Placeway Cemetery
Hamburg, Livingston County, Michigan

Lat: 42° 27' 44"N, Lon: 83° 53' 35"W
Hamburg Township, Section 19

Contributed by Julie Witkowski, May 26, 2009, last edited Jun 28, 2009 [jfwski@hotmail.com]. Total records = 235.

This cemetery is on the NW corner of M-36 and Chambers Road which is four miles west and one mile north of the town of Hamburg, Michigan.

This cemetery is also known as the Whitcomb Cemetery. I was not able to find out who owns and maintains it. I did however compare my reading with a DAR list done in 1920 and have added those names. Judging from the dates it was established in the early 1800s.

I walked and read this cemetery in May 2009, it includes all existing and legible stones and markers at that time.
