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."

June 26, 2007 - Urbana Daily Citizen, Urbana, Ohio - story about the students of Amanda Goodwin's 8th grade class and their field trip to the Butcher Cemterey in North Lewisburg. Every year Amanda is taking her class to continue their clean up efforts at Butcher (AKA Walnut Grove) Cemetery which was almost forgotten except by a few who cared to take time to do mowing and clean up of debris and tall weeds.
