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."

Obituary: Martha A. 'Marti' O'Neill | Friedrich-Jones & Overman-Jones, serving Naperville & Plainfield IL

 Sharing this "Find A Grave" Memorial for my long time friend and pen-pal, Martha "Marti" Pugacz O'Neill.  

I only met Marti once but we corresponded for 50 years.  It all started over our mutual 'love' of the Beatles!  

I miss hearing from you, Marti.
