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 "Cemetery Residents" - Augusta Cemetery, Augusta Township, Carroll County, Ohio

Click on title to link to the August Cemetery website.

Below is a quote from the site's introduction:


"My name is Cyndy Solon Pryor of Troutdale, Oregon. My mother, Bette Ina Brown, is putting together this website and I am assisting her in getting it published. To learn more about why my mother is interested in the Augusta Cemetery, read "About Bette I. Brown".

The goal of this website is to list the people buried in the Augusta Cemetery, and to bring “life” to their memories by including information, photographs, documents and recollections concerning each person. It is a huge task that will take some time to accomplish, but my mother is determined.

If you have information, photographs, documents, or recollections on one or more of the "Residents" in this cemetery, we would love to include those on this website."
