We are a group of private citizens who are seeking to place identifying grave markers on each grave currently marked with only a number in the old Athens Asylum cemeteries in Athens, Ohio.
Over 1,700 people died while being treated at this asylum and were not claimed by family members. The cemeteries became their final resting place.
Our quest to install grave markers has a three-fold purpose:
Marker placements will resume in the spring.
The next meeting will be on Monday, May 18, 2015 at
Maya Burrito Company
12 E. Main St., Logan, OH
The 2015 Veterans Day Ceremony to be announced.
