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."

Winfield Scott Limes (1875 - 1959) - Find A Grave Memorial

Thanking Joel N. Cocker,  for his expert restoration work on my grandfather (and Joel's great-great grandfather!) Winfield Scott Limes  photograph originally taken sometime in the late 1940s to early 1950s.   

The photograph had suffered water damage and had a crease running horizontally across the facial area.  Thanks to Joel's fantastic work, the photograph appears to have been just taken yesterday!  I am so excited to share here after posting it on the "Find A Grave" memorial for Winfield Scott Limes, born in Pickaway County, Ohio and died in Lorain, Ohio.
