Well, okay, maybe dignitaries is pushing it some. But I found it interesting how many family names in Holton Oakwood Cemetery were of citizens prominent enough to have area roads named after them in Muskegon county. Which does make sense; after all, Holton is in Muskegon county.
And given the lumbering background of Muskegon county especially, it makes perfect sense that one of those families interred there would be the Ryerson family.
One of our patrons, while I was employed at the local library, was very interested in the Ryerson family. They have a library in Grand Rapids named after them. They were prominent lumbermen and were later influential in the Chicago area.
Ruprecht is a small road nearby. I wonder if it was named for Edward F, or a relative.
