The Chubb Cemetery is located on Warren Avenue, just west of Hix Road, in the Westland. (If you make a right turn here, you are about 2 or 3 blocks from the FHC Library). In 1825 Glode D. Chubb and his wife, Pamelia purchased farm land here, from the government and a frame church was built on the property in 1828. They then sold the land to Stephen G. Hayward on November 3, 1852. Hayward recorded that about 3 rods of land were already in use as burial ground, which he continued to maintain.(Submitted on June 1, 2021, by J.T. Lambrou of New Boston, Michigan.)
