Cemetery notes and/or description:
"This is not the site of the original burials. The original site has been destroyed by floods over the years and the flow of the [Missouri] river had changed. In 1993 there was the "Great Flood" and Washington University of St Louis MO removed the markers for safe keeping until after the flood. The markers were returned except for Katharine L Albrecht, John Albrecht, Louis Bayer and Witte. There was a marker found after the flood, hand carved, with the inscription of M.S. 1831."

From Chesterfield, MO Cemeteries, Marcella Stranz Mertz, 2000.

On top of a Levee in Chesterfield MO, St Louis County on Rombach's Pumpkin Farm.

UPDATE 10/14/09 ~ The stones have been removed and are now laying on pallets near an equipment shed.
UPDATE 10/18/09 ~ There is levee work and when the work is complete, the stones are to be returned, and some stones and fragments have been returned.
UPDATE 10/11 ~ Stones have been returned to a bump-out on the levee w/a fence around the area. It is adjacent to the Monarch-Chesterfield Levee Trail.
