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 Storm Damage at Green Lawn Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio

Brent Nimmo reports today that he feels about 40 trees were toppled during the last round of storms at Green Lawn Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio.  g

"Think Sandra L. Latimer said we lost about 40 trees. A call is out for volunteers to pick up branches and drag them to the road like after Ike. With all the storm damage, tree companies work on the ones blocking roads, fallen on electric lines, and people's houses before cemetery cleanup. Tree company got most of all of the huge oak in Soldiers Circle in Section M except the big stump.... I was surprised at how quickly that happened..."

I haven't seen any TV reports or newspaper stories about the damage, however, posted yet online.
