I walk cemeteries in the tri-county Detroit area for Civil War Vets. I did this cemetery two years ago. It seems that you only listed the Colored troops that were buried up front in the GAR section.
I walked the entire cemetery. I found several more 102nd USCT, a few other USCT regiments (non-Michigan) and even one guy from the 54th Mass Reg. in the rest of the large cemetery. If you are interested I can find my notes and send them to you.
I send my research to Don Harvey's "Michigan in the Civil War" site. This site has tons of Michigan CW info including the 102nd USCT. Beside rosters, unit histories, war-time deaths a message board; they also collect brurial info on all Mi vets. Other states troops are taken and sent to the National site recording all soliders.
