More About Interments At Fort Mackinac

From Historic Mackinac:...:

There are undoubtedly in the War Department records showing all the interments but from such sources as we are able to draw on we can state that with the exception of two sailors who were drowned off this port in a wrecked steamer one of whom was a soldier in the Civil War no burials have been made in this cemetery except officers and enlisted men serving at Fort Mackinac and their families.

There are 142 interments in the cemetery 72 known and 70 unknown. Of the known interments seven are of Commissioned officers among them being Col Sellers Capt Clitz and Major Gaskill.

Was Captain Clitz's body moved?
