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."

New Marker at Martha Hitler Park in Washington Township, Pickaway County, Ohio

Click on title to link to the Pickaway County, Ohio Park District's site and a story they featured that first appeard in the "Circleville Herald" on July 2, 2009 about the installation of a new and extraordinarily large granite marker at the Martha Hitler Park. 

The story goes on to relate that the Hitler family (no relation at all to Adolf Hitler!) were early settlers in Pickaway County.  There is also a Hitler-Ludwig Cemetery south of Circleville.
