Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 have personally photographed all of the markers at Oak Hill in Kirkwood and am now re-walking each garden to catch any that may have been missed or covered as well. I am using an interment spread sheet that I made for each garden made from the interment books. I have rewalked the following gardens in case you are still looking for a marker: All Public Lots, Eternal Love, Faith, Missouri, Riverview,Hope, Prayer, Memory, and Light. I still have the following gardens to verify: Kirkwood, Greentree, Companion, Peace, Dogwood, and Oaks. This should verify location and if someone really does not have a marker. I am trying to list under the inscription section if there is no marker.

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.

John C. Watson
Thank you for attempting to fulfill my photo request.
All that you have done to make these resting places accessible to families scattered all over is much appreciated!
I will be contacting the office to see if they have any more information to help me determine if this is my John C. Watson. The death date is about the time my great great grandfather disappeared.

RE: Vollmers at Friedens
Mr. Plotz I assume. Oh yes. He gets frustrated where the records say people are sometimes and I know he has gotten a couple markers in the past. The owner of Friedens is not all that helpful at all. He lives out of state and I have only spoken to him a couple times. I have his e-mail too and he is not good at even getting with me there too. This is not a great suggestion but if he knows what family lots they should be in and I am sure he will tell you. I would suggest just placing them without the cemeteries assistance. I know the last couple he got were small angled upright type and other than weight and some guidance, he should be there and just place them. You hardly ever see anyone there. Lake Charles workers does his few burials I believe. Some relation there. Even the grass cutters are hired out.
