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."

Featuring "Carole Murray's Photography" - Lake View Cemetery, Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Click on title to access the Carole Murray Photography's "smugmug.com" site and her work devoted exclusively to Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland on this particular link.  Note, you'll see many of the photographs are shown in black and white.  Per Carole, they are all also available in color.
Quoting from Carole:
"We just went there a week or so ago, and I still have a lot to add from that trip. Plus, now that the nice weather is (hopefully) on it's way, I should be out and about taking more photos. If they're in Cuyahoga County, I'll probably add them to that gallery."

"These are photos we've taken of some of the graves in Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio, along with some of the statues and monuments. We've tried to put them in alphabetic order -- unless a person is buried with a particular family.
Then we went ahead and put the photo with those family photos."
