Hi there,
I have been a findagrave volunteer for quite some time though haven't been out there photographing for a couple years. As far as the Pauper Cemetery is concerned, all of the visible headstones that are there have already been photographed and posted on the site. The man that made the memorial (Bill H.) works nearby the cemetery at Piper Funeral Home and he has taken on the task of trying to locate all the people buried there in the Pauper Cemetery. The cemetery was closed to any more burials in the 1920s. With the flu epidemic after WWI, there were mass burials happening there and burials were happening with no rhyme or reason as to location.

Catherine Meyer and Leonida
I found an obit for Catherine and it says that Leonida died Jan 11, 1912. To get to the web site go to:
nobleco.lib.in.us
click on Genealogy
click on C.J. Whan
click on Whan Collection
then go into the obituaries for Meyer, Catherine

Happy hunting!!

RE: William Henry Meyer Memorial# 161670623
I tried to copy his death certificate off of Ancestry but I could only get the middle part. Apparently he was living in Kendallville at Holcomb Boarding House on N. State Street at the time of his death. It also said he was widowed and his wife name was Katharine. He was a well digger and suffered a fractured hip on Mar 3, 1938 which developed into hypostatic pneumonia on Apr 19, 1938. Hope his helps a little.

I don't have his death certificate. I did see it on Ancestry. You can get it off of there.

William Henry Meyer
The cemetery has no record of Mr. Meyer being buried in St. Marys. At one time, a person would buy a lot(s) but there was no record of who was buried on that lot. His father has plenty of room around him so it is possible that he is buried on the same lot. I did find his death certificate and it says he is buried in Avilla. I have added a photo showing an open shot of his father's tombstone.

RE: Clara Masters
Frank and his wife Mildred are buried at Jacksonville Memory Gardens. Do need further information on these two? They can be found on Find a Grave. Memorial numbers are Frank-67200181 and his wife Mildred -67200295. Also, their daughter Barbara -67199807 and her husband Albert -129242131. All are buried in the same cemetery. Hope this helps.

RE: Art and Minnie Gude
My mother, who is Art's niece through his wife's side of the family, often spoke fondly of Art and the Turner Hall. When she was a girl, she and her sisters worked in the coat-check room. I didn't know (or forgot) about the plaque, but now I will have to see if I can get there on one of my trips to St Louis.

If you are not familiar already, you may be interested to look up Turn Verein, which was and is a kind of German cultural and athletic society in the U.S.
