Preservation Guidelines from "
The Association for Gravestone Studies"
"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.
