Michael Anderson
RE: McCaffery
Many many thanks. David and Alice Anderson went from Ireland to Missouri in 1885. Alice appears as a single person in the 1900 Census, working in the same house as Owen McCaffery whom she married a short time late. I cannot find a marriage. Their only child Eugene was born on 20 May 1902 when Alice would have been 37. Eugene married Gladiss /Gladys ( don't know surname) around 1925/6 but I cannot find a marriage for him either. Their only child Marion was born about 1927. Gladys, born 1903 and died July 1967 while Eugene died Jan 1974. I cannot find a burial place for either. I don't think that their daughter Marion married. Cannot find a death for her either. Eugene, Gladys and Marion appear in the 1930 and 1940 Census returns

David Anderson who died in 1899 is buried in a single grave in Calvary and because he is the only person buried there it seems unlikely that he married.

Thanks again for all your help Michael Anderson

I have been searching for 25 years for my ancestor Alice Anderson, left Ireland in 1885 and married James McCaffery, with one son Eugene. An older relative in Ireland thought that Alice went to Boston with her brother David. I spent years searching in the Boston area but no luck. Then on family search one night I picked Alice up in the 1900 Census for Missouri. She was working for a wealthy family as a servant and also working there was Owen McCaffery who would become her husband. I found their burial details last week and just tonight I stumbled on the photo of their grave which you had posted. Unbelievable!! Many many thanks. Alice's brother died at age 36 in 1899 and he too is buried in Calvary Section 016 lot 000R but there is no tombstone. Her son Eugene, died Jan 1974 and his wife Gladys died July 1967 but I cannot find a burial place. Will keep trying.
Best wishes from Ireland. MichaelAnderson

Thanks Kathie,
I'm originally from St. Louis and plan to be back soon. My ancestors are in Calvary and Jefferson Barracks National cemetery. J.W. Andrews is a civil war soldier that is in JB, died in 1901. I have that stone recorded.
I am still searching for his wife, Parmelia,(nee Tharp), from Ohio. When John returned home to Hocking Ohio he remarried so she probably died between 1861-65.
Thanks for all you do.

RE: O'Brien @ StL Calvary
Kathie, by all means wait until it thaws out. I am in Southeast Texas, we get an inch of snow once every ten years. I saw all the Tim's and Mary's and figured it was looking for a needle a haystack.
Mary 11/1923 is in a lot with a Tim 12/1910 - S20 /L1060 (and there is a 2nd Mary in here too.) They are husband & wife. Not sure who the second Mary is. Don't see her listed as a child, but could be one.
Tim 3/1939 is in a lot Nellie 4/1942 - S20/L1366.
This Tim is a son of above.
There are other children so maybe I will have located them before you make your trek.
I appreciate you taking the time to do this. I have photographed the cemeteries around here but mine are waaaaay smaller, 3000 graves.

RE: Ellen Surgue @ StL Calvary
I was only able to match up a few of them with people already in my tree, though some have same names but different years (probably child of previous generation, you know how they love to recycle the same names!) looks like I get to figure out where these fit as they are likely related - thanks again!

RE: wulf @ StL Calvary
Thank you, Kathie!
Kind of confusing..more things to research..her husband, John divorced her and remarried and moved back to New York. I cannot find him buried anywhere in New York and this might explain some members say he had several more children with his 2nd wife...

Thanks for your help!!

RE: Fred Seng # 47213261
Well I am glad they know because it is mind boggling there. Luckily we have people like you and Elaine to help out.

RE: Fred Seng # 47213261
His wife Martha is over there in section R and I don't remember a stone for her but she died 12 years later. I know you think the cemetery is sparse in places but I am sure we walk over several graves. I would like to go out there with some white paint and add to the numbers on the signs what lot number we are looking at. Such a shame that marking the area well was never or ever kept up. I don't think I want to be buried there because I might mistakenly get buried in the wrong spot I paid for.
