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."

Pittsfield, Lorain County, Ohio Blog Regarding Cemetery Restoration Volunteer News

The following information is found on the Pittsfield Township, Lorain County, Ohio Blog in 2009:

"March/April Question"
04/13/09 - To All Current and Potential Cemetery Restoration Volunteers: As the weather improves and gets warmer, I hope to continue the cemetery restoration project that we started last year. We still have considerable work to do in the East Cemetery, and then we can proceed to the South Cemetery. Last year we scheduled our work sessions for every Thursday morning from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 Noon. This year I would like to also hold some sessions on possibly Saturday morning, or some week day evening. This would allow those of you who work during the day to participate in the project.
Anyone who would like to help us and has a preference as to when they are available, please let me know.
Thank you, Ralph Hayes at Hayes@kellnet.com
