"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."

Update on "Adopt-A-Marker" Program at the Catholic Cemeteries Association of the Cleveland Catholic Diocese


I have recently been informed by Mr. Scott Casper, Director of Family Services at the Catholic Cemeteries Association, that the "Adopt-A-Marker" Program is being put on hold at this time.  He said to check the website for any further updates.  

Thus, the images regarding this program that I had posted on this blog have been removed.

Thank you.
