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."

Gilboa Cemetery - Paint Township - Highland County, Ohio - New Book published by Marianna Kerns Morgan

Marianna Kerns Morgan of Chillicothe, Ohio has published a new book entitled:

"GILBOA CEMETERY - A Story of the Lives, the Accomplishments, the Final Resting Place of Many of the Early Settlers of Paint Twp., Highland Co., Ohio, and Descendants"

Marianna Morgan's new "Gilboa Cemetery" book's title is befitting of the detailed descriptions and photographs found on every page of this one-of-a-kind publication containing 336 pages with twelve-page full name index.
I can personally say that in all my years of reading cemetery inscriptions publications and viewing internet sites offering burial information, the format and in-depth biographies offered in Marianna's "Gilboa Cemetery" book surpasses any I've ever seen.
Congratulations Marianna, on "Gilboa Cemetery"!
