Maple Hill is a larger city cemetery, located on the south side of Cadillac, Michigan. I have collected a number of photographs from this cemetery and will post my photographs by lot number.
This lot is close to the lot containing the burials of the George and Lucy (Kaiser) Johnston families, Block T, Lot 461. Interestingly, some of the grave markers are the same style. The southwest portion of this lot was purchased on either 13 or 11 October 1909 by Elizabeth Kaiser
Elizabeth (Long) Kaiser, 1834-1921, was my second great-grandmother. I do not know the date of her marriage to William Kaiser, but they married in Canada. Since the first several children in their family claim a birth place of Vaughan, Ontario, it is likely they married somewhere near the Kaiser’s historic residences in Vaughan. The area was referred to as “Kaiserville”, and today, is the home to an authentic historic village.
Mildred (Kaiser) Rice, 1878-1963. “Aunt Millie”, is what we called this lady, the youngest sibling in the family of William and Elizabeth (Long) Kaiser. Her name was “Amelia” on the 1881 census in Canada, when she was a 3-year old. She was Mildred in volume 2, page 120, record 1637 of Wexford County, Michigan, marriage records, where her 1 May 1900 marriage was recorded.
