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."

Nancy King's Story - Justice for her parents who were buried at Resthaven Memory Gardens in Avon, Lorain County, Ohio

Nancy King, who lives in California, finally had to make what was most likely the toughest decision of her life when she took the steps to exhume her parents from Resthaven Memory Gardens located in Avon, Lorain County, Ohio
The link to this WKYC - Channel 3 feature report with Nancy , explaining the reasons for her decision, tells of her additional tribulations that she had to endure dealing with the owner of Resthaven Memory Gardens -- StoneMor.
StoneMor's cemeteries across the United States are listed under the BurialPlanning.com website.  Specifically, there is a link for their Ohio cemeteries which are all owned and/or operated by StoneMor.
Please watch Nancy's story; its one that should never have happened to her or anyone in 21st Century America!  We need stronger national and state laws to protect and preserve gravesites than we currently have.
