Ottawa Center Cemetery in Ottawa County, Michigan

Although only a small cemetery off the main road and along an old dirt road it has three former members of the Old 3rd buried in it: Hosea Tracy and his son Nathan and William Van Dyke. As you can see, Nathan and William have brand-new government markers.
