I live close to the cemetery and drive through several times a year. I also enjoy ancestry. There are lots of very famous St. Louisans buried here. The bluff overlooking the river flats have beautiful family tombs. Don't miss William Clarks family in the Northeast corner (look for large obelisque).
This can be a rough neighborhood. I suggest entering from I-70 at West Florissant or Kingshighway.
