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.

St. Louis Calvary Cemetery

General Calvary Map

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, 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 :)

Waugh & Zoe Tracy Benedict
I have deleted Mr. Waugh & asked for a merger for Zoe as the article is helpful. I don't know how I failed to find Waugh, but I remember how I found Zoe. I was reading an old article about the Faribault School for the Deaf which was seeded by the Missouri School. Mrs Benedict was identified as a STL Papin & I thought, "What a small world," & added her to the article I was writing. At that time I did not know the name Tracy. Thank you for calling this to my attention. I do try!

Strong? That is baffling. When I get a moment I will look up the death certificate.
