This letter came to me from: Carol Harrison;  on June 6, 2001
You are doing a wonderful thing putting all those cemetery photos online for everyone to see. Your website is fantastic. I noticed under Crawford Township you have the McKenzie Cemetery listed, but with no stones remaining. The McKenzie's are my ancestors and I am so sad that the stones are all gone. But thank goodness I have photos of the stones that were still there in 1981, including William and Sophia  McKenzie, who came to the area before 1830. These photos were taken for me by Francis Smith who was curator of the Wyandot County Historical Society. They are wonderful color Polaroid photos. I have had copies made and would love to send them to you if you would like to have them to put on your website. I have a list of 18 graves in the cemetery from the Wyandot Cemetery book and will also send a copy of that page, but I have photos of only seven of the gravestones. I think that is all that remained in 1981. Vandals, Frances said in her letter.  So sad. This was a small family cemetery and looks to be near a road, so I guess was an easy target for vandals. If you would like to have the copies of these gravestones, please E-mail your mailing address to me and I will put them in the mail to you right away.

Thank you very much.


note from Kris: I responded and have received a nice letter, the listing of graves and the photos on Jun 15, 2001. The listing for this cemetery in the Wyandot Cemetery book says this- "..Situated 22 feet from Co. Rt. 5 on the north side of the road, and 2.6 miles from St. Rte. 53 and 0.6 mile west of Twp. Rd. 107.... No stones are remaining, if there ever were any, other than recorded. If there were stones they have been gone long ago that there is an excellent stand of well kept grass." Now the odd thing about this is the photos were taken by this aforementioned curator in November, 1981. When I have time I intend to take a look for it myself.
