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."

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving - 2019!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We do have much to be thankful for despite the setbacks that life throws at us. So it is that on Thanksgiving we devote a few moments to reflect on our country's past and the lives of the Mayflower pilgrims whose journey to America was perilous and uncertain.  Sadly, not all survived to reach its shores.  Yet, those who remained kept their courage and convictions.  Their strength sustained them to stay the course throughout the voyage and after they arrived in America.  They soon learned that they would be living on a landscape with a local culture that was vastly different than what they had left behind. It was their unwavering faith and fortitude that kept them going to adapt and even thrive.
"The rest is history"as they say, but what a glorious history and legacy these hardy pilgrims have given us.
In the spirit of sharing on a day of thanksgiving, here is a link to a "BillionGraves" Blog Post that I feel everyone can enjoy reading entitled: "Mayflower Family Gravestones."
