I made my first trip to Woodmere Cemetery in Detroit, Michigan in June 2007.
We left Detroit when I was a little girl, only 7 years old. I had only been back there once when I was 20. When I began doing genealogy I found out just how many of my immediate ancestors were born, lived and died in Detroit. And, how many cousins, nieces and nephews still lived there.
Buried in Woodmere Cemetery are 31 of my ancestors.
The above list was easily created in my Legacy 8 program by using the Master Lists/Location feature.
That list includes great grandparents, 2nd great grandparents, grand uncles & aunts and many cousins.
The grounds at Woodmere Cemetery are very pretty.
Several of my immediate ancestors are buried in the Southlake section of the cemetery.

Among those names on the list above are my Lindsays. My paternal grandmother was Marie Wallace Lindsay (1888-1970). I’m fortunate to have several cousins that I’m in touch with regularly, who are also Lindsay descendants.
Here’s the very pretty Lindsay surname marker.
And here are the Lindsay headstones for which I have photos. My 2nd great grandparents, William Lindsay and his wife Mary Wallace. And three of their children, my great granduncle, Robert Lindsay, Sr., my great grandaunt, Elizabeth “Betsy” Lindsay and my great granduncle, Richard “Dick” Lindsay.
