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

I have photo-documented Sts. Peter & Paul and New Mount Sinai Cemeteries 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.

HOWEVER, if you send me an edit that includes a question, please make sure your email address is available on your page, so I can respond.

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.

Lately I have received messages asking for additional information on a memorial I have added. I am happy to help, but if you do not provide an email address or have your messages turned off, there is no way for me to respond.

RE: # 47764021
Oh my! I am sorry... after clicking on it and making it larger I see now that the stone belongs to Joseph. How sad. I am always saddened when someone doesn't have a stone, I often wonder if their close family members loved them enough. Thank you for answering me. Carmen

I was wondering if you could please take a closeup photo of Rose Hoh Oesterle's stone. I can't read it or see what it says. Thanks so much! :)

Am searching for an Oliver T Hormann who was married to Margaret A/Anna Margaret Laffey in 1913. Could your Oliver be the one? Margaret is in my line, trying to find info on her and her descendants. Thanks

Thank you so much for the photo of where James is buried. Even though he doesn't have a marker, I love having the photo of where he is resting.

Oh dear Thank you I will call Calvary Cemetery and Mausoleum and see if she is there this is an mystery. From the records I found he didn't purchase stone just paid for burial so I may not ever find her. So there no way she in an unmark grave? ;-(
