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 Blog Post from "Brady's Bunch of Lorain County" about a Small Pioneer Cemetery Known By Different Names

Sharing a July, 1954 look back story that is the featured current post from the "Brady's Bunch of Lorain County"  Blog about the burials at a small early Lorain County cemetery which has been known by three different names:  

Pioneer Cemetery, Day Cemetery, or Root Family Cemetery.

This well-kept burying ground is listed as the Day Cemetery on "Find A Grave" with only 16 interments included for it.  It can be considered a family cemetery with most of the surnames being either Day or Root.
