|Bio and Links|
I am still new to the whole genealogy thing. I have only been doing for about 15 years. I am hoping that my children will continue the search.|
**If I posted a picture for a photo request, Please check the Caption on the photograph for more information. Especially if, there is a general lot shot.
My Paternal Great Grand father and Mother came from Scotland (but met in Illinois) and my Maternal Family is from Connecticut from the 1652ish. I am in the St. Louis, MO area.
I am working on the Stewart, Robertson, Sage and English Families currently.
Photography is relaxing for me...so I take photos and add them. There is cemetery that I am working on that across the street from my children's school. If you want one of my photos, that is fine, but I DO WANT CREDIT. I however would prefer that they are not added to Ancestry. It is more that you might credit me, but the person that acquires it from you might not.
PLEASE -Turn on your messages. You are missing out on A LOT of info that people may want to share with you.
Please remember, when you start researching a new geographic area, that those living in the area, probably know more than you, but there are some that don't. Like St. Louis City and St. Louis County are very separate, but very connected. Please look at an actual map that has city and county boarders, that is dated for that era, NOT a current map. For example, much of what is warehouses now by river, used to be housing.

St. Louis Calvary Cemetery
General Calvary Map
Myself and several others, including Elaine, Sharon and Mr Tom, do most of the Photo requests for the St. Louis Calvary Cemetery. We share a google document to do this. I typically look at every request. Which means - I will check to see if is duplicate, see if they are really buried their (see the archdiocese website) and then enter it onto the spreadsheet. Which is sorted usually by sections.
Sections 5 & 16 do not have maps, so those have to be walked, but they were VERY sparsely marked.
Section 10 is done, there are only maybe 20 stones.
Then we each have our favorite sections to do.
Most, but not all ,have already been added into Find a grave by TVFTH. BTW, they are terrible spellers, so be creative. It is a Very large cemetery, so we do sometime wait until there are more than one request in that section.
If you have any questions about St Louis Calvary I will be happy to try to answer it. If I don't know, I will try to find the answer for you.
Happy Hunting :)

I contacted them and she explain the layout to me and it is like you said. Millie and Gus are together and Guss Jr. near by not in the immediate area. Also the last name are spelled differently and the buried them using their nicknames. LOL Thank you, you have been very helpful. VeaBug

|geddyupgang||RE: Gus Matthews l# 47870137|
Thank you! I received my information the cemetery and the Archdiocese. I was told by them that, the 3 of them was there, Gus Jr. beside Millie & Augustus, with Millie buried on top of Augustus, her husband. I would like to someday get a marker for their grave site. Thank you and stay blessed.
I'm not sure if I thanked you yet - but if I haven't - thanks for the picture of the Keith grave :)

Thank you for the photo of Gus Matthews Jr. grave site. I knew that there was a marker there and hopefully in the future I will be able to get one for him and his mother and father who are buried together beside him. Thank you so much for all your troubles. GOD bless you, VeaBug!
