BRINGING LIGHT ON BEHALF OF A FORGOTTEN PEOPLE

 

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:

  1. To properly identify each grave in the same dignified manner as is customary in our society.
  2. To make it easier for family members and others to find those buried there.
  3. To retain historical accuracy while at the same time restore the honor of identification.
