There is a nearly hidden plot in Macomb County where many of our earliest settlers are buried. In this

charming two acre Kukuk Cemetery lies the remains of John Beutel, a Civil War Soldier. John enlisted

when he was 18 years old in the Union Army. He was wounded at the Battle of Chickamauga where most of

his regiment were captured by General James Longstreet. Many of them died in Confderate prisons, such

as Andersonville. Type CIVIL in the search space on the left side of the screen to see more pictures
