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 cemeteries in Conneaut, Ashtabula County, Ohio

This website was created in 2003, and I am not sure of the timeframe for updates on it, but it is a very interesting and detailed site featuring many links to cemeteries and those in the area like North Kingsville, and even some in Pennsylvania. 
Selected gravestone photographs are included.

Remembering a Civil War Horse from Ohio named Frank

Click on title to read about Frank, the Civil War Horse, who served with Saddler Abraham Conger in Company "A" of the 12th Ohio Volunteer Cavalry.  Frank died in 1886, however, from some written accounts, his tombstone was inscribed with the year of death as 1888. 

Frank was buried on Captain Harter's Farm in Oceola, Crawford County, Ohio and is shown as such on "Find A Grave."
