Exploring Almost Forgotten Gravesites in the Great State of Ohio

Dedicated to cemetery preservation in the great state of Ohio

"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."

"Could Graveyard Across the Street from Progressive Field Play a Role in World Series?"

Sharing a link to a timely story that connects the Erie Street Cemetery across from Progressive Field in Cleveland, to the outcome of upcoming World Series games -- if the legend is true.  

It is nicely written by Rick Uldricks and appears on the "Cleveland Patch" website this morning, October 25, 2016 - the day that this historic World Series match up between the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs begins.  

We hear a lot of stories about the curses that have prevented sports teams from winning, and this one is quite chilling!  We hope that the Tribe will debunk it starting tonight!  

Joc-O-Sot is featured in this news story.  He is among those who are on the list of famous people interred at the Erie Street Cemetery.  

We hope he rests in peace -- unless it is to haunt the Chicago Cubs of course!
