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."

Blickenstaff Cemetery (AKA Karns Cemetery) - Monroe Township, Miami County, Ohio

Click on title to access a wonderful website for the Blickenstaff (AKA Karns) Cemetery. 
Some of the information provided includes a history of the cemetery and biographical information about some of the early local residents. 
Also, many stone readings and photos are provided. 
The site was last updated September 5, 2009

Abstracted from the website:
"Professional stone restorationists Helen Wildermuth and Mark Davis from Indiana were employed and in August of 2007 began several days of work cleaning, repairing and resetting the markers. Using only water and special plastic brushes mounted on drills, they cleaned each marker revealing in most cases beautiful, white Italian marble."
