Shady Grove Cemetery
Raegan: Hello - I have become interested in this cemetery recently and wanted to thank you for your work there. I am not related to any of the people buried there but am a volunteer for find-a-grave here in Cape Girardeau. This cemetery fascinates me and I have connected several of the people buried there with those here at Fairmount Cemetery. I found additional information for several people (right now Charles and Mary Jane Wilson but others will follow). I will send edits if you would please add this to their memorial pages. The more information we put out there, the more it will help others and it is a way of honoring them. don't you agree? Thanks. Ruth

Hargraves in New Bethel Cemetery
I have been working on the records for New Bethel Cemetery for the last year and would like to see if you would transfer Sarah Jane McCain Hargraves 29036244 and Benjamin Hargraves 29036182 to me so I can add personal info. If you would rather not, please email me so I can give you the info to add. I live in the St. Louis area but when visiting in Jackson, have been taking pictures at New Bethel, Iona and McLain cemeteries. Thanks.

Barks chapel cemetery
Hi Raegan, Do you know if there is more than one Barks Chapel cemetery, and if so, where they are located, etc?

Hi Raegan,
I saw where someone wanted a picture of Benjamin Buchheit's stone. They won't find it in Applecreek. He is buried in Applecreek, MO in Perry Co. not the cemetery Applecreek in Cape Co. I think the name of the cemetery is St. Josephs. Applecreek Cem, Applecreek Township, Applecreek the town all get very confusing. Also Applecreek Presby Church Cem is in Cape Co., but sometimes when people say buried in Applecreek, they mean the town in Perry Co. Hope this helps.

Shane Symes
Missouri Bell Baker
Hi Raegan, I am searching for the man who married Missouri Bell. The marriage record states a G. H. Baker. But that is all I can find so far. Do you happen to know if Missouri is buried by her husband? I know she had a child die young named Rossie Martin Baker. Thanks for any help you can provide. ~ Shane

English Cemetery Cape Girardeau County
Hi, I was wondering if you could tell me how to get to the English Cemetery on the Houck Farm. I would also like to know who, if anybody, I need to contact to gain permission to visit it.

Thanks for the HATCHER photos at Apple Creek cemetery. Old, difficult stones to read but you did great and we appreciate it.

RE: Roy Seidenstricker
I meant to say that Yes, Roy and Wm Louis are brothers. This is great because I don't have any info on Louis after 1930 and don't know who he married or any of his descendants.

Looking forward to hearing from you

Added by TLH on Feb 07, 2010 11:06 AM

Roy was born in 1920 in Ashley, Washington Co.,Ill

I have lots of Seidenstricker family research. Not to mention, I know Roy and have since I was a little girl. My Aunt is married to one of his son's.

Please email me at:

And we can discuss.

Thank you for fulfilling my photo request and for taking that extra mile in Charles, Lestie, Lane and Louise. Have a wonderful weekend.

Thank you!
Thank you very much for taking the time to go to Fairmount Cemetery in Cape Girardeau to take photos of the graves of Esco and Gladys Langston. They were my great uncle and great aunt, who lived across the street from us in Flint, MI when I was growing up.

I'm in southern California now and for the past 34 years, and haven't been to the Cape since 1989.

Old Sides Cemetery - Cape G. County MO

Thanks for reminding me (by your email) that I'd not visited the "findagrave" site in a long time. The above associated link should have taken you to the listings for "Sides Cemetery" and also provides a Map of the location near I-55! So, I'm assuming your question is more specific than that; i.e., property owners name, etc. The old cemetery is on a slight rise of land just off the the county road paralleling the Interstate which is easily visible from the cemetery. I believe it was called the "Bogenpohl" farm the last time I was there; a couple of years now. The Bogenpohl family (if I've remembered his name correctly) has been extremely cooperative and willing to allow us to open the gate that leads into his pasture and drive up to the knoll on which the old cemetery is located. He allowed my cousin to put up light fencing around the plot as an attempt at saving the stones from the livestock. It has helped at that task but the undergrowth is worse now since the farm animals don't graze as readily on the grass, weeds and sprouts surrounding the stones! I've mown it a couple of times and my cousin several times in the past four or five years but I think perhaps we've both about given up the task. I'm 400 miles away and my interested cousin lives in the St. Louis area. We usually just stop at the farm house or the smaller "tenant" house near the gate on the same side as the cemetery and request to enter their property. As I said, they've always been extremely kind to us when they understand we're descendants of several of the folks buried on their farm. In my case my great great great grandfather Peter Hinkle and ggggrandmother Amelia Clotfelter Hinkle are buried there along with others that are probably also some kin to me . . . a Lewis Hinkle and his wife. Many / most of the stones have been knocked down by animals over time and a few have been buried or almost covered with soil. It's a sad situation!

Good luck. If you are nearby the area I hope you can find the plot and visit. It's sad but it won't get any better as the years go by I'm afraid. There's very little in the way of "public" help in situations like this so unless a family can organize (an finance) some private, personal care and make the proper arrangements with the owners, it would be a difficult task for one or two people!

I hope the map link works for you because that's probably the easiest way to find the place. I can probably give you more detailed instructions though, but will leave that for another time as I'm answering your query a bit late in the day! I usually access the area from I-55, turning west on KK. It's only a mile or two . . . short distance anyway to where a county road turns off to the south. Just before or after crossing a barely visable bridge over a small stream. Another mile or so south you must take another turn to the left which heads straight as a stick back toward the Interstate. There is a barrier, of course, as one approaches the Interstate but the road makes a right angle turn to the south. Keep an eye out to your right as you drive south for a grove of trees on a knoll just west of the road. Signs on the driveway entry to the main farmhouse on your left (east) used to say "Bogenpohl". Can't say if they still do. To your right is the smaller dwelling house and the gate entering the pasture and path up to the grove of trees and cemetery.

Feel free to contact me via another email if I need to clarify this hodge podge of info (likely, considering the hour at which I write!).
