Section 19. On Holt Road, a bit West of the intersection of Holt Road and Hagadorn Road in Mason. On the corner of Holt & Hagadorn Roads is an old schoolhouse which is the future office of Discount Trees. This is an inactive cemetery - possibly on private land. The headstones are either buried under the dirt and grass or broken. Someone has taken the time to prop up some of the headstones. No sign associated with this cemetery.
From The Pioneer History of Ingham County, published in 1923. Compiled and arranged by Mrs. Franc L. Adams, Secretary of the Ingham County Pioneer and Historical Society:
"Just west of our school is the Strickland cemetery. I am sorry to say it is a disgrace, grown up to brush, and it ought to shame any man in town enough to see that it is put in good shape. Once in our Sunday school we appointed a cemetery committee to put it in order. We thought we had the good work started, but the men would not act, so there we are. Some would like to move it, while others say the law is such it cannot be moved. It is full of graves, and a good share of their relatives are gone, so there is no one to take any interest in the matter."
"I find that Joel B. Strickland took up his land from the government Dec. 10, 1835, on section 19, and John Strickland took up land on the same date on section 20. Nathaniel Blaine owned the land on the north side of the road going east."
