The Spring Grove Project - Identified Stones

As will soon become obvious, very few, if any, of the stones still standing in Spring Grove #2 are period headstones. The majority of them are clearly memorial stones even though most of them are not marked as such.

Through this project, we have attempted to sort out the people behind the stones and their relationships to each other. None of this is guaranteed. If you have additional information, we would very much like to hear from you.

RELATED GRUBBS MEMORIALS AT SPRING GROVE

Van Krupps, William
STONE IS CLEARLY A MEMORIAL
Known by the last name of Grubbs, but was born Van Krupps in New York City. Served in the American Revolutionary War. 

The source of this information has not been located. We do know that many of the Grubbs clan entered the country as Kropf, Kropp, Grobb or other variations so Van Krupps seems possible. See also section on Andreas Kropf

Also see section on Heinrich Grobb

Grubbs, Hensley (Jr.)
STONE IS CLEARLY A MEMORIAL

Enlisted and served in the Continental Army for the duration of the war. He was a member of the Hanover County Company 14th Regiment.  Wintered in Valley Forge.

There are no records indicating that Hensley was anything other than a Private
There is no evidence at all Hensley is actually buried here.
A DAR memorial marker was placed near this stone in 1997.
