To reach this cemetery from Harbor Beach drive south for 2 miles on Hwy 25, turn left onto Jenks Road. It is located immediately on the north side of Jenks Road.
The much larger cemetery, Rock Falls Cemetery is located on the south side of Jenks Road. Both cemeteries extend from Hwy 25 to the Lake Huron shoreline.
Our Lady of Lake Huron Cemetery is owned and maintained by the church and school in Harbor Beach by the same name. It has often been referred to as the Catholic cemetery or Catholic 'half' of the Rock Falls Cemetery. (e.g. Frank Murphy, a former governor is buried in Our Lady of Lake Huron, and a commemorative plaque refers to burial in Rock Falls)
Names have been taken from the booklet that was compiled by Robert B. LaBelle Port Austin, MI, 1998. Duplications have been removed.
I have added 'some' minor data to the above source, from my own family information, which was added to this cemetery since this directory was published. I placed in brackets and an asterisk * follows each entry.
