This cemetery is on private property. It is listed in the Michigan Cemetery Atlas as McCoy Cemetery #90. Local people call this the Dragoo Cemetery. There is only one McCoy buried in this site. Due to the desire of the property owners, age and very poor condition of the cemetery, we have decided not to give further direction to the cemetery. According to the property owner, in 1968, many of the deceased were moved to Oak Ridge Cemetery at the same time Kathryn Park interments were relocated. Please contact the WebMaster with information about others you know to be buried in this cemetery. Brackets [ ] contain comments by the transcriber or information which has been offered by ancestors.
