Bio and Links
Bio Photo When weather and time permit, I like nothing better than to visit cemeteries, photographing grave markers and monuments. For the past 30 years on and off, I have researched extensively in Clermont, Hamilton, and Warren Counties in Ohio, and Kenton County in Kentucky.

Permission is granted to use my photos. I am more than happy to provide them and help other researchers however I can.

*If you are new to this site, please read the FAQs and follow the guidelines. Make sure you search before adding a listing, and never post a photo you do not have permission to use (such as from another site). Let's work together to eliminate duplicate listings and prevent copyright infringement. Keep fun!

All gravestones were recorded in June 1988 by Mrs. Maxine Fisher, Ms. Beverly Hafemister, Mrs. Joan I. Hughes, Mrs. Mary H. Remler, Mrs. Alma A. Smith, Mrs. Nancy L. Stern, and Mrs. Margie Thomas. Our thanks to their hard work!

Each burial that they found to have a marker now has a memorial. Burials done since June 1988, and many, many more burials WITHOUT markers are still being added, but each requires a little research, so it is a work in progress.

This information can be found in the Hamilton County Burial Records, Volume 2, Anderson Township Cemeteries 1800-1989 by The Hamilton County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society, 175 pp., maps, surname index, 1990.

I am happy to transfer any listings which are not my family!

Spring Grove is incredibly beautiful and always a joy to visit, but it is also extremely large. Second in the nation only to Arlington National Cemetery, it has over 700 acres, of which 450 are developed and in use. There are roughly a quarter of a million burials there. Many of the Lots are family Lots and have a central monument surounded by individual markers for each person.

I hope you have visited their website at and used their Locate a Loved One page. You can search by name or location to access the burial records. These contain a wealth of information and are definitely worth a look. Expanding your search to include everybody in the same Lot is a great way to find other family members.

Good luck and let me know if I can be of any help.

Mary A. Richardson French
Hi Jo,

Thanks for the links. I have linked Mary to her parents and added her maiden name. I apologize for not adding your edits earlier. I get a lot of edit requests and sometimes they are incorrect which is why I like to have some background/documentation. Your message provided just that. Even though you are only related distantly, I am not at all related to Mary so I will transfer her memorial to you. I hope that's okay.

RE: Stephen Coddington
I've transferred Stephen and his wife to you. Distant is still family. If I have others at Flagg and you wish to manage, please send a transfer request. My husband and I did spend some time over at Flagg, but not recently.

Jo: Thank you for the parent links. I'm not related, just added & photographed. I'll be happy to transfer the memorial if you are related to this family -- just let me know.

RE: Grimes
Jo, thank you for your kind offer, but they are not relatives. Louis' Grimes father, Isaac, was interred in the same cemetery as some of my Grimes relatives and I researched him to see if he was related. He wasn't. When I realized Isaac was a Civil War veteran, I added him to honor his service and the whole thing kind of snowballed from there lol..Thanks again! Laura :)

RE: Flagg Springs
Yes, what are the odds? Happy to help and the new app makes the photo adds pretty quick. I dont have family in Flagg, but pass it going to a friend's house every week. I'm sure I'll be back to catch a few more.

Well, well, this is a nice surprise. Herbert's stone photo will now be entered in the family scrapbook, on his page where it belongs. Thank you so very much for taking the time to do this for us, we truly appreciate your efforts. God Bless.
