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."

The website of "R.I.P." has been recently updated to include a very nice slideshow gallery of before restoration and after restoration photographs of gravestones that have been cleaned, repaired, and re-set that show remarkable results of improvement in the appearance of the gravestones' inscriptions.  
The lettering and dates of several markers were unreadable prior to the completion of the restoration work.
