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 Leona L. Gustafson, the Union County Ohio WPA Cemetery Plat Maps, and The Union County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society

If you have ever searched the Internet for resources for Central Ohio cemeteries and gravesites then you have surely found the websites of Leona L. Gustafson.  We are indebted to Leona for all of her tireless work that she has shared with us.  

From Leona:

"I'm the president, newsletter editor, and "acting" programs chairperson for the Union County Chapter, OGS."
For me, Leona's links on her website have been a godsend, and I can spend a whole day just browsing through them. 

Below are a sampling of the main categories and links you will find: 

"Cemetery Photos - Counties Bordering Franklin"
Delaware County Cemetery Photos Fairfield County Cemetery Photos
Licking County Cemetery Photos
Madison County Cemetery Photos
Pickaway County Cemetery Photos Union County, Ohio Cemetery Photos
Below is the most recent update to the page for WPA Cemetery Plat Maps for Union County, Ohio.  

Included are links for Leona L. Gustafson's website:  "Franklin County, Ohio Gravestone Photos &c.", and the Union County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society.  

Also included is a separate link to access the scanned images of Union County Ohio's WPA Cemetery Plat maps.
