Shearer Cemetery

45226 North Territorial Road
Plymouth, Michigan

This Plymouth Township Cemetery is abandoned and, until recently, was overgrown with brush. Students from Salem High School cleared the cemetery of some dead trees and brush and you can now walk through it.
There are no longer active burials. Although the name is Shearer and there are members of the Shearer Family buried here, they are not the only families located on this site.
Apparently because of the condition of this cemetery, there are several discrepancies in the stones. As noted in 1956, some remains were removed and re-interred at Riverside Cemetery in Plymouth.
