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 from St Louis Calvary.

Don't you ever turn a photo over to see if anything is written on the back?

Please Read the Cemetery Main Page. Maybe they have an online burial search.

**Please do not leave--messages for edits on my the page, please use the Suggest a correction/Edit. This will provide an exact link to the memorial in question.

On July 8, 2017 I did a spread sheet upload that was added 4-6 times... not my fault, working on it. - I think that i have deleted all the excess, over 1400, yeah fun.

I will not add cut and paste Obituary's to anyone's page, see the Find a Graves rules. Be original. But I will posted the Newspaper, Date and page location. Nor will I add surviving family, per FaG guidelines.

I am still new to the whole genealogy thing. I have only been doing for about 20+ years. I am hoping that my children will continue the search.

If you want one of my photos, that is fine, but I Do Want Credit. - Site the Source.

Thank you.
Just another twig in the tree.

Myself and several others, including Elaine and Sharon, do most of the Photo requests for the St. Louis Calvary Cemetery. We share a google document to do this. We will typically look at every request. Which means - we will check to see if is duplicate, see if they are really buried there (see the archdiocese website) and then enter it onto the spreadsheet. Which is sorted usually by sections. It is a Very large cemetery (470 Acres 450,000 burials, and 27 miles of roads), so we do sometime wait until there are more than one request in that section.

Most, but not all, have already been added into Find a grave by TVFTH, Katie, Sharon or myself. BTW, they are terrible spellers/ transcribers, so be creative. For the most part they are/were added originally, according to how the Archdioceses spelled their name. Death dates that are just Month and year are based off of the persons burial date.--

Sections 5 & 16, and all their lots, do not have maps, so those have to be walked, but they were VERY sparsely marked. And none of us like them because so few are marked, so it actually makes it very difficult.
-Section 10 is done, there are only maybe 20 stones. ---Section 37 are re-internments from Washington Park Cemetery, so all there "death" dates are actually there re-interment dates, as we get photo request we adjust their death dates to their true death dates.

Interment numbers don't mean anything. They were added with a computer update, and they are working on another one, which could change those numbers. The original records don't use them, they are in date/alphabetical order.

Then we each have our favorite sections to do. 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 :)

RE: Withington @ StL Calvary
Kathie, Thank you for the photos for the Withingtons, Smiths and related families from Calvary Cemetery in Saint Louis! They all branch out from my Ferner line, back to my great-grandfather. I was able to check dates based on the cemetery information you provided. Great work! Very much appreciated! Jane

RE: Charles Brooks
you just hit a sore spot of other contributors creating memorials without checking ahead of time.

I found you cannot just enter the name and death year. Some memorials were created with no dates or just the birth info.

Again am sorry for being so rude in my initial reply.

RE: Charles Brooks
Just tell me why he created the duplicate. Is he family? That would be the only reason I would agree to delete my memorial. if he is someone who is out to create memorials for the numbers and not even take the time to check to see if there is already one created. I Would even maybe agree if the duplicate was created on the same day as mine, but four days later is in violation of the Find a Grave rules.

I am not sure what Find a Grave rules you and the individual that decided to duplicate this hero'so memorial. My memorial for Airman Brooks has almost the same info, just in the appropriate area, like his plot location and Inscription. So you need to send your deletion request to the right contributor.

Thank you,
