"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."

Mark Morton's Cemetery Preservation Workshop - RESCHEDULED due to weather


"Mark Morton’s advanced cemetery workshop in Harmar Cemetery this coming Saturday, May 10th, will have to be rescheduled to the “rain date” due to the impending weather. In addition to personal safety concerns of the participants, Mark points out that so much of the success of this type of work largely depends on the work area and materials being dry. Rain and storms are predicted for both Friday and Saturday in Marietta."

WHEN: May 24, 2014, from 9AM - 4PM with a one hour lunch break (lunch not provided).
