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."

Wishing Everyone a Happy New Year ! Thank You for Stopping by!

All Saints Cemetery, Babyland Section, Northfield, Ohio
Thanking all of those who have contributed to this blog over the past year.  

Thanking you, the readers, who have so kindly stopped by to visit.  

Thanking the wonderful "Find A Grave" photo volunteers for their work fulfilling gravestone photo requests and posting gravestone photos to memorials. 

Thanking all those who have brought awareness of the needs of so many cemeteries in Ohio that have remained for so long neglected and almost forgotten about -- except by you.   Without you, these cemeteries and the gravesites they contain would be totally forgotten and lose their identity.   
May your dedicated efforts on their behalf continue to succeed. 
The year 2015 will bring new cemetery preservation challenges to overcome, but they will not be so great as to overshadow the new opportunities that await us to recognize and grasp. 
May your opportunities be boundless!
