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."

Here is a partial quotation from his welcome page:

I was born in Ross County Ohio and grew up in Highland County.
Most of my ancestry was located in Fayette, Highland, and Ross Counties. This website will deal primarily with those counties, as well as others as the generations spread out.
Like others, my ancestors came from Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and just about everywhere.
My great-grandmother, Oma Syferd, was born in Pendleton County Virginia (now West Virginia in 1854, and by 1860 they were living in Fayette County Ohio.
She passed away shortly after the birth of my grandfather's sister who was born about 1883.
"I recorded some grave sites in Ross County last spring, specifically the graves in the Wilson Cemetery on Dewey Creek Road.
Also, my grandfather Charles Mack Wilson and some others were originally buried in the Satchel Cemetery in Lyndon, Ohio, but subsequent to 1996, my previous visit, they were moved to South Salem Cemetery."

"The following people were moved:
Mack Wilson and his wife Addie Wilson
Joseph H Wilson, and wife Amazony Wilson
Alice Jo McDonald
Don't know why they were moved."
