Maple Hill Cemetery, Cadillac, Wexford, Michigan – Block O Lot 352

This entry is part 19 of 60 in the series Cemeteries

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.

Lot 352, block O was purchased by Henry C. Ballou on 18 August 1893, according to cemetery records. Everyone buried here seems to have some relationship to the Ballou family.


There are a number of burials on the lot, my photos are linked. There was one listing with no birth, death or burial dates for “Ballou, Baby” in a computer printout of burials in the Cadillac Wexford Library at the time I did my search. A small marker with the name “Elton” on the front may mark the baby’s grave. I cannot read the back of the marker from the photos I have, and cannot find any record for his birth or death. However, on the 1900 U.S.census of Cadillac, Wexford, Michigan Sarah A. Ballou, wife of Henry C. Ballou is listed as the mother of 5, 4 living. I can account for her four children alive at that census, so perhaps Elton was the fifth child.
