We were visiting in Portsmouth, Ohio when we spotted this sign showing a cemetery. We checked to see if the cemetery was recorded and to our amazement it had not. It was decided that during our short time in Portsmouth we would photograph and document this cemetery. Upon returning to the cemetery we saw not a single headstone or marker of any type. We found this to be quite odd so decided to try to collect some information. The local Catholic head was contacted and asked about the cemetery. We were informed that around 1964 the cemetery was bull dozed/cleared of all headstones and marker. Reason being unknown. Good records were being kept by 1964 so what really happened? A couple of the funeral directors were interviewed and little was known about the cemetery other than all records are gone or being kept unavailable.

This would be an excellent study/ investigation for someone that has the time and ambition to take it on. Seems the community may be attempting to keep a secret for some reason.

GPS cord. on cemetery photo are incorrect but have corrected cord. with the map.
