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."

Update on Butcher Cemetery - North Lewisburg, Champaign County, Ohio

An update to report on concerning Butcher Cemetery in North Lewisburg, Champaign County, Ohio.  It is now in its correct form. 

There had been 47 erroneously posted memorials on it for about 3 months.  The "Find A Grave" administrator has now removed them. 

I was told that my emails to them (I emailed them at both edit@findagrave.com and info@findagrave.com) ended up somehow in their SPAM folder.  I was just getting ready to mail all of the information to them in care of their physical address, so the timing of the notification was good. 

From what I have learned from reading the "Find A Grave" forums, it is best to send over no more than 5 requests at a time or your wait will be longer. 

It is always best to read the "FAQs" on "Find A Grave" as well as the forums for any updates made on this massive site that now boasts 71 million records.
