UPDATE: Randy Bergdorf, Archivist/Historian at the Peninsula Library and Historical Society,
submitted information to the Summit County chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society in 1996. Mr Bergdorf says it has always been his
understanding that the Everett and Chamberlin cemeteries were one and the same. He also
submitted a photocopy of a page marked "Book C, pg 351, Boston Twp Proceedings" which states:
"Boston Township Janr 27th 1898 - Permission was granted this day by the Board of Health to
Samuel MEIRS to have the remains of his Mother Jane MEIRS and his uncle Will DAVIS
removed from Everett Cemetary to Cedar Grove Cemetary at Peninsula. Signed John Blackburn?, H. B. Rithchie, Trustees"
"Boston Tp Janr 29th 1898 - At a meeting of the Board of Health John Blackburn, H. B. Ritchie. Permission was granted to R. W. CHAMBERLIN to have the remains of the CHAMBERLIN familiy now in Everett Cemetery removed to Cedar Grove Cemetary Peninsula."
