Tombstone Tuesday: Oak Grove Cemetery Needs Help

I have family buried in the Oak Grove Cemetery. I had spoken with grounds crew about several family members buried in this cemetery. When searching for someone whose death certificate stated they were buried in the cemetery, the grounds crew said that a fire in 1940s wiped out records discussing the ownership of plots. In 2011, the Pleasant Township Board of Trustees said they could no long bury people in Oak Grove cemetery because they don't have the plot ownership records and don't know what size the plots are.

The Board of Trustees is asking for help from anyone who might have records about plots in that cemetery. If you're able to help, you can contact them at 614-877-3511.

Man I wish I had more that would be useful rather than a few death records.
