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."

Joseph F. Smith (1836 - 1875) - Find A Grave Photos


Comparing the two photos on this memorial.  The most recent one in November of 2015 is after this beautiful original white marble marker was "Nyaloxed", and the one from 2013 shows the same marker before.

A simple treatment of water and Orvus soap, soft bristle brushes only, and a lot of rinsing afterward would have been sufficient to clean this marker.
