Exploring Almost Forgotten Gravesites in the Great State of Ohio

Dedicated to cemetery preservation in the great state of Ohio

"A cemetery may be considered as abandoned when all or practically all of the bodies have been Removed therefrom and no bodies have been buried therein for a great many years, and the cemetery has been so long neglected as entirely to lose its identity as such, and is no longer known, recognized and respected by the public as a cemetery. 1953 OAG 2978."

Lakewood Park Cemetery - Rocky River, Cuyahoga County, Ohio Update

Expressing my appreciation to Dawn Bleyle Luehrs and Robert John Luehrs for contacting me with additional information about their Schmitt and Geiger relatives that I had posted on the web site "Findagrave.com" in response to photo requests.

This is one example of how "FAG" - "Findagrave.com" - can work in multiple ways when you are searching for death information of relatives and ancestors. It is my favorite memorial site and it is growing daily!

Below is the information provided by Dawn and Robert:

"Florence Bertha SCHMITT [20 Mar 1889 Cleveland, Cuyahoga, Ohio - 10 Jan 1974 Lakewood, Cuyahoga, Ohio] is my husband Robert John Luehr's great grandmother.
Florence married Harry William GEIGER [9 Oct 1888 Parma, Cuyahoga, Ohio - Feb 1946 Cuyahoga, Ohio].

Florence and Harry's daughter Ruth Marguerite GEIGER married my husband Robert's grandfather Frederick Urban LUEHRS.

Florence and Harry's son, Harry Donald GEIGER [17 Apr 1919 Lakewood, Cuyahoga, Ohio - 6 Apr 1934 Lakewood, Cuyahoga, Ohio] who is interred at Lakewood Park Cemetery with his parents, died at the age of 14 years, 11 months, and 19 days, after being struck by an auto while skating on a public road on 5 Apr 1934."
