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 All Volunteer Work Session held on August 19th, 2017 at the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Ohio once again achieved great progress with their efforts to clean, repair, and reset gravestones that stood in need of restoration and preservation.

Quoting from John King of the Greenfield Historical Society.:

"Since 2014, the Old Burying Ground (OBG) in Greenfield, Ohio, has been undergoing work by a group of dedicated volunteers. Throughout each year, work sessions have been held by project leaders Scott and Venus Andersen and John King.... We encourage your continued support in this effort and your sharing of this information with your friends. "
