"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."

Spotlighting James Musson buried at the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio -- Sharing Photographs of Diana Goode's Unearthed Gravestones

"Find A Grave" contributor

Quoting Diana Goodes:
"James Musson (this stone was laying face down, half covered, next to his wife Margaret.) 2 people from the local historical society were with us and documented the location when we flipped it over.  They then had us place it back, 
        face down, until they could properly restore it."
