I was born and raised in St. Louis which makes me a die-hard Cardinals fan. I've always been interested in history and geneology, and in particular the preservation and documentation of old cemeteries. Often the old headstones is the only documentation of these peoples lives.
At the moment I am attempting to photo document Lakewood Park Cemetery in St. Louis. If you see errors please use the edit tab provided. I will try to make any corrections or updates as soon as I can.
I am currently trying to document my own family's history and the families I am interested in are the Matlocks, Humes, Graddys and Gregorys.
Regarding the memorials I have created, I am more than willing to transfer these to those folks who are related and want to care for them. My goal is not to just create memorials and keep them under my name - it is to get these graves documented before the stones disintegrate. Even in the best kept cemeteries, documentation is lost, stones are worn away and the information regarding these folks may be gone for ever. So if you see a family member in my memorials, please let me know and I'll be glad to transfer.
