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."

Cordelia Baldwin ( - 1841) - Find A Grave Photos

They don't make markers like this any more!

Sharing a photo of Cordelia Baldwin's exquisite silt stone marker so expertly carved 175 years ago in 1841.
