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."

This burial site is behind the County Health Bldgs at the corner of Muskingum Drive and Colegate Road. To reach this cemetery, follow the two track road up a hill behind the building. (Note it is a very steep climb.) Once at the top you will need to walk a ways to the area where the marker is.
All names have been recorded. Only the bronze monument/plaque remains. There are no individual markers left. The area has a fence around it and is mowed.
