Ottawa County Poor Farm Cemetery

Death records of Polkton Township listing persons who died in the Ottawa County Infirmary in Eastmanville, and are
listed as being buried in the Ottawa County Poor Farm Cemetery, or assumed to be there.

Most of the information is very skimpy on each death record, and some of it is not definite

The stones are rectangular in shape, and all are in excellent condition.  The area was dowsed by Robert Mahaney and he determined that there are 22 burials located here.
The tombstones were recorded in early April of 1997 by members of the Holland Genealogical Society who visited
the "Poor Farm".
