Out in the country on the road that probably has the most names in the county D-19, or Pinckney Howell Rd. is located the family burial ground of the HARGER family.
Sadly a tornado went through this cemetery years ago and destroyed many of the burials and thus there are no records for those sites.
It is technically located on the NE 1/4 of Section 23. Andrew C. HARGER bought the property in 1848 and it was surveyed in 1849.
The regulations stipulated that he had the right to exclude anyone who had not shared in the expense of the cemetery and it's upkeep.
The cemetery is still in use today, and since I live near there, I see funeral processions there every few months.
During the 1940's, the DAR came out to Livingston county and transcribed many of the rural cemeteries and this one was included in those books. There was three indexes and they were combined into one index which I used as the beginning of the brand new table format which not only shows the interred but the cemetery names which are linked to the individual cemetery pages.
