“oldest cemetery in Michigan”

On July 31, 1763, Chief Pontiac and 250 braves hid in the trees above what eventually becameElmwood Cemetery and killed between 60 to 160 British solders. Today many people claim to see strange orbs and other odd anomalies in the cemetery as well as the apparitions of the men who died that fateful day. One of the most famous ghosts at Elmwood Cemetery is known as "The Veiled Lady." She is said to invoke terrible feelings of fear and dread in anyone who sees her. And those who are brave enough to stand in front of her grave under the moonlight report disembodied voices and strange smells. - Roadtrippers "Historic Cemetery containing the founding Fathers of Detroit and Michigan.It includes a lot of Civil War veterans. It is also the oldest cemetery in Michigan that is non-denominational. Historic Elmwood Cemetery is the oldest continuously operating, non-denominational cemetery in Michigan. The cemetery was established in 1846 and incorporated in 1849 as a non-profit corporation by an act of the Michigan Legislature. Founded by some of early Detroit’s leading citizens, Elmwood quickly expanded from its original 42 acres to its current size of 86 acres and became the final resting-place of tycoon and laborer alike." - http://www.elmwoodhistoriccemetery.org/
