RE: Rose Hill Cemetery, Kirkwood, MO
This is really a puzzle for me. I checked St. Peter's Cemetery in Kirkwood, Missouri. Neither of my two relatives are listed as being buried there.

McElroy, John Leonidas 143813176
b. 1861 d. Sep. 30, 1902 and Bowman, Arcella 126217847
b. Jul. 2, 1885 d. Mar. 31, 1886

I did finally find Arcella Bowman buried in Oak Hill cemetery in Kirkwood, Missouri.

Are you sure she is buried in Fox Cemetery on Fox Hollow Rd? I did all the photography for that cemetery and don't have a picture of her grave. This cemetery is located high on a mountain and takes 4 wheel drive to get to.

Edward Bobbitt
Thanks for the info on Edward! Do you know how he happened to be buried at Miller Creek Cemetery? The cemetery was started by the Felps family, my mom's side, and most of the people buried there are related or grew up in the immediate area. It also isn't close to Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. Curious why Miller Creek was chosen.

Wow, I hope he gets found. I hesitate to claim the memorial for 2 reasons. #1 is the cold and snow. #2 is that I know this area, and it's a lot of babies and a lot of turned over markers. I went through this part of North Division last fall, and, obviously, didn't find him. I just went back and looked at some pictures I took. If this is still open in a few weeks, I'll try again. Would be nice to complete the family.

Alfred Brandenburg
What a cool picture! I am just trying to get some miscellaneous markers from basically the poor person's part of Springdale. I'm glad to be able to tie Alfred to so many people. It must have been devastating to have him die young like that. Since you're a relative, would you like to manage the memorial?
