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."

Featuring "Find A Grave" Contributor Gene Wilt of Fayette County, Ohio

I wish to post something a bit different today on my blog. 

I am dedicating this post along with my own thank you to a kind and helpful "Find A Grave" contributor who has, to date, taken 243 volunteer photos. 

He is Gene Wilt of Fayette County, Ohio. 

Click on title to be linked to Gene's profile page on "Find A Grave" and read more about him and his contributions. 

Gene is among thousands of "Find A Grave" contributors who have made locating the final resting places of our relatives and ancestors much quickier and easier.

His dedication to activities like walking his local cemeteries and photographing both newer monuments and fraile and faded flat markers alike has meant someone living a great distance away can have a virtual view of what their ancestor's grave monument or marker looks like. 

The gravestone photographs help make the online memorials more meaningful and add a visual connection.

Thank you, Gene, for all of your help with my photo requests in Fayette County. 

You have done a great job with your photography work and have promptly responded to my photo requests every time!

AND, 

Merry Christmas to everyone who has contributed in some way on the website "Find A Grave"!!!
