Hi David,
I just happened to be searching in Manchester, MI and found your query. I have 2 of the original Oak Grove Cemetery books in Manchester, MI. They belonged to my great grandfather Ernest Christian Jenter who started the funeral home here in 1884. it was in our family 105 years until my dad Ronald Arthur Jenter sold it 16 years ago.

I have transcribed the 2 and new book and am just getting the 1st book transcribed, the 1st book is faint and some are hard to read. But I did find some Coon entries. Here they are.
Please note the last entries are from the Old Cemetery and graves were removed from there in the 1850's - 1860"s amd moved to the present Oak Grove. But it did lest 2 Coon names.

If you wanted the scanned pages, let me know

This cemetery was located at the north bend of River Raisin, on Washington Street in the village of Manchester, Michigan. No tombstones are now seen on the property. Currently a housing subdivision is located at this site. These names were on slips of paper found in the records of the Sarah Caswell Angell Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution at the Bentley Historical Library (formerly Michigan Historical Collections). This reading is not dated and the reader is not named. The form used on the papers has a line for names of parents and another line for names of husband or wife, following by space for additional information. This information may have been obtained from personal knowledge and may not have appeared on the tombstones. All of this is from a contribution by Nancy H. Krohn, Ann Arbor that was published in the Family History Capers, Vol. 25, No. 2, pages 29-30, Fall 2001.
