Some Personal Photographs From Northeastern Ohio

The following are some personal photographs from my travels around northeastern Ohio. My friends on Facebook have been able to view these for months, but I’m sharing these for the world at large.

This is the grave marker of Charles Grandison Finney at Oberlin, Ohio. His grave is surrounded by the graves of his wife and children. It is visible from the road through the cemetery, though the inscription is not. The inscription reads, with a definite reference to Joshua 1:9, “The Lord our God be with us as He was with our fathers; let Him not leave us, nor forsake us.”

This is the grave marker of Elliott Ness and his family at Lakeview Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio. Though he has been gone for half a century, it is noteworthy how many continue to leave decorations and commemorations at his graveside.

This is the grave marker of John D. Rockefeller and his family in Lakeview Cemetery, Cleveland, Ohio. How much did he leave behind? All of it.

This is the incomparable stained glass window, The Flight of Souls, by Louis Comfort Tiffany, in Wade Chapel, Lakeview Cemetery, Cleveland, Ohio. The whole chapel is designed to place the focus on the risen Christ at the center of the window and his empty tomb, and the path to him as the resurrection and the life.
