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 Ancestry.com 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.

You were correct about these two infants. There were no headstones.

|nixwg||RE: Julius & Joseph Michalke|
Thanks. I'm familiar with this section and didn't have much hope of finding a stone. I copied down other people in the two rows that these children are in. I hoped to at least determine that I was in the correct location. After that I'll let the requester know there is no stone.
We swapped emails quite awhile ago and you said you had just finished photographing the entire cemetery. My compliments on the excellent photography. Too often people do that by zinging from one stone to the next and not even bending over to get a close-up.

Thank you for all the work you do.
May I ask for a transfer of management for Thomas Torrance. He is a direct ancestor of mine.

|John and Courtney Atkinson||RE: Barbara Atkinson Frese|
Thank you for the email. Yes, I had originally had her buried somewhere else as the family had given me the wrong location. I'm not sure how two memorials were created, but I deleted the second one (both were mine). Thanks again for bringing my sister's memorials to my attention.

Thank you, Katie. Love you, Connie.
|Connie Hilker||RE: Alan Hilker|
I am so grateful for your help recently with my father's Find a grave. Then of course the ball dropped. Thanks for your sympathy. I just wondered and probably know that you are local. I went to St. John the Baptist (you know that's the favorite question in St. Louis). Feel free to communicate thru Find a grave or to email@example.com. I believe she will be interred on 7/25/16. Of course she will be in the niche with dad. Info for you: Mary Frances (Bilyeu) Hilker, born 3/26/1938 in Paragould, Ark. Death 7/6/2016 in St. Louis County, Mo. I will fill in the rest. Her name may be inscribed soon. Thank you so much.

Hi; you added a obituary to this memorial and another contributor notified me of the error. If you note, the death date is different and he was only 17 so probably not father of the many people mentioned.
Due to this information, could you please remove it from this memorial.
|prosecutrix||Adam Torrence sr|
Where did you get information referencing his death. There is book written about the battle at his tavern that indicates that he was murdered that day at the tavern by the British.
|Connie Hilker||Alan Hilker|
My mother, his wife died yesterday. how can I get a memorial set-up for her? Thank you for your help. I am 1st born child, Connie.
|Scott Stilinovic||Sam Semurino|
You can transfer Sam Semurino to me. He was married to my great aunt and had two children with her. I have been unable to find any other info on him or any other family members.
Interesting this is that his last name is misspelled on his tombstone...should be Simurino (both COD and Cemetery records confirm).
