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:
October 18, 2014 - 9:00 a.m.
3 to 6 markers will be placed.
The annual Veterans Day ceremony will be held on November 8, 2014, from 1:00-3:00 pm in Cemetery #1.

fundraisers and speaking events.
