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.

Hi Jo
Thanks for the reply. Go ahead and transfer them if it's no trouble. I'm new at this so do I have to do anything for the transfer?

RE: Gendall Harlan Brownlee at Flagg Spring Cem., Newtown
Thank you again for finding Gendall Harlan Brownlee's burial location in Newtown OH! I have now transferred the info which you posted in 2014 at Flagg Spring Cem. onto the 2012 burial unknown version, as you suggested; if the revised version, #101774103, seems OK to you, then yes feel free to delete the 2014 entry. Thanks so much.

RE: Lars Anderson
Is it ok if I wait until this weekend to scan it? One of my kids came home to surprise me so everything is put on hold :))

RE: Lars Anderson
Found the obituary and yes - he was found about 2 months after going missing. I can scan it in or mail it to you, whichever you prefer. Just let me know!

Hi Jo

I transferred this memorial to you. I am pleased that a family member can take over its care.

If you like, I can try to find an obituary for you.
