Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 (currently in Eternal Love) 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. This should verify location and if someone really does not have a marker.

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.
Thanks!

Janis

Find A Grave Memorial# 68215383


Could you tell me the meaning of the Note? Who made it or what he pertained to? I am trying to contact the cemetery to see if there is any paper work that would help me determine if this is her grave. Thanks for all you do and God bless you for your efforts. Sincerely Judy

Ernest Alfred Johnson at Oak Hill Cemetery
Hello,

I was able to obtain more information in case you happen to revisit Oak Hill. My great uncle Ernest Alfred Johnson is buried there in Block 17/prayer section, lot 818, section S.

The nice lady who helped with this info said there are many Cox individual around Ernest but no other Johnsons with him. She did not know whether he has a monument.

I cannot thank you enough for all of your help.
