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 a Once Missing Gravestone for Jane Patterson buried at Madison - Truro Cemetery in Madison Township, Franklin County, Ohio

Thanking Brent Nimmo for bringing to my attention that the once presumed lost gravestone of Jane Patterson, wife of William Patterson, buried at the Madison - Truro Cemetery in Franklin County, Ohio, is missing no more.  There had been reports posted online that her gravestone could not be found. 

 Brent has recently re-located the gravestone and posted a newer photo of it on "Find A Grave." 

(See photo below)

Brent created a Madison - Truro Virtual Cemetery on "Find A Grave" called "Madison Truro Stones Found Buried" and the "found stones" now number 79!  
Congratulations Brent for your job well done in discovering such an impressive number of gravestones! Because of your efforts, these gravesites are forgotten no more!
