Odell Cemetery
Rankin, Genesee County, Michigan

Lat: 42° 53' 08"N, Lon: 83° 43' 27"W
Mundy Township, Section 26

Contributed by Len Thomas, Aug 31, 2007, last edited Sep 03, 2007 [len40tho@comcast.net]. Total records = 98.

To reach cemetery from the village of Rankin, travel south on Jennings Road for 1/2 mile to Baldwin Road; turn east on Baldwin Road and travel 1 mile, just beyond Torrey Road. The cemetery is on the north side of Baldwin Road, between Torrey and Fenton Road, east of the US-23 Freeway.

The Odell Cemetery is believed to have been established in 1835, and it is unknown by whom. The cemetery is now owned by the Mundy Township and a recent renovation has been completed by area volunteers. Inquiries should be directed to the Township Clerk.

I compiled this transcription in July of 2007, from headstones plus addition info from earlier transcriptions in 1944 and 1966 and also Township death and burial records.
