Bio and Links
Bio Photo *Please read regarding transfers!: Happy to do transfers but PLEASE request through the transfer request link. You will get them much more quickly than through mail. Thanks!*

I have always been intrigued with the rich history found in cemeteries. My mom always took me (since I was a very small child) with her to put flowers on family members' graves and I suppose that started my love of cemeteries. I am a licensed funeral director/embalmer in MO and IL. I have personally photographed all of the markers at Oak Hill in Kirkwood and am now re-walking each garden to catch any that may have been missed or covered as well. I am using an interment spread sheet that I made for each garden made from the interment books. I have rewalked all of the gardens except New Babyland and the Mausoleum. I did find some markers I missed the first time around and have posted them! Unless the burial is new, if a record doesn't show a marker, it probably does NOT have one. Being an older cemetery, some flat markers may be buried or tablets broken and not repaired. Some of the public lots are in ovegrown wooded areas also. I am trying to list under the inscription section if there is no marker.

In Spring 2016, I plan on returning to the cemetery to walk with my spreadsheet and check each garden AGAIN by section/lot. Please let me know if you have a special request!

I have high numbers because I enjoy spending time in the boneyards with my camera, not because I am a records hoarder! This being said...

*Please note, I will not link family members I have no connection to personally. I don't want to assume and possibly place inaccurate information as fact. If you send me a request to link, I will transfer the record to you so don't be surprised!
*Please ask my permission before using my photos. I am happy to let you use them for ancestry purposes.
