  1. Can someone tell me where the statue of Jesus holding an angel can be found cause I drove around the cemetery for about 90 minutes and could not locate it! I am thinking of going back when it’s light out to locate the statue

    • Check with the main office. I believe there is a section in the cemetery that is specifically for children. This could be where the article refers to.

  2. I was with my friend at night time and a saw a kid crying near the woods, I thought the kid was lost but when I was walking towards the child my friend yelled my name. I looked to see what my friend had wanted to tell me and she had asked what I was doing. Confused I turned to tell her about the child crying and the kid was gone. Considering it was dark out there was a huge possibility that it was just a lost child but it was stil creepy. It was also the place my cousin was buried and originally I went to visit him but got distracted.

  3. This photo was taken in May 2016 after a car accident at Hope Cemetery. It is in front of the Marcy Mausoleum. You can clearly see a woman top right of the photo dressed in turn of the century clothing looking on the scene. There are also about four other “white” shadows around the car. Does anyone know anything about the Marcy family ?
