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 the Greenfield Cemetery's Walking Tour Booklet and 2012 Ghost Walk Coming up on October 8 at the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio

Click on title to access the Greenfield Cemetery's 13-page Walking Tour Booklet that is available for downloading from the internet from the website of the "Greenfield Historical Society."  

I love visiting Highland County, Ohio and Greenfield in particular.  Several of my Limes ancestors were buried in Greenfield, Hillsboro, and at the "Sheep Pen" Cemeteries.  So, I enjoy reading about the news of events happening in Highland County and Greenfield.  Some great folks also live in that area too by the way!

Also on the Greenfield Historical Society's website is a link that shows photographs of the "barn quilts" that are painted on several county barns.

Links to burial records at the Greenfield Cemetery and a cemetery map are there for your browsing as well.

As in years past, there will be a ghost walk coming up on October 8, starting at 6:00p.m. at the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield.  I hope to learn more details about it soon.  

The line up is as follows:                Presented by:

Daniel Lieb                                       Jerry Parker
Joshua Merrill                                  Terry Washburn
James Patterson                               Robert Judkins
Cordelia Depoy                                 Roxanne Judkins
Samuel Gadbury                               Eric Salyers
So, hope you enjoy your visit on the website of the "Greenfield Historical Society"!
