"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. 1953 OAG 2978."

Winfield Scott Limes (1875 - 1959) - Find A Grave Memorial

Sharing this "Find A Grave" memorial for my grandfather whose 139th birthday is today.  I am fortunate to remember him from childhood, and now getting to know more about him after researching his life long career spent with the Wood Wire & Metal Lathers' International Union.
