Dr. & Mrs. Caulkins Buried In Thornville Cemetery

 Plat map of the Thornville Cemetery in Dryden Twp., Lapeer County, Michigan (green and blue markings are where my relatives are buried):

Mrs. John Caulkins (Elizabeth) (1824-1904) was buried in the Thornville Cemetery.  Elizabeth's husband, Dr. John Caulkins (1822-1913),was also buried there.

Doctor Caulkins submitted health reports, including a diphtheria outbreak.  The McGraw family was particularly hard hit by the illness.
