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."

Sharing a Before and After Look at the Gravestone of Civil War Veteran T. M. Trout Buried at the Poe Cemetery in Medina County, Ohio.

Click on title to view the memorial for Civil War Veteran, T. M. Trout buried at the Poe Cemetery in Medina, Ohio.  

Inscription on the Civil War Marker is:

"Mosser's Co. 101 PA INF GAR 1861-1865"

This "Find A Grave" memorial for T. M. Trout has two photographs of his gravestone posted.  

One was posted in March of 2009 by the memorial's contributor, which is a "Before" cleaning photograph.  

The second photograph was posted by Mr. Jay Russell of "Respectful Interment Preservations" on September 14, 2012 following Mr. Russell's cleaning and straightening of this upright white marble government gravestone. 

It is my pleasure to share this memorial for Civil War veteran T. M. Trout whose stone has been properly restored with care and respect.
