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."

Additional notes from Ralph L. Coleman, Jr. regarding Isaac McClung:

"There is only one Isaac McClung in the records for Maple Grove Cemetery. He is not distinguished by a Sr. or Jr.

He is buried in Square 18, Lot 2, Grave 2. In the same lot are:

Lucy McClung, Square 18, Lot 2, Grave 1, "1991" as additional information.

Lebanon McClung, Square 18, Lot 2, Grave 3, no additional information.

Infant of Lebanon McClung, Square 18, Lot 2, Grave 4, no additional information.

There are no known records for Freeman Funeral Home for the period 1910-early 1926, so I have not way of ascertaining if this is the Isaac McClung, Jr., you discussed in your e-mail."
