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.|
**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.
My Paternal Great Grand father and Mother came from Scotland (but met in Illinois) and my Maternal Family is from Connecticut from the 1652ish. I am in the St. Louis, MO area.
I am working on the Stewart, Robertson, Sage and English Families currently.
Photography is relaxing for me...so 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.

St. Louis Calvary Cemetery
General Calvary Map
Myself and several others, including Elaine, Sharon and Mr Tom, do most of the Photo requests for the St. Louis Calvary Cemetery. We share a google document to do this. I typically look at every request. Which means - I 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.
Sections 5 & 16 do not have maps, so those have to be walked, but they were VERY sparsely marked.
Section 10 is done, there are only maybe 20 stones.
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 :)

Thanks for looking & for your advice. She died in the Buckingham Hotel Annex fire, Kingshighway & W. Pine, 5 Dec 1927. It was arson.
I must think..... Just this week I had trouble with an McSomeone & thought it very odd. You've really taught me a lot.

Thanks Kathie for taking this photo for me. I really appreciate it!
|Anna Jaech||RE: Emile L @ StL Calvary|
This photo is so poignant; it should give us all pause.... 1864 was the worst year of the war in Missouri. July, when she died, was the worst month when the most violence was done to citizens by bushwhackers & guerillas - Missourians ruining Missourians. Is there a way to submit photos to Find A Grave so that more can see them? Is there a "top ten" of the year? This could be #1.

Thank you ever so much for your time, travels, and the photo at Calvary Cemetery.
