Bio Photo Taphophilia: a passion for and enjoyment of cemeteries.

I am in the process of photo-documenting Sts. Peter & Paul cemetery in St. Louis. If you are aware of errors in any of my entries, please let me know. PLEASE USE THE "EDIT" LINKS AND PROVIDE YOUR MEMBER NUMBER (located next to your name on your member page) if requesting a transfer.

PLEASE NOTE: Because I receive a lot of email, I typically do not reply when sent an edit - just check back in a couple days and you should see it. I usually make edits within a couple days. If it has been over a week, please resend as I may not have received it.

Please don't add death certificates that are readily available on-line to memorials.

In addition to adding my family, I enter other graves. I am always happy to transfer a grave to a family member, or to update the grave as requested.

Families I am researching for my family include Mueth, Heidenfelder, Bockius, Buehler, Danneman, Frank/Franck, Freymyer, Meurer and Zieger--primarily found in the U.S. in St. Louis and Southern Illinois.

My husband's last name is Torrence. For him I am researching Torrence, Findley, Watt, Comstock, Peterson, Norton, Brown, Bieth, Sentman, Ritchie and Sixbury--from all over the Northeast.

Please ask permission before posting my personal family photographs or biographical material I have written from my memorial pages on this site to or any other website or personal webpages.

RE: Rose Hoffelder Benish
Great idea! I'm sure it will be helpful, and save you time in the future.

Thanks again,

RE: Rose Hoffelder Benish
Well that makes perfect sense! I guess I should have read the entire memorial to see if it said that. I did check to see if there was anything added with the photo, and I didn't see anything.

The photo uploaded to Rose's memorial is the photo of Mary Hoffelder Greenwald's marker.
Just a heads up!

Joseph Geisler Photo Request
Thank you Katie for trying. Im so sorry you searched under every nook and cranny for Joseph. I know what a task that must have been. I guess he is there according to the cemetery records right? Thank you again, Sue Knudsen

I have to apologize. I thought you had a Dorothy Stake as Bruce's mother and not his wife. His wife was a Dorothy as was his step mother. I have sent in edits to tie them back together again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Bruce Standish Stake is not the son of Dorothy C. Stake, he would be the step-son.

His real mother is Ella F. Standish Stake (Find A Grave Memorial# 125093169)

This explains his middle name.

FYI, Ella is my grandmother's first cousin and her dad was killed in the Civil War the day Ella was born.

Thanks for your help,

Thank you Katie. Im so sorry you were unable to locate the headstone for Theresa Von Dach. In looking at the profile page someone put this on in 2010 I believe. I wonder where they acquired their information if you found a different name listed in this place. Thank you again, Sue K
