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."

I know I can safely say I speak for many when I state that Memorial Day is every day when we remember those who have left us and we have lost. On Memorial Day we especially pause to thank those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us and dedicate the day to their memory. Thank you for letting me take some extra time to thank them. Thank you.
