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."

Random Views of Calvary Cemetery in Lorain, Ohio

Sharing photographs taken on September 9, 2012 at the Calvary Cemetery in Lorain, Ohio.   

Currently, there are 3,050 interments posted for the Calvary Cemetery on "Find A Grave." 

 Two Rows of praying angels
 Stammitti Mausoleum
 Longer shot view of larger monuments which include a partial view of the Szczepankiewicz family stone to the right.  My great uncle was Antoni Szczepankiewicz.   

The most prominent monument stands in the front with its two guardian angels overlooking matching ceramic medallion photographs for Salvatore and Maria Buemi on the stone's front.  An ornate carved crucifix stands atop the center of this beautiful unique monument.

The Pajor Family Monument for Ferdinand D., Peter J. and Victor L. Pajor that overlooks the roadway at the end of a row of older monuments.
