The Photo Gallery

A collection of photos from the Cincinnati and Hamilton County area, of Wesleyan Cemetery and the individuals buried here.

You are invited to share your photos of Wesleyan Cemetery or of individuals that are buried in the cemetery to add to this gallery. It is my intention, eventually, to link the collected photos to the cemetery burial records, but I need you to help by submitting photos that you have access to.

Click on any of the photos for a larger image.

Grave of Leroy C. Toedt, who died in June, 2001. Aside from the hideous job of covering the grave and lack of any grass seed or sod, the marker is just lying on the surface and the dirt has nearly covered another marker at the foot of the grave.

Headstone of a woman named Manerva(?), who died in 1848. This grave is all the way in the back of the cemetery. There is no section sign on a tree that I could find in this area.
If you look to the right of the tree you will see a stone almost buried in the ground lying flat and it is in terrible shape.

A wider view of the area in the photo above. Notice the many tilted or leaning headstones and grave markers and the poison ivy climbing up the tree in the foreground.

A "map" of Section T, lot 24, graves of the Richmond family.

Note from Cindy: This is the photo that broke my heart. In the plain grassy area just in front of those stones is where my great grandfather's brother, Carl Alonzo Richmond and his wife Mary Jane Setters Richmond are buried. Of course there is no stone on anyone in this area. I have often wondered if Carl's & Mary's stone is one on the side of the building along with others. This section is "T" where they are buried.

A Wesleyan Cemetery building, in very bad repair. The "mess" piled up by it are headstones, whether they were new headstones never placed on the appropriate graves, or older headstones, that have been removed from the grave that they belong with is unclear.

The same building above, note more headstones piled up everywhere and laying along the walk.
