Notes

In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted "A large single stone (14 names) has been placed on the plot. There are no dates on stone. The plot is fenced and maintained." In 1999 Patricia Turner Ritchie in her book gives history of the Hess family and notes "Orinda Hess also has a stone in Mt. Grove Church of the Brethren cemetery. Abraham F. Hess & his wife Dora Hoover Hess are also buried at Mt. Grove Church of the Brethren."
