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 Corp. Noah Turner "N. T." McVay buried at Sheep Pen Cemetery in Madison Township, Highland County, Ohio. 

Thanking Scott Andersen for two new 2016 photos of Corp. McVay's gravestone after it was dug up out of the ground and put in a new base that was made for it. The photo on the upper left was taken in 2010 before it was dug up and properly cleaned, repaired and reset.
