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."

The volunteers who regularly do clean up work at Floral Hills Memory Gardens in Chillicothe, Ross County, Ohio have set up a Facebook Page entitled:

Sharing their latest message:

As we look out over the Flags set for our resting Military, out over the Markers of our loved ones....we see hope and fellowship in bringing together a community to help when Floral Hills Memory Gardens has been neglected and unkept, we look for others to fix what we see, we look to others to do what needs to be done. 

Somewhere we as a society have lost a part of our common decency and moral character. We have shown thru the help of all the volunteers here...that we can stand up when we are pushed down, we can stand together when times are tough. we will demand that our leaders and state officials listen to our voices. 

We will look past the roadblocks and continue our fight, we will look past those who choose to ignore and we will proceed. There will always be something in the road trying to slow you down....it's what you do when you come upon this delay that will determine who you are. 

We will be having a Memorial Day Service immediately following the scheduled Annual Clean-up on May 28th, 2016. 

We realize it is Saturday, but will wait no longer to show respect to our Military that are resting at Floral Hills Memory Gardens-Chillicothe. 

We hope to see alot of you there this coming Saturday...and hope all will stay and more will come for our Memorial Day Service at 3pm. Thank you to all the volunteers that load up their mowers throughout the year, thank you to all those that continue to help everyday in what they are able to do. We will get better, we will be heard....nothing this big is ever easy, nor able to fix overnight. Stand together and strong and help us rise again. Thank You for your help."
