Bio and Links
Bio Photo Taphophilia: a passion for and enjoyment of cemeteries.

I am in the process of photo-documenting Sts. Peter & Paul cemetery in St. Louis. If you are aware of errors in any of my entries, please let me know. PLEASE USE THE "EDIT" LINKS AND PROVIDE YOUR MEMBER NUMBER (located next to your name on your member page) if requesting a transfer.

PLEASE NOTE: Because I receive a lot of email, I typically do not reply when sent an edit - just check back in a couple days and you should see it. I usually make edits within a couple days. If it has been over a week, please resend as I may not have received it.

Please don't add death certificates that are readily available on-line to memorials.

In addition to adding my family, I enter other graves. I am always happy to transfer a grave to a family member, or to update the grave as requested.

Families I am researching for my family include Mueth, Heidenfelder, Bockius, Buehler, Danneman, Frank/Franck, Freymyer, Meurer and Zieger--primarily found in the U.S. in St. Louis and Southern Illinois.

My husband's last name is Torrence. For him I am researching Torrence, Findley, Watt, Comstock, Peterson, Norton, Brown, Bieth, Sentman, Ritchie and Sixbury--from all over the Northeast.

Please ask permission before posting my personal family photographs or biographical material I have written from my memorial pages on this site to or any other website or personal webpages.

Thanks for all the work you have done to aid genealogists. I'm interested in the info that is posted for Barbara (Hammon) Krafft. I'm curious how you know her maiden name was Hammon? She is my Great-Great aunt.

RE: Henry Meyer Find A Grave Memorial# 47753397
Thanks for your response, Katie. "My" Henry Meyer was born 5 Dec 1855 in St. Louis and died there on 18 Aug 1901. The date of burial in 1907 makes it improbable that they are one and the same. But a burial on 2/26/1907 would imply that the Henry Meyer in your memorial passed away in February, 1907 rather than 1855 as (I recall) the memorial reflects for the year of death. You might want to be sure that the year of death i shown as 1907 in the memorial. Thanks again. Charlie

Hi - is the year of death in 1901 documented? I have an ancestor who died in 1902 by this name and also born in 1855. I wonder if this is that same person? Any information about documentation would be most helpful. Charlie

Thanks for trying
Thanks for trying to find the grave of Virginia Schuler. It's frustrating not to find a stone. I appreciate your help.

Re: Dreyfus memorials at New Mount Sinai
Thank you so much for photographing the Dreyfus family graves at New Mount Sinai in St. Louis. I've updated Florence Dreyfus Meyer's bio and will update those of other family members soon. Thanks again.
