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."

Progress Report from Scott Andersen on his work at the Dean Cemetery - Buckskin Township, Ross County, Ohio

Scott Andersen will be sending progress reports this week about his current work at Dean Cemetery in Buckskin Township in Ross County, Ohio. 

Scott has visited Dean Cemetery in the past but is now working to unearth buried gravestones and clean away the overgrowth there.

 Click on title to access Dean Cemetery's memorials posted on "Find A Grave" where currently 21 are listed. 

Here is an excerpt from Scott's email today: 

"Found 22 headstones today at the Dean Cemetery. We worked for about four hours. Planning to do the same tomorow. We didn't try to read any of the stones today, just trying to locate as many as possible at this point. I 'll have another report tomorow."

Thank you Scott!

Looking forward to receiving your next report and later photographs you wish to share with us.
