Woodland Cemetery Cleveland Looking for Photographs

21 Oct

Woodland Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio where William and Margaret Hudson are buried, along with two of Benjamin Walker Ellison’s children, is looking for photographs of people interred there for inclusion in an “Images of… Woodland Cemetery” book, published by Arcadia Publishing.

William Hudson was Benjamin Walker Ellison’s step-father and Margaret Hudson his mother. Margaret’s birth family name was Cooper and she was from Baildon, Yorkshire, England as was William Hudson.

I do not have any photographs of William or Margaret.

Below is the information from Woodland Cemetery Foundation on how you can contribute a photograph of your ancestor (s) buried there. Just click on the link.

The deadline for submissions is December 15, 2011.

Woodland Cemetery Restoration Efforts

9 Aug

The Woodland Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio where Margaret Cooper Ellison Hudson and her husband William Hudson are buried is in dire need of restoration in certain areas, including a mausoleum that has fallen down and is in threat of city removal.

Also buried with Margaret and William Hudson are two of Benjamin Walker Ellison’s infant children, a boy and girl. All of the graves are unmarked, with no grave markers or tombstones.

The Woodland Cemetery is a historic cemetery and worthy of our efforts and funds to preserve it for the future. Won’t you consider making a tax-deductible donation in honor of Margaret and William Hudson? Or in honor of your ancestors?

87,794 people are buried at Woodland Cemetery, beginning in 1853.
