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."

Announcing Holycross Family Reunion tentatively scheduled for August 25 - 26, 2012 In Or Near North Lewisburg, Champaign County, Ohio


The bi-annual Holycross Family Reunion for all descendents of John Holycross (b. VA 1740) and his five sons is tentatively scheduled for 25 and 26 August 2012 in or near North Lewisburg, Ohio (exact location TBD).

Monitor the website for details, contact information, and RSVP’s.

Please share this information with other family members.

The sons of John Holycross all emigrated to the North Lewisburg, Ohio area in 1810 with their entire families. One son, Abram, later emigrated to Indiana and, ultimately, Illinois. Because of the huge numbers of Holycross descendents still located in the North Lewisburg vicinity, more attendees should be available.

Everyone with a Holycross among their ancestors is encouraged to come and meet your extended family.
