"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."

Sharing the newspaper story that appeared in the June 22, 2013 edition of the "Urbana Daily Citizen" in Urbana, Champaign County, Ohio that announces Mark Morton's upcoming tombstone restoration presentation program that he held at the North Lewisburg Branch of the Champaign County Library on June 27. 

The library branch is located at the old former Quaker (Friends) Church that is adjacent to the long inactive Friends Cemetery.
