|Bio and Links|
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.

Thank you for creating Bagby memorials and for your great undertaking (no pun intended:-) at the cemetery.
|Annita||Ernest Alfred Johnson at Oak Hill Cemetery|
I was able to obtain more information in case you happen to revisit Oak Hill. My great uncle Ernest Alfred Johnson is buried there in Block 17/prayer section, lot 818, section S.
The nice lady who helped with this info said there are many Cox individual around Ernest but no other Johnsons with him. She did not know whether he has a monument.
I cannot thank you enough for all of your help.

Hi, I am looking for a headstone for Ellen Harper. She is Edward E. Harper's second wife. Edward E. Harper is one of the grave markers you have a picture of and he shares the headstone with his first wife Alma. I haven't been able to find anything on Ellen, the second wife, and was wondering if there is a headstone for her near Edward's headstone. Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

Janis, If you can get the pictures for me of these grave markers, it would make my day. I plan to make a trip up in the Spring to take pictures of them myself so no big deal if you can't. Think you again for the transfers and for the replies, Kaye
