Yerkes Cemetery
Northville, Wayne County, Michigan

Eight Mile Road
Northville MI

Lat: 4226'16"N, Lon: 8327'15"W
Section 2, Northville Twp.

Contributed by Georgina M Gaddis, Feb 03, 2003 [danielgaddis@comcast.net].  Total records = 227.

Cemetery can be reached by taking 8 mile road east from Northville, it is on the south side of the road about one mile from town, northeast of Curtis Lake.

The city of Northville takes care of this cemetery. Still being used and well maintained. It is just south of the county line for Wayne and Oakland counties.
I physically went to this cemetery to transcribe the tombstones/markers. If any tombstones/markers were missing, I made a notation if applicable.
