Scranton Road Cemetery, Cleveland, Ohio

Scranton Road Cemetery, Cleveland, Ohio Author: Cynthia Turk
… Introduction, Inscriptions, Interments. Scranton Road Cemetery, the oldest west side cemetery, is also known as North Brooklyn Cemetery. Since about 1812 it has served what is now known as the Tremont and Clark-Fulton Neighborhoods in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Its interees include some of the west side’s earliest settlers as well as a large number of German immigrants. This book includes a history of the cemetery; complete lot and tier maps indicating all known burial locations; 929 gravestone inscription readings in row order; a German inscription translation guide; an index to the lot cards containing 2,740 names; and a composite interment record (originally intended to replace burned registers) of 4,983 persons. The composite record comes from a large number of sources, painstakingly extracted from death records; church, cemetery, and city records; deeds and obituaries. The resulting table includes (when known) name, dates of death and interment, address, birth date/age, cause of death, nativity, block-lot/tier-grave numbers, undertaker, and a variety of remarks including physician, relationships from stones, etc. It also includes the sources for each record. This book is an important source of burial information for west side Germans, especially since most of the cemetery’s records are no longer available. If you are lucky enough to visit this quaint neighborhood cemetery, this book will ease navigation among your ancestors there.
