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.

re vera grau findlay
i removed photo. I do not agree. everyone need to be remembered. I figured if there is not headstone, flowers should be appropriate, but some people are extra picky and too sensitive. sorry if I offended you but my family means much to me and I feel if they are related to me they deserve my recognition as such including flowers and memories.

Julia Droste Saake #47768982
Hi, Katie,

Julia Droste Saake's husband in Joseph, not Frank Saake. Frank Saake apparently is her father-in-law. I'll attach her death certificate as a photo to her memorial.

Frank Droste was Julia's father and Mary Hemkens (misspelled on her death certificate) was her mother.

(Not sure which Joseph in the same cemetery is her husband. Will let you know if I take time to find out.)

Joseph Weber
Find A Grave Memorial# 47781265. I was able to have this name corrected by using the edit feature but it still says "daughter". He was male. His death certificate also says male and Joseph P. Weber.

Request for transfer of memorial
My name is Angela Piva-Key. I would enjoy managing the memorials of Valentine Eckerle and Rosa Hartmann Eckerle and their children: Barbara Eckerle and Elizabeth Eckerle. Valentine and Rosa are my Great Grandparents (my Father's mother's parents). I currently manage Margaret Eckerle Piva's who is my grandmother, their daughter. If there are any other Eckerle's you manage or Piva's (St. Louis) I would be happy to manage those as well. If the transfer is possible, I would greatly apprectiate it. Thank you very much for all you do and have done for Findagrave.
Angela Piva-Key.
