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!

Working with a small team of volunteers on the records for this cemetery. New memorials, images, and updates to current memorials are being added daily.

Our thanks to the wonderful volunteers who recorded the gravestones in June 1988: 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. 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. They gave us a huge jumpstart to our project!

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.

RE: Dennis Smith #7787145
Jo, I was given permission to freely use the photo of Dennis Smith's tombstone when I was researching my Smith families, to prove ny lineage to the Daughtets of the American Revolution. I think that approval would also extend to others.

Hi again Jo,
I was confused about which cemetery, because I have certainly been to Spring Grove hundreds of times and the Sections are marked very well. Obviously, my mistake. The good news is that I have removed the photo.

RE: Henry Emerson
Hi Jo,
I will absolutely remove the photo from the wrong Henry Emerson. No problem. I had never been to that cemetery before and the sections aren't marked that I could see.

Since the names are different, I did not delete this memorial but instead added a note with Mary Maria Sailor Roudebush's information onto Polly Roudabush's FindAGrave site.
