Lorain County,

Charleston Cemetery was known as The Old Bank Street Cemetery. Where the cemetery exists right known, that part of 6th St. was called Polk St., the other half was called Bank Street.
Charleston Cemetery is between 6th St., and 7th St., halfway between Oberlin Ave., and Hamilton St.. On 15th Sept. 1828, Quartus Gilmore, Addison Tracey and Roswell Crocker, trustees of Black River Township, paid a $1.00 to Hiram Messenger for 90 square rods of land to be used by all the inhabitants of the township as a burying ground. The few stones now remaining mark burials between 1840 through 1879.
