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."

Remembering a National Hero and Ohio Son - John Herschel Glenn Jr.


My thoughts:  At this time in America, and indeed around the world, we who now live can attest to witnessing and or personally experiencing an atmosphere of increased divisiveness amongst people who are at odds with one another on many fronts. 

We can also take time individually and collectively, to reflect on the life of one man, an Ohioan named John Herschel Glenn, Jr. , who brought us together through his long life of service to America on many fronts; and now with the sad news of his passing.  We remember and honor John Glenn, and express our gratitude for his many contributions that left our world a better place because of what he did to positively change it.
