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."

Update from Casey Winningham - The Stephen S. Smith Gravestone is Now Completed and Ready to be Installed at the Hill Cemetery in Sandusky County, Ohio

Thanking Casey Winningham of "Past Times Remembered" for sharing the latest photograph of his new gravestones for Susannah Smith, and her husband Stephen S. Smith, that he recently hand carved to replicate and replace their badly damaged originals. 

In the previous blog post, Casey mentioned that the gravestone for Stephen S. Smith had not yet been completed.  

Now these gracefully carved limestone markers, so skillfully created by Casey down to the last detail, silently await their installations at the Hill Cemetery in Sandusky County, Ohio.
