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."

Index to Old Cemeteries in Fayette County, Ohio

Click on title to access the current listing of cemeteries on "Find A Grave" for Fayette County, Ohio. 

**Please note, on the two-page list below, #46 is "Limes Cemetery, Greenfield-Sabina Pike, 1/2 in Highland and 1/2 in Fayette County."

Limes Cemetery is also known as Sheep Pen or Gustin Cemetery for Highland County. 

The Highland County Auditor's Office shows Sheep Pen located on "East Martinsburg Road" (County Road 98), which is the Greenfield-Sabina Road once you cross over into Fayette County, Ohio.)

Note, I have also added below on this blog, as a permanent image, the Plat Map for Sheep Pen Cemetery. 

It was recorded in Fayette County, Ohio and listed with the name "Old Limes Cemetery".   More veterans were buried there than only the two that are shown.
