County Poor Farm Cemetery  / Ingham County Home Cemetery

(Okemos MI)  




The Ingham County Home Cemetery is located at 3860 Dobie Road, Okemos, Michigan.

(Located next to the Ingham County Medical Care Facility on the South side) 

This cemetery was used to bury residents of the Ingham County Poor Farm from the late

1800s until the early 1940s.  These people lived in the Poor Farm because they were unable to care for themselves.

Their tombstones are a reminder of their lives and the place that they called "home".

    Section 10, On Columbia Road near the intersection of Columbia and Elliott Roads.

              *  From The Pioneer History of Ingham County, published in 1923.  Compiled and arranged by Mrs. Franc L. Adams, Secretary of the Ingham County Pioneer and Historical Society:   "Of those who located and settled here in a very early day all were of a class that came to stay and stayed to build a home in the wilderness, and built it, to compel the forest to give way to cultured field, and compelled it, and here they lived their remaining days.  Of the 32 pioneers that came very early, 30 lie in the North Aurelius Cemetery, while one died in New York and one in Ohio."
