Wayne County, Michigan Civil War Grave Sites
Contributed by Richard E. Carden, Commander, S.U.V.C.W. Camp 427, Dept.
of Michigan [UA636@cs.com].
Our Camp, The Sergeant John S. Cosbey Camp of the Sons of Union Veterans
of the Civil War, located in Dearborn, Michigan, has compiled over 1,000
burial sites of Union Civil War Veterans. This project is in conjunction
with the National Department of the S.U.V.C.W.
Our Camp has the jurisdiction of all of Western Wayne Co, in Michigan,
including the Downriver area. We do NOT cover the City of Detroit,
Michigan, as that is under the jurisdiction of Camp 101, Dept. of Michigan.
Basically our Camp is "in charge" of all of Wayne County,
Michigan, except for the City of Detroit.
This search for Union Veterans has been one of hard work...but a great
deal of pleasure. Basically we "hunted" all of the cemeteries
within our area, first logging those with U.S. Civil War stones, then
checking the names and dates in the data base of the Soldiers and Sailors
of Michigan Civil War records for those with "non military"
