Please Note: We did our best to read the originals, but the lettering was often difficult to decipher. Also some families used V instead of W, R could be mistaken for K, i for e or u, some names were listed under different spellings in different original documents etc. 
This list actually contains some Chassell residents who died previous to 1952 (found in Dr. Willson's death certificate books)  that lived in Chassell, but were buried elsewhere as indicated in the "buried where" column: CH=Chassell, FH=Forest Hill (in Portage Township), HAN=Hancock, HO=Houghton, LS=Lake Side (outside of Hancock), LV=Lake View (W of Calumet).  Other abbreviations used in the data base: S= There was a Stone found in the cemetery for this person; NA= Their plot is located in the New Addition of the cemetery; old= Their plot is located in the old section of the cemetery; org= Their plot is located in the orginal section of the cemetery, the blocks in the original section were numbered by the alphabet A thru W.
