Kelleys Island Cemetery
The Kelleys Island Cemetery is found on Division Street in Kelleys Island, an island in Lake Erie, just north of the Marblehead peninsula. Many members of the Kelley family and Himmelein family are buried in the Kelleys Island Cemetery.
Though now they are privately owned, the Kelley Mansion and Himmelein house can still be seen on the island today.
This monument which honors the Bauman family was created by Sandusky resident Conrad Keim. (Click for an enlarged view. Keim's name is found on the upper right side of the base of the stone.)
The Estes family lot has lovely floral tributes during the summer months.
A listing of inscriptions for the Kelleys Island Cemetery is found online at the U.S. GenWeb Archives. Several items of interest relating to Kelleys Island historical individuals, places, and businesses are featured at the website of the Kelleys Island Historical Association.
