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 love cemeteries! I walk my area cemeteries frequently.

If you see a name I have added, chances are that I have a photo to go with the name. I rarely will add a name without having the grave photo already taken.
If you have corrections and/or additions, please let me know. I will do all I can to make the page as correct as possible. Also, I will be more than happy to transfer ownership if I have added your family!"

Let me know what I can do to help you.

I continue to be amazed at how helpful "Findagrave.com" can be!  With the newer added features of family links for adding "FAG" memorial numbers of parents, spouses, and children to a person's memorial, a researcher can "click on" literally whole families from parent to child to spouse regarless of the actual burial location.

The stone is no longer at the original burial site, however. 
Per the D.A.R. stone reading records done in 1959:
