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."

Maple Grove Cemetery - Rush Township - Champaign County, Ohio

Read below comment from Ralph Lowell Coleman, Jr. about the "North Lewisburg Cemetery" post card:


Linda,

A very nice treasure! I recognize the spot where the camera probably sat...just west of the "Precinct Vault" and slightly to the north. The view is toward the southeast. There are graves now where we see an open hillside, and where the first few lines of spectators are standing.
