This cemetery is located at 3607 Pearl Rd. (when traveling there, look for the exits for Pearl Rd. and also for Brooklyn signs, as the area is still referred to as Brooklyn/Brooklyn Heights. It was established in 1876 and was originally part of 102 acre farm of Titus Brainard. The Brainard/Foster/Fish families were the first settlers (1812) of this area. James and Ebenezer Fish Jr., walked the entire way form Groton, CT. They settled in what became the Village of Brooklyn, which later became part of the city of Cleveland. Both Administration Building and the stone chapel are National Hisitric Buildings.The most recent update to this page made on 2 Feb., 2007.
