Rice Cemetery, Monroe Co., Michigan

My day trip visiting cemeteries in Michigan in August 2007 included a quick trip up to Monroe County and the Rice Cemetery.

My goal was to pay my respects to Flora Montanye Osborn who had done work on the Goss family line years ago.

I drove through Adrian and headed east toward the town of Milan.  The Rice Cemetery is southwest of Milan on Dennison Road north of Hictory and south of Redman Road.  It is nestled in a grove of trees on the left if you are going north.

Find A Grave has a listing for this cemetery, a map and tombstone photographs.

I made a call to the genealogical society for help in obtaining a published transcription of this cemetery.  Here is the Genealogical Society of Monroe Co., Michigan link:  http://gsmcmi.org/index.php

My trip was complete and I headed west back to Fort Wayne traveling back through the town of Adrian, the county seat of Lenawee County.

Here I am next to Flora and her husband’s stone.  It was a very good day!

Flora and Me!
