Eckstein’s Buried at Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati

Eckstein family plot, Spring Grove Cemetery, Cincinnati, Ohio.

While in Cincinnati earlier in the year, Ritchey and I stopped by several cemeteries.  Spring Grove Cemetery was huge, and contained some of the most unusual gravestones.  This is the family stone for Frederick Eckstein and his wife, Harriet Holabird Eckstein.  Harriet was the daughter of Amos Holabird, 1787-1852, and Isabella Gibson Holabird, 1810-1874.

Frederick F. Eckstein, born September 10, 1821, in Philadelphia, and died April 8, 1893, in Cincinnati.
