Monroe Center Cemetery

Actually, this cemetery doesn't have a name.  It is located near Monroe Center and someone called it Monroe Center for location purposes.  I found no one who knew if it actually had a name.
This is a small cemetery approximately 1/4 mile South of Route 84 on Route 7 in Monroe Township which is just South of Conneaut.  Monroe Township has a Conneaut, Ohio zip code.

Click on this picture to get the pictures of the stones in this cemetery.

I took 3 pictures to get a full view.  It is a little rough but it works.
My husband helped me take the pictures of stones.  This is his FIRST experience at helping me with this website.  YESS!!!!
The cemetery has been through a lot of wear and tear.  Stones are falling over and broken, that is the ones that haven't been stolen or just plain thrown in the bushes because no one knew where to put them.
Someone read part of the stones but not all of them.  That list is kept at the Conneaut Public Library.  I am in the process of re-reading them and I have found a lot that the other person didn't list.  On the other hand, there are names on that other person's list that cannot be found in the cemetery.  They may be the ones that were cast aside and are partially buried or they could be the ones that vandals have stolen.  Maybe they are part of the stones that are illegible at this time.
Come back soon to see the updated version of this list.  I have to wait for a nice sunny day to get the best results of the readings.  I will take a few non-acidic things with me to try to get better readings, also.  I have found that plain dirt or potting soil works on the stones that are laying down or leaning back.
The names that are in CAPS are the names that can't be found but are from the Book at the Library.  This also may change after the stones are re-read.
I will be re-taking pictures of the stones that are photographable until I get the best ones I can.  I will also photograph the whole cemetery as taken from the road.  I will put numbers on the picture to show where the graves are located.
Good Luck in your searches....
