Canton in Wayne County, Michigan — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Cherry Hill Cemetery
Settlers, Soldiers, and Statesmen
Walking among the headstones
of Canton's pioneer families, one cannot escape their contribution to American history. You see the Hustons, the Lewises, the Gills, and veterans from every war, beginning with the War of 1812 through modern times. They tended homesteads, cultivated rich farmland, started businesses, organized government, built schools and churches. They lived, fought, and sometimes died for the American ideal. Only a few generations removed from today's visitors, these men and women laid the foundation for today's Canton.
