Greenwood Township Cemetery, Wexford County, Michigan

This entry is part 4 of 60 in the series Cemeteries

Greenwood Township Cemetery is three miles north of M-42 in Section 36, Greenwood township. M-42 was recently reclassified as a Wexford County road, 16 mile road, rather than a State highway. Some of these burials are distant cousins of Papa, some may be distant cousins, and some just names that seemed important when I visited the cemetery.


George M. Burdick
George Mark Burdick was the son of Harrison H. Burdick and Martha A. Martin. Although many of the Burdicks that originated in New York are related, I have not documented any relationship of this family to Papa.


Harrison H. Burdick, born in New York and died in Wexford County. The first Michigan record I’ve found for him is in Constantine Township, Cass County, Michigan. He later resided in Lagrange County Indiana; Porter Township, Cass County, Michigan; Colfax Township, Wexford County, Michigan; and finally in Greenwood Township.

Harry Burdick, wife Jesse B. Burdick, and baby Gracie. This was Harrison R. Burdick, son of Harrison and Martha. He married Jessie Babcock; Jessie married Harry’s brother, George M. Burdick, after Harry died.

Harry L. and Vernice Burdick. Harry LaVille Burdick, 1890 – 1965, was Papa’s first cousin, once removed.

Helen Burdick Johns and husband F. Russell Johns. Helen was the daughter of Harry L. Burdick and Vernice, Papa’s second cousin, once removed.

Martha A. Martin Burdick, wife of Harrison R. Burdick, no documented relationship.

Gordon Russell Johns, Papa’s third cousin. He was a son of Helen M. Burdick and F. Russell Johns.

KETCHAM an older large stone. I took the “Ketcham” photos because a cousin of Papa’s has Ketcham’s in her tree.  We have no relationship to these people, and she may or may not.
