Union Chapel - Inkster
(Wayne County)
27103 East Michigan Avenue
Inkster, Michigan
On the South side of Michigan Avenue, two blocks East of Inkster Road and just North of the railroad tracks (NW1/4 Sec. 30, T25, R10E), it is said to have been established in 1833. The cemetery closed in 1940. Records at the Dearborn Historical Museum date back to the early 1880s making this cemetery one of the oldest still existing in this area. The East portion of this cemetery was donated by Hiram Wightman and the balance by Francis Ruff and Anthony Wiethoff. An early local pioneer, William Clay (died October 10, 1853) is buried here.
