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."

Posting as a public service announcement for veterans of Highland County, Ohio: 

"First Annual Veterans Outreach" - Thursday, May 10, 2012 - 9:a.m. to 4:00p.m. - 135 N. High Street, Hillsboro, Ohio

"Stop by and see what your County Veterans Service Officer can do for you!  Bring your DD-214 and let's check out what you may qualify for!! 

Come check out our new Veterans friendly lobby with free computer access for our Veterans who are job hunting!  Also, the VA Mobile Center will be here to provide readjustment and transition assistance." 

Outreach Highlights: 
Dayton VA Mobile Vet Center
Chillicothe VA Medical Center, and
AM Vets Career Resource Center.

We are doing this outreach on the same day we are distributing the flags and markers for the veterans graves. 

We thought it was fitting to tie everything together since most people do not know that we even provide the service of helping to take care of our Veterans graves.

It's an all day event so folks can show up anytime they are available to do so."
