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 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 the following gardens in case you are still looking for a marker: All Public Lots, Eternal Love, Faith, Missouri, Riverview, and most of Hope. 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

If you would be so kind as to add them so the family can be linked, thank you. Alfreds middle name is John, I know this from some Jackson family history notes my grandmother left.

Re: The Baumgardt's
Hello - Thank you so much for all of the time and efforts in taking the picture of my grandfather's brother and his wife headstone. Since I reside in northern WI and no longer drive, this is a wonderful service that you provided. I've tried to get their obits also from the St. Louis Library but have not had any luck as they do not respond. Any idea of how to proceed?
Thank you again for your kindness.
Diane
