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."

Green Lawn Cemetery of Columbus, Ohio - One of the Cemeteries Affected by the Storms that Struck Central Ohio This Past Weekend

As those of us who live in Ohio already know, the change in weather this past weekend and the last couple of days have brought us much needed rain, however,  unfortunately with some of the rain came a 'wall of wind' -- straight-line windstorms, as our TV and radio weather forecasters tell us are called Derecho.  

The aftermath from these storms have left a wake of extensive damage done to property including at Ohio's cemeteries.

Sharing below a photo generously shared by Brent Nimmo who is a good friend to Green Lawn Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio: 

Brent reports Green Lawn is working on extensive clean up efforts at the cemetery.  

I hope to receive more reports about the restoration of the stones that were damaged at Green Lawn from Brent and other sources.
