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."

From my State Representative's Office - June 3, 2015:

"The bill is still pending in the House Ways and Means Committee. 

To my knowledge, there has not been any changes to the language of the bill. 

The legislation is also still being considered as an amendment to the budget so it is being considered in two ways, giving it an even better shot!"
