|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 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 all of the gardens except New Babyland and the Mausoleum. I did find some markers I missed the first time around and have posted them! Unless the burial is new, if a record doesn't show a marker, it probably does NOT have one. Being an older cemetery, some flat markers may be buried or tablets broken and not repaired. Some of the public lots are in ovegrown wooded areas also. I am trying to list under the inscription section if there is no marker. |
In Spring 2016, I plan on returning to the cemetery to walk with my spreadsheet and check each garden AGAIN by section/lot. Please let me know if you have a special request!
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.

My great-grandfather and my great-aunt. Thanks again for the transfer of Carrie Carleton Clark Reeves! If I could have the above transferred also I will have the whole set (so far as I can find).
I only now realized that Carrie Imo was fostered out to the Clark family because her mother Susan died three months after she was born.
Thanks for taking and posting the picture of Edgar Delk headstone. Gary
And of coarse, I would pleased to have the transfers....I'm sure my mother would appreciate that, thanks in advance- and excellent crossing paths with you!!

|Susan Ing||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.
|C Heilig||Carter family memorials - forwarded message|
I received this request for Mount Hope. I responded and said that I would try, but due to the status of the cemetery, it would be difficult. I'm sure she would appreciate any suggestions or help
# 115494468 & # 115494468
I would love to have pictures of my Aunt and Uncle, Bonnie Lee Crowell Carter her Find A Grave Memorial# is 115494468, & Vincent "Vince" Carter, whose Find A Grave Memorial# is 115494682. I have had a request in for over a year and I even made a trip up there this summer but had no luck at getting them. At the time I was there the cemetery office was closed due to water leakage, I was told, and they couldn't get inside to the files. The young lady gave me a phone number to call back and told me she would get me a picture as soon as she was able. The phone number is no longer in service.
I would appreciate so much if you could do this for me. I will be forever grateful.

Hope this finds you well. Thank you so much for taking the photo of my grandmothers headstone! I really appreciate it.
Through my college, our family used to visit these graves at Memorial Day. I would occasionally visit the graves while traveling on business in St. Louis. Now, I have not been there for at least a dozen years.
Thanks again from Chicagoland!
|Jerry Prouhet||Charle J Stephens|
Hi Embalmu2, thank you very much for the photo of Charles J Stephens' Gravestone. I hope you don't mind, but I am going to put in another Photo Request for his Gravestone. Could you please clean off the lower left hand corner where his birth date is at, so we can see his full birth date. Also, do you have his Burial Plot location?
Thank you very much for your time, Jerry
