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 Link for the Fourth Cemetery Preservation Workshop Held Saturday, September 6, 2014 at the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio

Click HERE for pictures of the Fourth Cemetery Preservation Workshop that was held on September 6, 2014, at the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Highland County. Ohio.  

As with the previous workshops held this year at the Old Burying Ground, Scott and Venus Andersen led the other Greenfield Historical Society volunteers with the group's work to clean, repair, and in some instances, re-set broken gravestones to once again stand upright.  

Good progress is evident and the Old Burying Ground certainly looks increasing improved after the conclusion of each workshop.  The entire group is to be congratulated for their perseverance and efforts. 
The website "Find A Grave" current lists 412 interments at the Old Burying Ground
