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."

Quaker (Friends) Cemetery records on-line on the North Lewisburg, Champaign County, Ohio website

Click on title to link to the records for the Quaker (Friends) Cemetery that I have compiled regarding the burials at this inactive cemetery in North Lewisburg, Ohio.

Below is an almost unreadable stone at the Friends Cemetery for Lydia A. Fell Brown, wife of Edwin J. Brown.  She was born July 31, 1834 and died June 11, 1863, per a D. A. R. tombstone reading, however, Fell family records have a date of death of June 11, 1866.  More cleaning, and possibly some limited chalking over the dates needs to be done to further verify the year.
