Hi Barbara and Cheryl:

I saw your listing and thought I would be a "Dick Tracy", but wound up being
"Duck Lacie of the twenty first and one half century".

But I am going to share my thought any how(how rude).  I found 4246 Natural
Bridge Road on the map and looked for the closest cemetery.  After all in 1906
people still did not travel very far.  

First I saw Bellefontaine Cemetery (Big), Calvary (Big) Bethany, St Peters,
Memorial Park and Valhalla.  By this time I figured that I had it nailed down to
at least 75% of the burials for the last century.

Is it possible to nail down what was at the 4246 address in 1906, such as a
church or funeral home?  Do these cemeteries have readily accessible lists of
the burials.  They would have to be big.  Another idea, based on my own
experience is the possibility of "potters field".   Most of the time, this would
be a county cemetery, but many churches and other cemeteries had their on burial
areas for the indigent.  Many of the cemeteries kept seperate (if any)and crude
records for these burials.

My grandmother was buried in a cemetery outside Fairfax.  The only records are
those kept by the local funeral home (that funeral home did not bury my GM) and
the head stone, which was made from a bucket of cement and had her name and
dates scratched on it.  Her death was never recorded with the state of MO. 
Shortly after, the family did a "Grapes of Wrath" thing and moved to CA, where
my GF is buried.
