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."

Spotlighting the Marion Cemetery Association - Marion, Ohio

Click on title to link to the Marion Cemetery Association's website; specifically, their page about the gravestone restoration work offered by the Association for markers in need of cleaning at the Marion Cemetery. 
I think this is the first time I have come across gravestone restoration work offered directly by a cemetery.  It is definitely a valuable service that other cemeteries should consider important and make available to their customers too. 
On Find A Grave, currently there are 3,367 memorials posted for the Marion Cemetery.
