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 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. I have rewalked the following gardens in case you are still looking for a marker: All Public Lots, Eternal Love, Faith, Missouri, Riverview,Hope, Prayer, Memory, and Light. I still have the following gardens to verify: Kirkwood, Greentree, Companion, Peace, Dogwood, and Oaks. This should verify location and if someone really does not have a marker. I am trying to list under the inscription section if there is no 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.

John C. Watson
Thank you for attempting to fulfill my photo request.
All that you have done to make these resting places accessible to families scattered all over is much appreciated!
I will be contacting the office to see if they have any more information to help me determine if this is my John C. Watson. The death date is about the time my great great grandfather disappeared.
