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."

Honoring Our Deceased Veterans on Veterans Day 2012

Click on title to read a CNN story published today, November 10, 2012, in honor of Veterans Day this year.  

CNN writer Philip Gast wrote the story about Medal of Honor Recipient Rodney M. Davis.  
Excerpted from the story:

"Linwood Cemetery in Macon, Georgia, fell into disrepair over the years, prompting families and volunteers to clean the site and graves, including that of Marine Sgt. Rodney Davis. Thanks to one of the men Davis saved in Vietnam, veterans have rallied to create a lasting legacy to Davis this Veterans Day weekend."

Please check online or your local Ohio newspapers for Veterans Day services held in your area.
