Other_Information
This cemetary is located at the original Tobin homestead site near Glen Lake Narrows. The land was in the family of Walter and Helen Tobin, who owned a small resort near the Lake front property. there is a public road that runs along the Lakes edge. I visited this cemetary in the 1950s, and 1968 when I visited my grandfather's brother, Walter Tobin. The cemetary was reached on foot and in the woods behind the home of Walter and Helen Tobin.

Support:
my paternal first cousin, John tobin of Empire, Michigan and his brother, Donald Tobin of empire would be the best contacts. They are the sons of Harold tobin and Sirley Denny, aka Sirley Bergstrom.
