Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello All -

No need to ever ask me if I would like a transfer, if I sent an edit, it is a line I am working on and I would welcome any transfers.
It makes future edits that much easier.
Thanks! - James

We are James Chandler and Mary (Gatch), lifelong residents of Clermont County, Ohio. James has been sorting out the past for nearly 35 years. His main area of focus is Southwest Ohio. You can reach him at the email in the designated spot at the bottom of this bio. Mary has entered all the Gatch family into going back to Godfrey Gatch of Baltimore. She can be reached at

We have more information on many of the memorials we manage, feel free to ask.
We don't "collect" memorials for the numbers.
We do sometimes request memorials of family or of lines we are doing extensive work on.

We don't purposely create duplicates, just let us know and we'll delete them if yours was first.

Please make any correction or transfer requests via the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question by following the "suggest a correction" link. If the person is in our line as well, we might not transfer them, but we will discuss any corrections and/or additions you'd like to make.

You have our permission to copy photos of your family member's graves, though we ask that you credit us so other researchers can find us if they wish. "Photo courtesy of 5chandlers (#47512372) at findagrave" will suffice.
Thank You!

If you are fulfilling a photo request for us, please keep the photo above 300KB, anything smaller is hard to read the dates on! Last we checked, findagrave now allows photos up to 8MB.
Though anything over 1.5MB is overkill.

We would like to give a shout out to Clermont County Genealogical Society for their incredible site at
Use it as an index, but please don't "borrow" their photos, (findagrave and the CCGS frown on that). There are plenty of us willing to go photograph them for you, just put in a request. Many, many thanks to Pamela Smith and the rest of the volunteers for their work on the CCGS site.

Thanks and Happy Hunting!

Joseph Sucher photo request
I was unable to locate a marker for Joeseph Sucher today in Sec. 121 Lot 0 Space 1171. Found Julia Martin, who according to cemetery records ( is in space 1169. Also found Laura Goldsmith in Space 1174. There are no markers in between these 2 spaces. Just a VERY large yew/cedar bush. If there is a marker, it is buried underneath this bush and is not visible.

RE: Myers cemetery
I was doing very well this morning until it started to pour rain. So I will try again on another day.

I prefer not to transfer. Just to correct some misinformation you are exhibiting on your member page. You say "We don't "collect" memorials for the numbers." Transferring DOES NOT reduce the number of memorials entered, merely the number managed.
Feel free to send any links .

I just wanted to say thanks for the transfer of Howard and Stella Philhower. I'll get to work updating their information today.

Gatch Family
I have just started research of my family. I am the great grandaughter of Gatch Shepard and Charlotte Bridges Gray. I was able to trace back to Gatch Shepards parents John L and Elizabeth Shepard but can't seem to go farther. My grandfather told us his father was named Gatch Shepard because he is part of the Gatch family. I'm assume ths is on his mothers side. I need info on Gatch Shepards family back past his parents. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You,
Janet Stollmaier

RE: Joseph & Amelia Kittel
Hi James,
You're welcome!
FYI - I volunteer alongside the caretaker of the old "Auto Graver" records from the Spring Grove memorials. I was able to update Joseph and Amelia's memorials based on the information in the Spring Grove interment records.
