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 Story about Correcting an Inscription Mistake on a Revolutionary War Veteran's Monument

Sharing a news story that appeared online by PortClintonNewsHerald.com on July 5, 2013, that was written by Kristina Smith.  Included is a touching family video of the ceremonies.  This is not your usual story most might expect, but one with a twist regarding not the veteran himself, but his wife's name that had caused the problem.  

The new monument's photograph can be seen also on the "Find A Grave" memorial for Elizabeth Waggoner.
