Hooper, William Hord, George M. Hosea, R. Hoyt, Waite
William Hooper came to Cincinnati from England and became a clerk at a bank. His work as the financier of the bank during the panic of 1837 helped save the bank from collapse and he soon became the president. He later sold the bank and during the Civil War he was a captain in the Union Army and he helped defend Cincinnati when it was threatened by Confederate forces in 1862. He helped raise money for the volunteer forces that were recruited and provided funds for the construction of the artillery batteries that were constructed in the hills of Northern Kentucky. Battery Hooper named for him that was built in Fort Mitchell still stands today. The James A Ramage Civil War Museum is on the site. He also purchased 4 steamboats that were used as rams by the Union Navy and served as paymaster. He died in 1894. Waite Hoyt was a great Yankee Pitcher during the Babe Ruth Years and became one of the greatest radio announcers for the Cincinnati Reds.
Thomas Hughes Huggins, Miller Hulbert, William P. Hurley, Carrie
Thomas Hughes was responsible for the the creation of the school named after him, Hughes High School. Originally buried at the old 12th Street burying grounds in December of 1824 they were reinterred at Spring Grove Cemetery in August of 1858 in the lot of John Melendy, at whose house Hughes had died. In May of 1871 Hughes was again moved to Section 11 where he was buried beneath the monument seen above that was erected by the Hughes Alumnal Association in gratitude to their benefactor. The monument at almost 22' tall is topped by a female figure 7' tall that is the Genius of Education. Miller Huggins was, of course a Manager for many years for the Yankees. Poor little Carrie Hurley, the weather and air pollution has destroyed most of her face and she has only one eye. People always leave flowers for her.
I. O. O. F. Monument
The first image is a postcard. I would guess that in order to be buried here you would have to be a member of the Odd Fellows.

Mann, William C. Markbreit, Leopold Martin Matthews, Stanley
I don't appear to have Cincinnati Mayor Leopold Markbreit's Monument so his grave marker will have to do for now. Stanley Matthews was a lawyer who became an Ohio Senator, A lieutenant Colonel in the Union Army and finally became a member of the Supreme Court.
McAlpin McCaffrey McGrew McGuffey, Alexander
I don't know if this McAlpin is the founder of McAlpin's Department store or not. Alexander McGuffey was one of the brothers who wrote and produced the famous McGuffey Readers.

Miller Miller, Charles A. Doctor Miller, Sophie Mohlenhoff, Fred
By a odd connection both of the first two Miller Monuments contain a second name "Lulu". I don't believe they are connected, I think the first one is a young girl while the 2nd one was 20 years old when she died.
Morgan, R. J. Moss, John
Mudge, Enoch Muhlhauser Neave, Charles
Neff Jr., Peter Neff, George W. Neff, Isabella (wife of Peter} Neff, William
I'm sure these four are connected, for instance Peter Neff Jr. must be the son of Peter who was the husband of Isabella. If they are related I don't understand why there is not a single family monument. Any help "out there"?
Nippert, Jimmy Insect Statue? Norris, John C. Noyes, Edward
University of Cincinnati's Nippert Stadium is named for Jimmy Nippert who died from a football injury. I don't know what to say about the 2nd image. Edward Noyes was a Governor of Ohio.
Oberheu, Clara Oskamp Pfau, Charles
I presume, but don't know, that this is William Oskamp one half of the famous jewelry firm of Oskamp Nolting Jewelers.
William Proctor & James Gamble
It is only fitting that the two people responsible for forming the most easily recognized company in the world would have the same type of monuments. They are not buried next to each as it seems but are in separate parts of the cemetery. I am referring of course to the founders of P & G.
Patterson, Nicholas Pierce, Joseph Ray, James Brown Reichert
James Brown Ray was the 4th Governor of Indiana and also a Senator.
Reif Resor, Margaret Resor (?) Richardson, J. C.
