"Lake View Cemetery...is reached by a beautiful drive on Euclid avenue and also by the East Cleveland street car line. . . . When purchased, the land was a wilderness of rock, stream and woodland. . . . ." — William H. Payne, Cleveland Illustrated: A Pictorial Handbook of the Forest City . . . Together with an Account of its Most Attractive Suburbs (Cleveland: Fairbanks Benedict & Company, 1876), 75–77. Excerpted from the text- www.lakeviewcemeterybook.com

"Captain Louis Germain Deforest was buried on August 24, 1870. It was the first internment at the Lake View Cemetery, and back then it was on the outer edges of the city, a rural location some contended was too far and too inconvenient for many Clevelanders. But within a few years, both the tract of undeveloped land and the roads leading to it were much improved. The distance was no longer considered a challenge for caskets, mourners, or even pleasure-seekers." From the text by Laura Taxel. Photograph- Louise van Clev Strong, Section 13. © Barney Taxel, 2004.
