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."

Spotlighting Wesleyan Cemetery in Cincinnati, Ohio

The "Ohio Civil War 150" blog published a story on August 2, 2012  (by By jodiem) about the Wesleyan Cemetery in Cincinnati, Ohio entitled:  "Wesleyan Cemetery: Forgotten Cincinnati Gem."  

The cemetery is Hamilton County's oldest operating cemetery.  I think you'll enjoy reading this story which covers the history of the Wesleyan Cemetery and the current restoration work that is being done to improve it.

Currently, "Find A Grave" lists 7,697 interments at the Wesleyan Cemetery.
