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

Please Read the Cemetery Main Page. Maybe they have an online burial search .

Most Defunct Cemetery have No Heastones.

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.

Photography is relaxing for 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.

Thank you.

General Calvary Map

St. Louis Archdiocese Burial Search

Myself and several others, including Elaine and Sharon, do most of the Photo requests for the St. Louis Calvary Cemetery. We share a google document to do this. We will typically look at every request. Which means - we 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.

Death dates that are just Month and year are based off of the persons burial date.

-Sections 5 & 16, and all their lots, do not have maps, so those have to be walked, but they were VERY sparsely marked. And none of us like them because so few are marked, so it actually makes it very difficult.
-Section 10 is done, there are only maybe 20 stones.
-Section 37 are re-internments from Washington Park Cemetery, so all there "death" dates are actually there re-interment dates, as we get photo request we adjust their death dates to their true death dates.
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/ transcribers, so be creative. It is a Very large cemetery (470 Acres 400,000 burials, and 27 miles of roads), 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 :)

RE: Louis Ames 52281023
I am confused about the mistake? Louis Ames was Laroue Eugene Ames, he went by Louis at times. He was married 3 times and I have verified this is him. His mother was Armina Marie Hamlin and his father was Eugene Eri Ames, as shown on the death certificate.

If you would like to contact me, my email address is:

Thank you,

RE: Scaletta
Oh wow that is interesting.......thank you for the additional info! I have not had a chance to look yet. I usually work on this on the weekend. I teach high school and things have been crazy at the beginning plus my two daughters started school too. I am always interested in any new info. Take care, Jessica :)

Thank you very much for the Salvatore Scaletta photo. He is related to my husband's Italian side. I know you mentioned where he was, but you didn't happen to see any other Scaletta names in the area? I don't know anything about this branch. Just hoping. My mother's grandmother's side is also buried here. Who would have thought that? Much appreciated, Jessica

Thank you for looking for Willie's gravestone. I understand from your message there is no stone on his grave.

RE: Emilie Schuette
I had no idea that many of my dear relatives were buried in that cemetery. O God bless you, Kathie!
I am welling up, just thinking about all of them. Again, my dearest thanks.

gertrude and frank's headstones are the names on the stones that you posted on her site today.

I guess she does not have a stone. Thanks anyway for trying and for all you do.
