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 in Marion, Ohio

Click on title to link to the Marion Cemetery Association's website. 
This is a wonderful and unique cemetery website which also includes fascinating information about Peter Viyuk under the title: "Ukrainian Immigrant’s Renderings of the Dead are for the Living". 
I'm sure you will enjoy viewing some of his marvelous life-like etchings in granite.
