Saturday morning, before I headed over to Johnston, Ohio for Bob and Sheila's wedding, I visited Lake View Cemetery
to see if I could find a few ancestors. First, a big thank you to Anita at the Lake View office, who was kind enough to look up the gravesites for me. It was, appropriately enough, a windy and damp morning, with rain trying to fall and the temperatures in the brisk range. Beautiful weather. I remember what comes next, and it's white - so I don't miss the Ohio weather too much.
This is a picture of Section 5 plot 1 in Lakeview Cemetery. The corner of this section is for Justice David K. Cartter and his family. The headstones are, from left to right, his son Lt. David K. Cartter, the Judge, and the Judge's wife, Nancy Hanford Cartter.
As mentioned earlier, Lt. Cartter died of Typhoid Fever while at Ft. Scott, Kansas during the Civil War.
This is a closeup of the Judge's headstone.
A closeup of his wife's headstone.
Another view of the Cartter memorial.
After I took the pictures of the headstones, I took a tour of the Jeptha Wade Chapel. This building was designed and built by the grandson of Jeptha Wade as a memorial to the elder. The inside was designed and installed by Louis Comfort Tiffany (yes, that
Tiffany) and depicts the Old and New Testaments on either wall, with the Glorious Resurrection in the center window. The two bronze doors were cast in Cleveland and each one weighs two tons, yet they are so well balanced they can be opened or shut with one hand.
