MICHAELS CEMETERY


Also known as Mair Cemetery.  Travel 3 miles east of Callaway on the Ryno Road, make a sharp turn north (or left) onto a minimum maintenance road, then go 1/2 mile more.  The cemetery is on the west side of the road.

This is an isolated cemetery, located on a hill east of town.  It was fenced at one time but the fence is gone now.  It is not pastured, but the grass is cut for prairie hay.  A family by the name of Michael owned the land and lived below the hill and across the road east of the cemetery.  Some grave sites are not identified, some were buried there and later moved to Rose Hill cemetery.
