In Reply to: Warren State Hospital Cemetery by Kristy Hammond of 486

I don't believe there is a cemetery on the grounds. Most patients were interred in the communities from whence they came. There is a cemetery (Wetmore) in North Warren, not far from the state hospital grounds. Also, I have been told that a number of patients were buried in an old cemetery in Starbrick. There is a "paupers" section at the Oakland Cemetery on the south side of Warren - and there is a "paupers" cemetery just off of Fifth Street in Warren - I think on Beaty St., which is almost at the city limits, heading east on Fifth.Was this a family paid burial, or at state expense? That would make a difference in where she was buried.

What sort of records do you have? That might help to locate where she is buried.
