"A cemetery may be considered as abandoned when all or practically all of the bodies have been removed therefrom and no
bodies have been buried therein for a great many years, and the cemetery has been so long neglected as entirely to lose its identity
as such, and is no longer known, recognized and respected by the public as a cemetery. 1953 OAG 2978."

"Tour Ohio Cemeteries with YouTube" - Spotlighting the Current Post on the Blog: "Corn and Cotton Genealogy" by Stephanie Pitcher Fishman

Tour Ohio Cemeteries with YouTube

Sharing this wonderful post included with this link to the "YouTube" Video tour of the Pioneer Cemetery in Belmont County, Ohio.  

We can take a further look at the Pioneer Cemetery in Belmont County  Ohio (click on cemetery name) by visiting it on "Find A Grave."  Currently, there are 15 interments listed on "Find A Grave" for the Pioneer Cemetery. 

Excerpted from "Find A Grave":

"Cemetery notes and/or description:
Pioneer Cemetery is located on the south side of Main Street, at the intersection with Center Cross Street, in Morristown, Ohio (Union Township, Belmont County). The coordinates are 40° 3' 46.19" N, 81° 4' 22.03" W.

Pioneer Cemetery, also known as Morristown First Cemetery, is no longer active. It is the final resting place of the founders of Morristown, as well as many Revolutionary War veterans. Most of the gravestones are in great shape for their age, but most do have some damage. The cemetery is very well maintained by the township."
