Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello -

*** Mar 2014 UPDATE: Photographed all of Sharon Cemetery while working on photo requests. Glad the weather is finally improving. ***

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, specifically Stonelick Twp Catholic immigrants. 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 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. We would appreciate knowing your sources and where we can locate them for any corrections requested. Even if it's just "Aunt so & so said so", lol.

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!

RE: Coleman family in Owensville, Ohio
Thank you for your reply and photos.

This Peter Coleman (96835414) is my g-g-grandfather's brother. Mary (96835412) is Peter's wife and Agnes (126707485) is Peter's sister.

My g-g-grandfather Mathias Coleman (97258678) is buried in Stonelick IOOF cemetery. I think his wife Sarah is buried next to him but I have not seen an entry for her on find-a-grave.

I am really looking for Peter and Mathias' father, Peter Coleman/Kolmann. I think he died of Cholera in 1850. Do you know of any Cholera graveyards or records in Clermont County?

Thanks for your help.

Hi! Regarding your photo request, can you please contact the cemetery and obtain the Section, Lot, and Grave Number information, and then post it to your request? Please also ask if there is a grave marker and add that information to your photo request and/or memorial. The Find A Grave FAQs state the photo requestor is responsible to provide this information.

Elmwood Cemetery: (708) 453-0273

This cemetery provides extremely limited assistance to photo volunteers with finding a grave's location. Last year I was able to fulfill almost 200 photo requests at Elmwood through this process. Because the lots in this cemetery are poorly marked, almost no one else ever photographs here. I have only had success here because I have spent literally weeks at a time to learn the intricacies of the layout of this cemetery.

Thank you for helping me to help you.
