Further note concerning Haire Cemetery: I am related to the Haire Family - James Haire's wife Amy was one of my 2x gr-grandfather's sisters. I was in Richmond this summer on a research and meet the descendants trip. My cousin and I went out to the property and inquired about the graves. The current resident on the property is a renter who directed us to the owner. We went down the road and visited with Mrs. Hessel who told us she has deeded the property to her sons. They were concerned about the graves and wanted to honor those who had been buried there and seemed to have been forgotten. They met with the Macomb County courts and with the assistance of the coroner, they had the remains moved from the property to a proper burial in the Meade Cemetery (Section 1, 26 Mile Road east of Romeo Plank Road).
