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 Orange Hill Cemetery - Hunting Valley, Cuyahoga County, Ohio

 Above two photographs are of the Janette Beach gravestone.


Above are random photographs taken May 21, 2014 by Richard Luciano who visited the Orange Hill Cemetery in Hunting Valley, Cuyahoga County, Ohio.  Thanking Rick for sharing his photographs.

As you can see, several stones are broken and knocked down from what could have been a vandalism attack at some point in time.  

The Service Department of the Village of Hunting Valley is responsible for the care of the Orange Hill Cemetery.

 Per the Ohio Genealogical Society book:  "Ohio Cemeteries 1803 - 2003" - K. Roger Troutman, Editor, the Orange Hill Cemetery was in 2003 an active cemetery.
