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."

Spotlighting The Ohio Veterans Home Cemetery to commemorate Veterans' Day 2013.


On the website, "Find A Grave", 1,513 interments are listed for The Ohio Veterans Home Cemetery located in Sandusky, Ohio.  

Sharing some views (below) from an old booklet I have of the Ohio Soldiers' and Sailors' Home published circa 1915.  

My own great-great grandfather, Wesley Limes, lived at the home until his death on December 5, 1916.
