***Much of Camden Township burial information is online at        At the website go to Find a Cemetery (on the right side of the page.) Then Ohio, Lorain County, & then Camden Cemetery. A name can be entered & information is usually accurate. It has photos of headstones if there is one & obits, death cert. or historical notes at times. They copied our burial book & added that information.  It is a volunteer organization.  They have recorded many cemeteries in the county.  We have added information to our burial book from their website. There are differences from our information & we hope to correct them in the future.


We appreciate any additional birth and death dates you might have or family relationships that might help us locate very old burials in the correct lots in the cemetery. We also need copies of deeds from a long period when the township did not keep a copy.  Possibly the '30s thru the 60's.  They only recorded a name & lot number.
