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."

Featuring the Hitler-Ludwig Cemetery in Pickaway County, Ohio

The Hitler-Ludwig Cemetery in Pickaway County, Ohio is not a large cemetery, but one that is well maintained with many unusual monuments and markers in the newer sections as well as older towering monuments erected for members of the Hitler and Ludwig families that lived in the area.  

It must be mentioned that none of the Hitler family that lived in Pickaway County had any connection to Adolf Hitler.   

Below are a few photographs of newer monuments taken on July 19, 2012

Spotlighting Reber Hill Cemetery in Walnut Township, Pickaway County, Ohio

Reber Hill Cemetery in Pickaway County, Ohio is among my favorite cemeteries to visit in the state of Ohio.  One of the reasons is that my great-great grandparents, Wesley and Martha Ann (Miller) Limes, are buried at Reber Hill.  

Reber Hill is situated on the East side of Winchester Road.  An on-site caretaker lives on the property the last that I knew.
Below are a few new photographs I took on July 19, 2012 that I'll share in this post.  

Sharing Some Photographs of Gravestones at Good Hope Cemetery in Wayne Township, Fayette County, Ohio

Sharing some photographs taken on July 21, 2012 at the Good Hope Cemetery in Wayne Township, Fayette County, Ohio:

Good Hope Cemetery has always appeared well maintained whenever I have visited it.  
The cemetery sections are laid out well and are easily identifiable with large section markers.  
 The Fayette County Genealogical Society has published a wonderful tombstone inscription book for Wayne Township.
(Wayne and Marion Townships are together in one book.)
Published in 2000 by Charles R. Gossett and Peggy Gilmore (now deceased). 

The Fayette County Genealogical Society members have done an outstanding job of documenting burials in their county. They have published all of their transcriptions by township name in books that can be purchased through the FCGS. Included when possible, are previous older readings that may offer transcriptions of stones no longer visible or readable.
