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."

Sharing a Message from Fayette County, Ohio "Find A Grave" Contributor Gene Wilt

"Linda; Thank you very much for this kind and unexpected public recognition.

I have always liked cemeteries and decided a few years ago that with the economy the way it has been and with people relocating all over the world it would be very cost prohibitive for most people to be able to make a trip to our local community to try and find their relative's final resting place.

So I decided to try and visit my local cemeteries and take photos of all the head stones and as I get the time post them on Find A Grave which is such a great web site, and I'm so happy to be able to help others connect possibly with long lost relatives.

Thank You Again for the kind words.

I hope everyone has a very Happy & Safe New Year!"
