"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 the Pricetown Cemetery, Newton Falls, Trumbull County, Ohio

On June 18, 2013, a story was published online on the "Tribtoday.com" website that was written by Bob Coupland about the Pricetown Cemetery.  It describes how the members of the Newton Falls Cemetery Association and the Pricetown United Methodist Church combined their efforts to restore the Pricetown Cemetery

The story also focuses on the fate of the gravestone for Rev. James Boyd discovered just laying on the ground at the Pricetown Cemetery.

Here is a picture of the gravestone for Rev. James Boyd that was cleaned and put back up in a new base.

Currently, 72 interments are listed for the Pricetown Cemetery on "Find A Grave."
