Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have lived in the St. Francois County area of Missouri for 70+ years. That's big brother Tom on the left - HS days 1953.

I started out just walking old cemeteries - the history is there.

Got involved with tombstone photos for my own Family History and discovered others already at work doing the same and many were for my ancestors which were also their ancestors. since I was close to some cemeteries they were entering data for, I started taking photos for them as well's Catching.

I now try to check the request list before I go to a cemetery and if I find the tombstone
requested, I will certainly add it for you.

Tying our family members together with LINKS makes it so easy to move through the generations. Many who would otherwise lose interest, find it such smooth sailing they get caught up in the history they can see with just one more click.

Mel, you are so welcome! My grandson and I were looking for more to photograph but that particular cemetery has a long list. We've now alphabetized it and hope to do more soon. Deb Tucker

Per your suggestion, I changed the cemeteries for Clarence Hogenmiller. Since I put him in the cemetery his father is buried in, I deleted the 1st entry. The new entry is 171902124 for you to add the picture of his headstone. Thank you for your information.

Janet Mary Effrein - Memorial #64450933
I have a question about Janet Mary Effrein and her brother, Donald Stephen Effrein.

If Janet Mary Effrein was born 24 Dec 1931, according to her headstone, how can her brother, Donald Stephen Effrein Memorial #158790938 be born 18 Jan 1931, according to his obit.

If both were born in 1931, wouldn't they both be born on the same day and not a month apart. I ran into his obit at and then it dawned on me, Donald Stephen Effrein has to have wrong birth date in his obit.

They are distant relatives of my son-in-laws mother, Lois M. Dunphy-Brown.

Has anyone else noticed discrepancies with the birth dates? It just seemed odd to me.

Thank you for all the hard work you do with the cemetery records.
