Tombstone Tuesday: Oak Grove Cemetery, Gambier, Knox Co., Ohio

Oak Grove Cemetery is in Gambier, Ohio. It is a fairly large cemetery so it is wise to have a publication to help you find the graves.

Source:  Cemetery Records of Knox County, Ohio, Volume 1, Oak Grove, Oak Grove (revision) Volume 2.  There is a map of the cemetery.  The public library in Mt. Vernon has copies as most of the genealogical societies in the area.

To get to this cemetery you go from Hwy 36 east of Mount Vernon and turn down Hwy 308 to Gambier.  Going south on Hwy 308, you can turn left onto W. Woodside to Gaskill Ave. and I think you turn left onto Ackland St. and you will find this cemetery.

Find A Grave has a listing for this cemetery with 93% photograph and 1162 interments.  There are four Kellers listed in this cemetery online.  I have photos of two of the Keller names, plus a Colwill. I did not find Garth or Kathleen Keller when I was there visiting in 2011. They were not in the area of the Homer and T. Jean Keller tombstone.
