Last Wednesday, my sister went to the Lapeer Historical Society and this is what she writes: "Went to the Historical Society today and the only name they have for Five lakes Cemetery is the Lynch Family. He said the other tombstones were unreadable. There were 12 altogether. I thought there were more buried there than that. They found one Lange buried in the 1800"s. They checked the records from the County Clerk's office and Grandma death was not file in Lapeer." I am not sure who the Lange is that was buried there in the 1800's. I have not had a chance to talk with my sister. I have searched all the counties in Michigan for her death record and no luck. I wonder if a record was ever made. The only other county that I know to check is Macomb as her family settled in Center Line. I know her last child was born in March 1888 and her husband remarried in 1889. She may have died from childbirth. It is hard to imagine leaving her home to stay with family, she had 4 other young children. I do plan to check St. Mary's cemetery records in Burnside to see if she may be in an unmarked grave. This cemetery was established around 1860 and is associated with the Catholic church. The family was Catholic. Thanks for thinking of my G-Grandma and good luck on your research.
