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."

Happy Fourth of July, 2010!! 

I'm taking a moment to remember and honor my Revolutionary War ancestor: the Rev. Jeremiah Duvall who was buried at the Duvall Cemetery in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. 

If you have a Revolutionary War ancestor, today is a great day to post a memorial on Find A Grave for him, or add a note to his memorial if is already posted.
