Hamilton County, Ohio Burial Records, Volume 12: Calvary Cemetery


Calvary Cemetery is located in the Cincinnati, Ohio, suburb of Evanston and covers thirteen acres. The first burial was recorded in November 1865; over 17,000 interments have since been made and the grounds remain active. This new work reprints Calvary Cemetery's burial records in their entirety, cross-referenced with readings from headstones and markers to ensure accuracy. Records are arranged alphabetically by surname and contain (wherever available): full name of the deceased, date of birth, date of death, age at time of death and date of interment, with cemetery section, lot and row numbers. Generally, these records contain little supplemental information but do occasionally note familial relations (such as father, mother, sister, or brother), military service and name changes. In addition to thousands of Cincinnati area residents, Calvary Cemetery is also the resting place of Sisters from three religious convents: the Sisters of St. Ursula Convent and Academy in Section E, the Little Sisters of the Poor in Sections S and I, and the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, also in Section I. These women are listed together with fellow members of their order, identified by both their birth and religious names. Their surnames, as well as those of allied family members, are included in the "Additional Family Related Surname Index" which closes this volume. A map is included showing the locations of all burial grounds in Hamilton County, followed by plats for each section of Calvary Cemetery.
