This cemetery is located about � mile west of the intersection of State Road 87 and Riverview Road on Route 87. A small lane leads from Route 87 north over a curb and through a wooded area. The cemetery is about � mile from the main road at the end of the lane.

The land for the cemetery was originally owned by Serenus Burnett, one of the first settlers of Orange Township. What began as a family graveyard eventually expanded to include burials from the entire neighborhood. The government of Orange Township now has responsibility for the burial ground. The cemetery has at least 65 burials and consists of 0.4 acres.

This survey was completed in June of 1993 by the families of W. Ray Luce and Loretta Luce Evans. The earliest grave was that of Charles Burnet who died 3 Sep 1838. Charles was Serenus' grandson. The second grave was that of Henry Luse in 1843. Henry was the son of Sarah Burnett Luse, Serenus' sister.

Some stones in the cemetery are broken or unreadable. Occasionally there is a large stone with information on both husband and wife. Beside the large stone are smaller stones named father and mother. Those smaller stones were not included in this inventory.

In the corner of the cemetery is a large obelisk with birth and death information on the family of Jesse Hall Luse and his wife, Sylphina Hamblin Hanchett Luse. Small stones beside the obelisk show where these people are buried. Ethel Luse Schultz' name appears on the obelisk, but there is no small stone for her. Family sources say that she is buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Chagrin Falls next to her husband.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
