Cummings Cemetery is owned by the Township of Hazelton.


Section 34, Hazelton Township; located on New Lothrop Road, between Juddville and Cronk Roads.

Many graves still on property which is somewhat overgrown after several restoration attempts. A wooden plaque at the entrance lists some of the following burials, but there are many errors on the plaque. Other names have been added/corrected by family members.

The cemetery has been abandoned for many years, and has been restored by many groups over recent years. It is owned by the township; deeded to them from the Cummings family in March 9,1865, even though some burials were made in the 1850's when it was a Cummings family plot. The official record of transfer was discovered at the Corunna Courthouse, by Len Thomas, of Swartz Creek, in January, 2011. The Almond Cummings headstone affirms the Cummings, not Cummins, name.

To reach this cemetery from Juddville starting at N. Durand Road for one mile, turn right onto New Lothrop Road. The cemetery will be on the right or west side of the road in about 1/4 mile.

* Records indicate that Myron, Mary & Infant Walworth bodies were removed to Elmwood Cemetery, but the headstones remain at the Cummin Cemetery. Records indicate that Diana Cummings (child of ???????) was also moved to Elmwood Cemetery.

The Michigan Death Certificate for Rachel Janet (Wright) Dowen lists her burial in Hazelton Cemetery in New Lothrop area near a settlement called Hazelton. There was such a cemetery located in the southwest corner of Section 24, and adjacent to an old log school. By the 1940's the headstones had been removed prior to the new owner moving onto the property. Could Rachel's body been moved to Cummings Cemetery at that time?

On a visit to Cummings Cemetery on October 2, 2013, the wooden plaque was falling apart and will not last much longer. The Andrew Haun headstone had been placed upright after many years - and the name had not appeared on earlier cemetery transcriptions.
