Cemetery notes and/or description:
Located in St. Louis, MO near Interstate 70 and the West Florissant Avenue exit, was founded for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. Louis in 1857 by St. Louis Archbishop Peter Richard Kenrick, who is interred within. The Catholic Cemetery, one of the largest in the nation, contains the burials of more than 300,000 persons, among them Civil War general William T. Sherman, freed slave Dred Scott (namesake of the famed pre-Civil War Supreme Court case), 1960's humanitarian physician Dr. Tom Dooley, famed American playwright Tennessee Williams, federal judge Clyde Cahill, Jr., and numerous Catholic bishops, clergy, religious, politicians, sporting and literary figures, and immigrants who were instrumental in the development of the City of St. Louis and the Roman Catholic Church there. The beautifully landscaped perpetual care cemetery features two public mausoleums, fountains, and impressive Victorian and Gilded Age monuments and mausoleums of noted area families. The cemetery is still heavily patronized, and burials and committals are generally scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Visiting hours are 8 a.m to 4:30 p.m. daily Mon. thru Sun., with office hours M-F 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
