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.

Thank you so much for the photo. I assume Martha didn't have an individual stone. What a beautiful setting. Your efforts on behalf of Find A Grave and genealogy researchers are truly appreciated.

William Oliver Burgess
Hello Jo, thanks for the helpful hints. Regarding the inadvertent duplicate created for the man listed as "William O. Burgess", I'm not sure if I've even noticed it before. There is so little information provided that it was easy to overlook. William Oliver Burgess is my great grandfather and the memorial I created for him contains much more information, including his parents and children, most of whom have their own memorials created by me. They are all linked together. Wouldn't it be much easier and less complicated to delete the previously existing memorial, rather than submitting a dozen edits to make it as accurate as mine?

Thank you for going to the cemetery to take a photo of the grave area. I had no idea that there was no stone, but you at least narrowed down the location. Thanks again.
