In Reply to: Lack of info for Woodland Cemetary and other recor by Debbie Maupin of 2633

I to have relatives buried in Woodland Cemetary. When I went looking for information about them I was told that the books were moved to Monroe cemetary because Woodland cemary has been broken into so many times. The office at Monroe cemtary mabe able to help you. I also found that there was a baby at the cemtary which I knew nothing about but later found out that it was buried at the top of one of the other graves. also found out that if i did not ask questions at the office and he did not look into the book I would of never know it. There was nothing on the grave stone. Woodland cemetary is also made up of several graves that were orginaly at the cemtary that was on public square under the bank. People were moved to many other cemtaries woodland and erie st cemetary being the two that was the closest. it is wise to fine out when the office is open at monroe cemetary and go down there and look at the books. the man was vary helpful. It also helps to know names and aprox. dates. The books not only tell you where in the cemetary a person is buried. when they died, who bought the plot(which leads to other friends or relatives), what they died from. and if any who they are buried with. Also ask if they are buried on top of any one or if some one in the grave with them. Many times at woodland cemetary people were buried on top of each other and babied were buried at the top or foot of a grave. Hope this helps. I also wrote a letter to Monroe cemetary with sase and got a reply on dates. names, and who bought the plot.
Also the archives on Franklin ave near W. 25th has information on deaths and burials in Cleveland which may help. It gave me information on my Uncle that was buried in erie cemtary and was moved from another cemetary in Cleveland.
