A note to the researcher: While there are approximately 25 known burials in the Starr Cemetery, there are relatively few grave markers. It can be assumed that many graves may have been originally marked with wooden crosses. There are vestiges of some wooden markers at the date of this publication (1999) and some field stones with no engraving have also been used to mark burials.

Additional information on unmaked burials at the Starr Cemetery is from the records and notes of Mr. Elmer Wurst, Pleasantview Township Supervisor from 1957-1988 and the Cemetery information File of Greenwood Cemetery in Petoskey, Michigan.
