Welchers in Charleston Cemetery, Cass Co., Michigan (Posting by Bonnie):

Two separate plots within this small cemetery:

Catherine Welcher, Dec 28, 1818-Nov 14, 1895 (this is Catherine Beresford Welcher, wife of Abram).

Margaret, badly worn pillar-type stone. Looks like it says "wife of" but I can't guarantee it. Nothing else is legible. Who is this???

Next to it is an unmarked plot. I imagine this is Abram.

Harriet, wife of Abram Welcher died Mar 7, 1856, aged 40 yrs 6 mos.

Harriet L. died Sept 23, 1859 then looks like 7 yrs __ mos
then something else illegible then also infant son d. Mar 26 (?), 1837(?). Children of A & C Welcher. I expect these are children of Abram and Catherine (which means the infant son's death date must be 1857), but I didn't know of these kids. Am I right?

In the other plot are:

Alfred Welsher d. Dec 29, 1890 age 46 yrs 3 mos 23 ds Where does he fit in?? (spelled with an s)

Henry H. son of J& B Welcher. There is a date on this stone, but the stone has been broken off and "replanted" so the death date is below the surface. I didn't risk knocking over the stone by digging down to read the date. I assume this is son of John and Bridget? Can you tell me the date?

Then a military style stone...Jno Welcher Co A 12th Mich Inf. No date. Assume this is John of John & Bridget? When did he die?

Mrs. John Welcher d. June21, 1880, age 65 years. Assume this is Bridget?
