"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 North Kirtland Cemetery, Kirtland, Lake County, Ohio

The Lake County Genealogical Society has posted online an extensive historical account of the North Kirtland Cemetery.  I think you might find its history quite interesting.
