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."

Spotlighting Iraq War Veteran - Eric Michael Barnes

Click on title to link to the "Findagrave.com" memorial for Airman First Class Eric Michael Barnes buried at Elmwood Cemetery in Lorain, Ohio.

Airman Barnes is buried near my parents' gravesite.  Whenever I visit Elmwood, I now take a few moments to walk up and visit Eric and thank him for his sacrifice for his country and ask God to keep him in His care always. 

I like to think Eric continues to watch out for those around him and know my parents are in safe company with him nearby.
