At the summit of Mount Franklin in the Hanson Hills Recreation Area of Grayling, Michigan, is a fenced military cemetery that occupies only 2,100 square feet and contains the graves of two servicemen. It’s quite a unique sight to climb a tubing hill or walk the disc golf course in summer and then discover this solemn military cemetery just off to the side.
The gravestones mark the resting place of Private First Class John A. Conroy and Private George A Laine. Both were part of Michigan’s 125th Infantry Regiment in the early 20th century, stationed at nearby Camp Grayling. Private Conroy died of pneumonia in 1927, while Private Laine drowned in Frog Lake in 1939, just two months before Germany’s invasion of Poland.
