Strong Family Donates Land For Burial Park In 1822
April 1, 1822, John Stoughton Strong and his wife Tamer donated land to city officials for what was to be used as a cemetery, as well as common grounds and space for community buildings. A link to a reproduction of the transfer document officially creating Strongsville Cemetery can be found online.
“Section A” of the cemetery holds some of the most historic headstones and markers from early settlers. The area consists of 17 rows. For details and headstone inscriptions, click here.
The cemetery is maintained and operated by the City of Strongsville service department. Kotecki Family Memorials is an official headstone and marker designer to the cemetery.
