This pioneer cemetery is around 1850 and most of these early pioneers were scottish. One fellow, William McMillan, [his headstone read] died in Big Rapids , Michigan in July, 1870 a month after they got the [GR&I rairoad ] train on the outskirts of town. Its nice when a lot of information is on the headstone to look up. Another headstone was a log[of stone] on end or a very long tree stump plus a ball shape and a few new designs I haven't seen before. The script was good as well. This storm was dogging me all day but made for some interesting shots.

clay70 This pioneer cemetery was cared for, but the original inhabitants of Priceville (1790s-1850s) were freed black slaves who pushed out by the Irish. They too had a pioneer cemetery that was desecrated by the whites over the century. One headstone was used as a home plate for kid's baseball games...very sad...luckily the modern residents restored what they could find...very sad story...
