I own a historic house built by Horace Bixby in 1877 in Lafayette Square, St. Louis. My daughter Katherine and I started a "Headstone for Horace" fund because his grave has a barely-visible ground level marker with only his name. We feel that Horace should be properly honored since he was one of the best steamboat pilots/captains on the Mississippi, a distinguished gunboat commander in the Civil War, and mentor of Mark Twain. If anyone would like to be part of getting a headstone for Horace, please contact me at larryheugatter@gmail.com. We set up a fund for donors. An historic-minded monument company owner would be ideal! Thank you,- Larry Heugatter
