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."

Admiral Noble Edward Irwin's burial location has been found!

My thanks to Cindy Hackett at the public library in Annapolis, Maryland who so kindly sent information to me that identifies the burial location of Admiral Noble E. Irwin, his wife, Elma, and her parents Captain John Alexander Norris and Zoe (Doviller) Norris.  

Click on title to link to Admiral Irwin's memorial posted on "Find A Grave" with relationship links to his wife, and his parents and maternal grandmother. 
I was not able to link him to his daughter, Phyllis Irwin Lockwood, however, information is provided on his memorial to locate her and her husband, Charles A. Lockwood, Jr., on "Find A Grave."
