Bio and Links
Bio Photo Taphophilia: a passion for and enjoyment of cemeteries.

I have photo-documented Sts. Peter & Paul and New Mount Sinai Cemeteries in St. Louis. If you are aware of errors in any of my entries, please let me know. PLEASE USE THE "EDIT" LINKS AND PROVIDE YOUR MEMBER NUMBER (located next to your name on your member page) if requesting a transfer.

PLEASE NOTE: Because I receive a lot of email, I typically do not reply when sent an edit - just check back in a couple days and you should see it. I usually make edits within a couple days. If it has been over a week, please resend as I may not have received it.

HOWEVER, if you send me an edit that includes a question, please make sure your email address is available on your page, so I can respond.

Please don't add death certificates that are readily available on-line to memorials.

In addition to adding my family, I enter other graves. I am always happy to transfer a grave to a family member, or to update the grave as requested.

Families I am researching for my family include Mueth, Heidenfelder, Bockius, Buehler, Danneman, Frank/Franck, Freymyer, Meurer and Zieger--primarily found in the U.S. in St. Louis and Southern Illinois.

My husband's last name is Torrence. For him I am researching Torrence, Findley, Watt, Comstock, Peterson, Norton, Brown, Bieth, Sentman, Ritchie and Sixbury--from all over the Northeast.

Please ask permission before posting my personal family photographs or biographical material I have written from my memorial pages on this site to or any other website or personal webpages.

Lately I have received messages asking for additional information on a memorial I have added. I am happy to help, but if you do not provide an email address or have your messages turned off, there is no way for me to respond.

You have two Find A Grave for the same person.

You don't need to do anything if this is what you wanted but I thought that I would just let you know just in case you didn't remember doing it since did A LOT of FAGs.

Walter Ford photo request
I understand there is no marker so that's why I placed the note on my first request for a photo. I have placed another request for a photo of his final resting place. Since you already have conformed with the office and have his plot location perhaps you could fulfill my second request. Thanks in advance!

RE: Joe F. Heidenfelder #287108
Our family had just watched Pearl Harbor before I connected with Joe's memorial. Reading his Bio really hit home for all of us, at that moment. Like our family we have very patriotic & caring men & women who love our country. I hope & pray that their spirit continues on in our next generations. Thanks for so much for responding. Our youngest was asking if he received any special awards or medals? You don't have to answer but he was curious & he's watching as I'm typing. Have a restful Sunday.
Take care & God bless.

RE: Torrance
Roger that, good stuff. Thx for messaging me. Holler if you ever need anything.

RE: Torrance
Thanks Katie, I walked the entire cemetery and took all for ones that had headstones and didn't have pictures yet. Added memorials for those that weren't entered. The trip was a long time coming. The Cross, Lake, and Caswell families are all my 3x-4x great grandparents and then being such a smaller community I am finding related into other families buried there as well. Are you related to any there?

I guess I should tell you too I will have more edits coming as I do more research.

Hi Katie,

Thanks for checking for me. I only added the d certificate to show that he was buried there. Must be an unmarked grave. Thanks for all you do for findagrave!
