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."

Spotlighting the North Kirtland Cemetery, Kirtland, Lake County, Ohio

Sharing below photographs taken by my friend Rick who often visits Lake County and Geauga County cemeteries.  For a complete view of the cemetery pictures taken on December 3, 2013, please see the album of the North Kirtland Cemetery in the right-hand column.  
There are 704 interments listed on "Find A Grave" for the North Kirtland Cemetery
The Lake County Genealogical Society has posted online an extensive historical account of the North Kirtland Cemetery.  I think you might find its history quite interesting.
