Spring Grove Cemetery, AKA Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery, AKA German Reform Cemetery, AKA Salem Cemetery (Located in Johnson Township, South of Millerstown. On the East side of Heck Hill Road.) Submitted by Karen Johnson-Heber.
SUBMITTER NOTES: The research is copyrighted by Karen Johnson-Heber. NO authorization is allowed for posting my photos to or any other website or personnel family tree ( Other sites have transcribed my research notes without citing the source of their notes.

This is the most comprehensive “reading” of the cemetery done to date. This cemetery was compared to interment and lot records on file with the cemetery. Many more interments were identified without monuments due to this research. This site is the only site on the internet which has plat maps, postings of transcriptions of the original interment records which has included the section and lot. It is not transcribed from any publication or use of any other cemetery sites. On file, but not online the submitter has copies of the original individual lot records by section. Great care was taken working with the cemetery personnel to assure accuracy. There were many discrepancies’ identified by the submitter and these were corrected by the cemetery personnel and the original records were updated to reflect my research.

The Champaign County Genealogical Society updated a new Spring Grove cemetery publication in 2010 due to the errors identified by this submitter to them from their 1984 publication.

Not all obituaries have been posted online as of 1-Nov-2012. However, submitter does have many more original copies of obituaries.
    Resources utilized:
