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."

Per Scott Andersen, the photograph of the Robert Dickey Stone and the row of new government gravestones is actually at the South Salem Cemetery. 

"I believe someone put up that row of memorials to honor the men of Ross County who fought in the Revolution, but did not have a known Grave site."

"At least two of the memorials are for men buried less than a mile away in the Dean Cemetery."
