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, and most of Hope. 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.

RE: A special
Hello Janis,

If you don't mind the transfers, I'll send you some requests. Although the family is in my tree, they are probably out side the Find A Grave Guidelines I won't mind tending the memorials as that could lead to personal contact with researchers I am unaware of.

Thanks for your assistance.

Benjamin "Gratz" and Mary
I am researching the Brown family of Missouri and asking if there is any way it can be determined if Mary Brown, #76537193 is the wife of Benjamin Gratz Brown # 18514. Perhaps you can determine that since you have been in the cemetery.
I have her name as Mary Hanson Gunn, Brown 1841-1888
Thank you very much.
