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 Memories/Light with the Public Lots to come next) 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

Stephenson
Hi, I saw another message and I believe it said you had records of the Stephenson's buried in Oak Hill. My grandma, great grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, cousin, etc are buried there. I am the great granddaughter of Martha Stephenson and Thomas Burns. I have found some but not all of the Stephenson graves at Oak Hill. If you have info, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

Linda

83380743 was my high school chemistry teacher. One day he was leading a group of chemistry teachers on a bus tour and I just happened to have been designated to be their tour director. I would be honored to be able to add a decent biography to his memorial. His son died at age 48.

Albert Fred Newell was my mom's brother. Would I be able to have permission to use his tombstone photo in my ancestry online tree ? Thank you for taking it ! I've never gotten to see it, as he died before I was born.
