Note: Not sure if this is the same Alexander Johnston buried in Oak Grove. Death date is closely the same. Cemetery records show death date as December 28, 1912 but that could have been the burial date same as on the death certificate. No date of birth given in the cemetery records. Also it says burial in Alma, not St. Louis but that could have been in error.
