Olive Grove Cemetery
10135 South Painter Avenue
Whittier, California
Founded in 1896 by a colony of German Baptists known as “Dunkers” (due to their method of baptism). They moved in 1972, and another local church owned and maintained the cemetery, but as of 2005, that church had been torn down and ownership of the cemetery is unclear.
