer Road (SR #1101) and Bradshaw Quarry Road (SR #1100 and SR #1115). The stone-walled cemetery lies on the right hand side about 100 ft north up Kinlin Trail, a new road about 100 ft west of the intersection.

      Survey - This cemetery was surveyed on February 28, 1974. Visited and photographed in January 2005 by Milton Forsyth, who also revised the location instructions.

      Graves, Marked - 12 marked graves.

      Graves, Unmarked - 55 unmarked graves. There are probably many more.

      Comment - See historical comments under entry for 'Pickard, John'.

      Status [2005] - Cemetery is unattended and overgrown and the stone walls are partially broken down. There are still some standing grave markers; apparently the appearance is much like it was in the 1970s.
