Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been intrigued with the rich history found in cemeteries. My mom always took me (since I was a very small child) with her to put flowers on family members' graves and I suppose that started my love of cemeteries. I am a licensed funeral director/embalmer in MO and IL. I have personally photographed all of the markers at Oak Hill in Kirkwood and am now re-walking each garden (currently in Eternal Love) to catch any that may have been missed or covered as well. I am using an interment spread sheet that I made for each garden made from the interment books. This should verify location and if someone really does not have a marker.

I have high numbers because I enjoy spending time in the boneyards with my camera, not because I am a records hoarder! This being said...

*Please note, I will not link family members I have no connection to personally. I don't want to assume and possibly place inaccurate information as fact. If you send me a request to link, I will transfer the record to you so don't be surprised!
*Please ask my permission before using my photos. I am happy to let you use them for ancestry purposes.
Thanks!

Janis

Earnest Alfred Johnson
I appreciate the photo of Earnest Alfred Johnson's place of burial, even it it is unmarked. He was my great uncle. I know this took quite a lot of effort on your part. Thanks again!

Hope this finds you well. Thank you so much for taking the photo of my grandmothers headstone! I really appreciate it.

Through my college, our family used to visit these graves at Memorial Day. I would occasionally visit the graves while traveling on business in St. Louis. Now, I have not been there for at least a dozen years.

Thanks again from Chicagoland!

Hi,
I've come across the headstone you photographed (92528736)for McCormack, Edward and Mabel. First, I would like to express my appreciation for your kindness in taking these pictures and posting them for families to see. Second, I believe this is my grandfather's headstone. I don't know if you have any other information that you can add, but if you do, I would love to have it.
Thank you again,
Irene

Thank you so much for sending the Walker family over to me. I am still missing their daughter Maria Florian #66813465. You sent me a Marcia Florian, a child buried with her mother, but do not know if she is buried with Maria or another Florian.

Again thank you.

Hi Embalmu2, thank you very much for the photo of Charles J Stephens' Gravestone. I hope you don't mind, but I am going to put in another Photo Request for his Gravestone. Could you please clean off the lower left hand corner where his birth date is at, so we can see his full birth date. Also, do you have his Burial Plot location?

Thank you very much for your time, Jerry
