|I think findagrave.com is an amazing resource for finding lost family members. Because of this, I have focused on cemeteries that are no longer in existance. By using death certificates, newspapers and funeral home information, I am trying to help rebuild these cemeteries. I think each of these people need to have flowers on their site as they probably had few, if any, when they were buried.|
On the virtual cemeteries, I have started a list of people that lived in the Jackson County Home in Little Blue, Jackson, Missouri. The cemetery at the home was active until about 1927. During that time residents were buried at the home, at cemeteries that were paid for either by themselves or their families, or their bodies were donated to medical science. After 1927, all were either buried at private pay cemeteries or donated to medical science. An exception to this was when they were a patient at the Kansas City General Hospital. If they died there, they were sometimes buried at the Leeds Cemetery. Because so many were sent to medical science, I wanted to join all of them together in a virtual cemetery. Please visit them, leave them flowers and thank them for their donation of their bodies so we could enjoy better health.
Many people from all over the country came to the Kansas City TB Hospital (opened in 1915) that was located on the Municipal Farms. This is also where the Leeds Cemetery was located. Often, when the patients died, they were buried at Leeds Cemetery instead of being returned to where they were from. Because of this,you might find someone buried here with no connection to Kansas City, MO.
I will gladly change any incorrect information and am happy to transfer memorials to family members.

While researching a family member I come up with lots of dead ends. I see the name I am researching matches some of the details of a man buried at Leeds. You have gone a great step in including the death cert in your information but I am wondering if there would be anymore information associated with the individual in addition to the death cert?
