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."

The Southern Ohio Genealogical Society's September meeting to be held on September 15, 2011 at 6:30p.m. at the New Market Baptist Cemetery in New Market Township, Highland County, Ohio

The information below provided by Bob Patton of the Southern Ohio Genealogical Society:
"Don’t forget the September meeting of the Southern Ohio Genealogical Society, which will be held Thursday, September 15 at 6:30 PM in the New Market Baptist Cemetery.

The topic will be cleaning and restoring old tombstones, and using mirrors and/or chalk to aid in reading very old monuments.

This is a topic which should be of interest to anyone who is into genealogical research.

The New Market Baptist Cemetery is located on East New Market Road, just a few hundred feet east of Route 62, in the village of New Market.

There will be very little walking. You may want to bring a folding lawn chair. Hopefully, an umbrella will not be necessary.

See you September 15 at 6:30."
