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."

It Has Happened Again to Another Ohio Cemetery ~ Oakwood Cemetery in Cuyahoga Falls Vandalized

As I write, I am breaking away from watching the 11:00p.m. news tonight because it is important to post the sad news just reported about yet another Ohio cemetery that has been vandalized.  

Thanking the source for this story, WKYC - TV - NBC affiliate, channel 3 in Cleveland, Ohio for airing this news report with video. 

Please take a moment to read the story and view the accompanying video.  

If we ever have another reason to continue this fight against the forces that work to destroy our cemeteries, this is at the top of the list.   We pray that those who are responsible for this senseless act are quickly apprehended and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
