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."

Cemeteries of Bloom Township, Fairfield County, Ohio

My thanks to Shelly Hallard-Beckham for granting permission to post a link to the website "Cemeteries of Bloom Township, Fairfield County, Ohio."

Sharing Shelly's response to my request:
"I know of no current or future restoration in the works, however, I am just a long-time (over 30 years) researcher who has, for more than 14 years now, concentrated just on a single township in a single county. I guess you COULD call it 'preservation' but as my website explains, unless they are viewing an actual tombstone photo, some of the lists displayed in the cemetery pages provide much more detail than the actual tombstone; i.e. complete date of birth and burial taken from a combination of other records such as probate, obits, funeral records, memory cards, etc."
