Brant Cemetery

Bainbridge Twp., Berrien County, Michigan

The cemetery is located on the east side of Park Road, approximately one-half mile south of the intersection of Park Road and Napier Avenue in Spinks Corners. The property was once part of the Nate Brant farm. It is presently under restoration thanks to Mr. Joard Brant, great-grandson of Nate Brant.

Brenda Sears transcribed the markers in this cemetery and took pictures of all remaining headstones in Aug. 2003. The headstones in picture format are marked by the * following the name of deceased. Highlighted data is questionable and will be corrected soon. All data in parenthesis ( ) comes from vital records.
