"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."

From Mr. Terry Easton:

"We are in the early stages of planning this year's workshop to be held Sep 14th at the Dick's Creek Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Franklin Township, Warren, OH. There is much to be done in restoring this cemetery. The church at this site was the parent church of the First Presbyterian Church of Middletown.

Dick's Creek Cemetery is one of Warren County's oldest, surviving cemeteries and is the final resting place of seven Revolutionary War veterans and at least two Civil War veterans."
