Elsie Historical Society

Many of our ancestors ignored county and township borders when it came to family, friends, places of worship, or their favorite place to do business. Elsie, Clinton County, Michigan is so close to Elba Twp., Gratiot County that you could say it overlaps, in that, many people from Bannister are buried in Clinton County. Elsie has two cemeteries.
