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."

News story regarding Johnson's Corners Cemetery - Norton Township - Summit County Genealogical Society looking for help to improve conditions at Johnson's Corners Cemetery

Click on link to access a story that was posted on the website of "Ohio.com" on June 1, 2009 by 'Beacon Journal' staff writer, Linda Golz, announcing a plea for help by members of the Summit County Genealogical Society to restore and improve the conditions at the Johnson's Corners Cemetery. 

Contact information for "any group interested in helping preserve Johnson's Corners Cemetery should e-mail cemeteryscogs@yahoo.com."
I am hoping a local group has stepped up to help the Summit County Genealogical Society with their goals with regards to the Johnson's Corners Cemetery and other such cemeteries in deteriorated conditions that are facing the same unfortunate fate in Summit County, Ohio.
