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."

From Wintersville, Jefferson County, Ohio -- "Not to be Forgotten"

"Not to be Forgotten"

"Graver marker dedication service today at Two Ridges Cemetery remembers special Union soldier"

Janice Kiaski

"Pvt. Martin Kean of the 9th Michigan Cavalry was wounded in the Skirmish of Two Ridges on July 26, 1863, as the Union forces were attempting to capture Gen. John Hunt Morgan, whose Confederate forces had entered Ohio. Kean was cared for by a Wintersville family, but died a month later on Aug. 27, the only death of the military effort."
