Conneaut Township Cemeteries

Crane Cemetery

Contributed by Andy Pochatko


Crane Cemetery is a small, inactive cemetery located on Gage Road in Conneaut Township near the Elk Creek Township line. For many years the cemetery had been overgrown with brush. In 1929 an attempt was made by a local 7th/8th grade to restore the cemetery. In the same year two of Cranesville's earliest settlers, Elihu Crane and his wife, Ruth; were removed from this burial ground and were reinterred in Hope Cemetery in Elk Creek Township. In 1997, the brush was cleared as part as the Founder's Day Celebration, which at that time the cemetery was reread. Present state of cemetery is unknown.

The following records are a mixture of readings from July 1958, Wilbur Palmer, date unknown; and from the Founders Day Celebration, August 23, 1997.

To reach the cemetery from Albion, take N Main Street (aka Old Albion Road) to Gage, proceed east. Cemetery is located on the south side of the road on behind a grove of trees on private property. If you reach the curve in the road you have gone too far.
