I wonder if someone can help me with some confusing cemetery records for the Bedford Cemetery in Bedford, Cuyahoga County Ohio. Find a Grave has a listing for William L Benjamin who died in 1895, Section 6, Lot 50, gr 6. There is also a listing for Julius Benjamin d. Jan. 1922, in the same plot(Section 6, Lot 50, gr 6). Next to William is his wife, Clara L Benjamin. It's possible that Julius was a son of William and Clara although I haven't been able to find any record of a Julius Benjamin in Ohio. My gut instinct is that Julius is actually Juliette Benjamin. Juliette's death certificate lists her birth date as Jul 1838 death date as 15 Jan 1922, with burial in Bedford. Her husband Lyman Benjamin is also buried in the Bedford Cemetery, along with their son Carl, Carl's wife Carrie and another son Frank. Would anyone know where I could find the Bedford Cemetery records so I could verify the plot information for both Lyman and Julius(or Juliette)?
