Oakwood Cemetery
Grand Blanc, Genesee County, Michigan

Lat: 42° 54' 44"N, Lon: 83° 36' 09"W
Grand Blanc Township, Section 23

Contributed by Len Thomas, Sep 21, 2009, last edited Sep 22, 2009 [len40tho@comcast.net]. Total records = 199.

To reach this cemetery, in Grand Blanc, drive south on S Saginaw Street, to McCandlish Road on the east side of Saginaw Street and turn left. Then immediately turn left onto Leach Road (a narrow dirt road). Follow the road beyond the golf course on the right, about 1 mile.

The Oakwood Cemetery is now owned and operated by the Grand Blanc Township. It dates back to the late 1800s and I do not know how it was established. It is still used occasionally for burial.

I walked the cemetery on Sep 16, 2009. This is a complete transcription.
