490 Niagara Avenue , Put-in-Bay, OH 43456

The island has two cemeteries, Crown Hill being the older one, often referred to as "the island cemetery" in the exhibits at the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society museum. The historical society also had a valuable resource - a map of the cemetery with the family plots marked out and the name of the plot owner, other people known to be buried in the plot, and the others' relationship to the owner. The map makes the cemetery look less than full, but the historical society museum hostess says that the unmapped plots are full as well - of the unidentified bodies that washed up on the island shores. The island weather has not been particularly kind to the old stones in this cemetery, and a large proportion of them are unreadable.
