Erie Street Cemetery

Erie Street Cemetery was acquired in September 1825, by Leonard Case, Trustee and on the 29th day of March, 1826, Leonard and his wife, Elizabeth Case, conveyed the land by quit-claim to the village of Cleveland. This cemetery is right in front of Jacobs Field home of baseball Cleveland Indians.
On tombstone will tell you the story who was buried on it. And I think one of the beautiful under tree grave in this place. Unfortunately, as with most of urban cemeteries many of Erie Street's graves have succumbed to vandalism and elements.

Not a bad life, lucky lasting so long before succumbing to an epidemic. Nice photo.

Beautiful tombstone. It's quite surprising for me to read these words about who is burried here: in France, only birth and death dates are mentionned on the graves.

Too bad about the vandalism, I have seen many urban cemeteries here with the same problem (especially Paris). But the grave is wonderful, and to be so legible for an old headstone is amazing.

This is a genealogist's dream, to find a headstone with so much valuable information.

A great history lesson and very personal. I find that the older tombstones are the most interesting, and this one illustrates that nicely!

This beautiful stone appears to be a secondary marker erected long after the 1849 burial date, perhaps put in place by descendants or a city historical society. By style, I'd guess it was made in the 1920s or 30s. I note two smaller markers that may be older. Cool choice for our theme day!

Very nice picture.
I like also the name "Gamaliel Fenton".
It seems to be a elf name as in Lord of the rings.

Happy theme day !
