The Colonels of Spring Grove - John Fox Wiltsee

John Fox Wiltsee was ironically enough an undertake in his civilian life.  It is fitting that one in his profession would select such a beautiful cemetery for a final resting place.  Born on June 15th, 1823 in Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey, Wiltsee attended Woodward College in Cincinnati.  His Civil War career was brief as he led the 2nd Ohio Volunteer Militia for one month from September 4th to October 4th, 1862.

Wiltsee died on March 29th, 1899 and is buried in Section 46, Lot 113.
