CEMETERIES

Charlevoix Co MI

A little way south of Charlevoix, where M-66 climbs around a curve onto the terrace there is a lonely little old cemetery on the west side of the road. When Brookside Cemetery was established, many of these graves were moved to the new cemetery, but not all. Somewhere among the weeds and blackberry brambles, there is a grave with an East Jordan, or rather South Arm, story connected with it. Solomon lsaman came here from Olean, New York, in 1866, nearly 80 years ago. A few years later a fifteen-year-old nephew came from the old home to visit his uncle, In the midst of the winter the lad was stricken with pneumonia. The Indians living here used all their primitive remedies and methods, while Mr. Isaman started on foot for Traverse City to get medicine for the boy. He returned, to find the boy dead. A coffin was made and the body placed in it, then it was put on a hand sled and the men drew it from here to the little cemetery south of Charlevoix. They tried to mark the grave so it could be found when the deep snows were gone but were never able to locate it again.
