|Bio and Links|
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 am currently working to add records to Oak Hill by going through interment books and by walking the cemetery with my camera. I have personally photographed all of the markers in the gardens and have photographed all the grounds and am now re-walking the cem for clean up and pics I may have missed as well as trying to figure out to whom the illegibles belong. |
I am currently a funeral director in Belleville, IL and I have just begun photographing Mt. Hope Cemetery (another former Forever Cem)
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 so much for searching for my great uncle's monument. His death certificate lists place of burial as Oak Hill Cemetery in Kirkwood. I truly appreciate your effort!

Hi, I saw another message and I believe it said you had records of the Stephenson's buried in Oak Hill. My grandma, great grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, cousin, etc are buried there. I am the great granddaughter of Martha Stephenson and Thomas Burns. I have found some but not all of the Stephenson graves at Oak Hill. If you have info, I would appreciate it.

Thank you so much, Janis! I truly appreciate that you found the marker~~~ :)
83380743 was my high school chemistry teacher. One day he was leading a group of chemistry teachers on a bus tour and I just happened to have been designated to be their tour director. I would be honored to be able to add a decent biography to his memorial. His son died at age 48.

Albert Fred Newell was my mom's brother. Would I be able to have permission to use his tombstone photo in my ancestry online tree ? Thank you for taking it ! I've never gotten to see it, as he died before I was born.
