Nineteen of the victims of the Ashtabula Train Disaster who were burned beyond recognition were buried in Chestnut Grove Cemetery on January 19th, 1877. A memorial was built above their graves in May of 1895, commemorating the tragedy. Here, apparitions have appeared before those visiting the cemetery. Ghostly forms have been seen near the memorial and walking the pathways around it.

Charles Collins who helped develop the bridge is buried here too and he has been seen weeping into his hands over the loss.
