In this small cemetery are buried members of a pioneer family that settled this land in the 1820's. Many descendants still live in this area. Here lies Peter Wilhelm, who in 1827 or 1829 acquired Private Claim 49, an old French ribbon farm whose origins dated back into the 1700's. This land was part of that farm. Here are buried Peter's father, Nicholas, progenitor of the Wilhelm family in the United States; Peter's wife Salome; their son, Peter, Jr., and their grand-daughter, Adeline Reves. Others are buried here, but their names are now unknown. Since 1948 this site has been maintained by Melvindale as a historic site, possibly the oldest in the immediate vicinity of Detroit unchanged from its original use.
