    I received a comment on Facebook about this post, and I am copying it to here, since it helps describe the neighborhood so well. This was posted by Mary:

    This is my old stomping grounds. I grew up a mile north and half mile east of the blinker light. There used to be a store on the northeast corner of the intersection. I have lots of family in this cemetery.

    Oh BTW, the north-south roads are named for Michigan governors. Take Washington Road (at the blinker light) and go west directly into Ithaca and US 127. Back a mile to the north from Washington Road on St Charles Road and then east a couple of miles is the Lafayette Township Cemetery. A lot of my family is buried there too.

    St. Charles Road is so named because it was used to go to St. Charles (in Saginaw County). That’s like Washington Road as you get to Montcalm County is called Ithaca-Stanton Road because it directly links Ithaca (in Gratiot) and Stanton (in Montcalm).

    The people who named the roads back then were just practical–this route takes you here, so it became named for that route. Bit of trivia, Washington Road was supposed to be the original M-57 before it ended up where it is now a few miles south–at least that’s what the old timers say. Don’t know why it was moved down where it is now.

    One last thing—the country school at the corner of Barry and St Charles Roads is Frost No. 5. It is where my father and his siblings went to school and where my 4 older sibling went to school. I went there up through 3rd grade, we then annexed into Ithaca Public School District. My older siblings had a choice which school to go to, either Breckenridge or Ithaca, when they finished 8th grade at Frost. Both buses went by our house. One sister went to Breckenridge, the other 3 to Ithaca.

    I visited this cemetery specifically to find certain graves. I did not record information about any other burials. I will e-mail you some sources for Gratiot County, Michigan Genealogy.
