Bio Photo Hello All -

*** Nov 2014 Update - so many graves, so little time. I'm probably done for the winter. But I have so many photos I haven't done anything with yet, I've got plenty to keep me busy. - 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. 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: James & Anna Terrell
You're welcome. In case you didn't see it, I added GPS coordinates to the plot info on their memorials. If you click on those, you can see the location on google maps.

RE: Burdsall burials
Hi James, The Burdsalls are buried in Bloomrose Cemetery in Sterling Township, Brown County. I have never corresponded with "Gone Too Soon." Would appreciate your advising her.

I just came back from Oak Hill Cemetery. Arthur & Idabel have unmarked graves, but I did photograph their location. I did photograph the shared headstone of John & Helen Spahr. As for Eva Spahr, I did photograph her headstone, and looked around her Lot 123, but she is pretty much by herself. Others buried in Section 15, Lot 123 are: Louie Reed (space 4), Ella Reed (space 5), infant male Dice (space 7).
