Lake Road (Brown) Cemetery
Brownhelm Township, Lorain County, Ohio

This abandoned cemetery on Lake Road is about ¼ mile west of Baumhart Rd. In 1994, no stones were left upright, most had become buried under several inches of soil. With diligent prodding in the earth, the following stones were located. This cemetery had Henry Brown's name on the deed. Adjoining burial ground known as Shepard-James Cemetery was combined with the Brown burial plot by Henry Brown into the current cemetery. For further information you may contact Ted Reising.

The following inscriptions are recorded in a previous Lorain County Cemeteries survey, but these stones could not be located (1995). Most of the following inscriptions were recorded by a D.A.R. survey about 1936, but these stones could not be located (1993; 1994; 2003; 2008); it is likely that these headstones have been removed, probably before 1950, and may be unrecoverable.)
