Hello James,

If you go the the USGENWEB site for Barry County, there is an index there for all the cemeteries in Barry County. You can access the USGENWEB program by going to and the scroll down the home page to the USGENWEB link. Click on state: Michigan; Counties; Barry. It lists everyone alphabetically.

Good luck.

Meyer Cemetery included in Woodland list

Surnames: Bessey, Dillenbeck, Fender, Sweitzer
I had spent hours in the Woodland Memorial Cemetery on several occasions trying to find our ancestors who are on the Woodland Cemetery list.
Last week I found that they are actually buried in the Meyers Cemetery in Woodland Twp. on the East side of M-50, southeast of Lake Odessa. Meyers Cemetery isn't even on the Cemetery list. It is mowed, but more than half of the remaining headstones are broken and/or stacked by a tree.
Is there a list of the people who are buried in Meyers Cemetery? It's impossible to tell from the Woodland combined list who is in which cemetery.

I didn't try to document them but photographed some of the markers.

attached are:
BESSEY, John "Died Jun 25 1857 aged 25Y.6M.2D" (1832)
DILLENBECK, Sylvester, "Died Dec 7 1859 Aged 34years and 21 days", leaning against the right side of the tree
FENDER, Jacob, born July 1812, Jeckenbach (now in Rhineland-Pfalz Germany) died "Mar 26, 1871,aged 58 Y'rs, 8 M's, 15 D's" Woodland Twp., Michigan

Also have photos of
DILLENBECK, Infant dau of Sylvester d 11-19-1853, 2 wks, 1 d

I don't see that link on the webpage, but use this url to get there. The accuracy of the Woodland Memorial list is questionable. My parents and other relatives and friends are buried there and are not listed. My mother died in 1985 and is not listed, I don't know when the list was last updated.
