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."

Happy New Year - 2015! Spotlighting one of My Favorite Smaller Cemeteries

View of Sheep Pen Cemetery.  
It is also known as Limes or Gustin Cemetery.  
It straddles the county line between Highland and Fayette Counties in Ohio.  
The entire cemetery suffered vandalism in 2011 and fortunately the stones were repaired and re-set.
