The Washington Street Burying Ground, Painesville

This listing, copied by Becky Falin from a 1956 work of Mary H. Collacott, has now been supplemented with comments from the work of Mrs. Howard Anthony.

The burying ground on Washington Street is now occupied by Harvey High School. This was one of the oldest burying grounds in the area, but fell into neglect in the mid 1800s. Stones were buried in 1874 and 1878 and the high school was later erected on the site. A complete list of burials is not available, but following is a list of some of the gravestones placed underground, and some of the lot owners at the time.

About these lists, Mary H. Collacott wrote, " [These] lists of names were found among the papers left by Simeon Hickok of South Street, Painesville. They were made at the time the stones were laid underground and are not complete, as some of the paper pages on which they were written, crumbled away and some of the writing was not legible."
