The Cemetery Sexton for Charleston Township is Ben Holtz. He can be reached at 207-7407.
The Township Clerk is chartered by the State of Michigan to administer the four cemeteries within Charleston Township: Toad Hollow, Territorial (also known as Lawler Cemetery), Riverside, and Roof Cemetery. Records of burials, ownership deeds, and the like are maintained at the Township Hall and can be viewed by any interested person. Some data is very historical and somewhat unreliable, while newer records have been computerized and are much more reliable for family and genealogical studies.
