RE: David Brundage
The info likely came from records entered by "jnkhuff".

RE: David Brundage
Yes, those cemeteries are listed on here. The Secretary of State's office has a fairly complete set of prison records, unfortunately it's not on-line. Those might contain the final disposition of the body.

The snag with Old City and Woodland cemeteries is that they were both privately owned, although the City eventually took them over. There are no known burial records for either except for a survey which was done in 1976 by the DAR. Those records only recorded graves with visible markers. So there are quite a few known burials (from death certificates) in both, but you have no way of knowing where they are actually buried.

If you know he was buried in Jefferson City then your only other "choices" would be St. Peters Cemetery I or St. Peters II if he was Catholic. SP I is pretty much gone. The land was unstable and most of the graves washed down into the Missouri River. I have a transcript for SP II and can check that if you think he might be there. Then there were several smaller cemeteries which were relocated due to highway construction. They were moved to Riverview Cemetery. If you'd like to check with them, their phone number is (573) 636-6713, but that would be a long shot. But that would be about it given the time frame listed.

If he died at MSP he wouldn't be in JC National or he'd be recorded as being there. The records are quite complete. Even "unknowns" are fully listed.

He's probably buried in an unmarked paupers grave in either Woodland or Old City. That's where MSP prisoners were buried back then.

In either case, if he's not listed then there is no marker to photograph.

She's not part of my family tree, but curiosity led me to to check. Looks like she was the daughter of James W. Yost (1829-1900) and Anna Weaver (1834-1863) and was married to James L. Popejoy. I don't recall seeing any other Popejoy's in the cemetery, but there were lots of Yosts.
