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."

Mary Courtright ( - 1841) - Find A Grave Memorial

Sharing this "Find A Grave" memorial for Mary Courtright who was buried at the Gray Cemetery in Madison Township, Franklin County, Ohio. 
Today, there are no stones left standing at the Gray Cemetery.  At some point, fragments of gravestones were cemented in one large upright tablet; a photograph of this tablet can be seen on the main cemetery page.  

Very small pieces of Mary Courtright's original monument are all that remains which were imbedded in the tablet with many other fragments from original gravestones that once stood at gravesites for those who are interred at the Gray Cemetery.  My thanks to Brent Nimmo for sharing this information.
