Hi Pamela,
My answer for you is it's not always easy but...It can be done. Sometimes I just go and start looking for a stone by walking and taking along a helper such as my husband or one of my sons but if it's a larger cemetery such as Hillside or Oakwood in Warren I would do one of two things. First, if you can call the cemetery office and they can look it up as far as section number, lot number and get a better idea of where it might be. I don't remember if Hillside has an office or not but if they don't it might be listed as to who has the responsibility of caring for it somewhere online. Sometimes the township offices are the ones to call. Now if the grave you are looking for is an older one, before (I think) it's 1953, you can get that information from the Trumbull County Cemetery book. Some of the cemeteries have a copy of the book but there is a copy of it at the Warren library. After 1953 you HAVE to check with the office if you aren't sure if a person is buried in that cemetery or not. I have a friend who has her own copy of the cemetery book that contains all the Trumbull County cemetery burials before 1953, (I'll check with her for this date but that seems to be what's on my mind) Sorry I'm really tired today... One thing the book doesn't tell you is the section and lot number. It sometimes lists the parents and the spouses of the person so that's helpful if you don't know that already.
I'll check about the date and if you have an earlier date I can have her look it up for you and at least verify that they are in Hillside.
