Final Resting Place: The Lives and Deaths of Famous St. Louisansby Kevin Amsler
How did some of St. Louis' most prominent people die, and where are they buried? From Dred Scott and William Sherman to Betty Grable and T.S. Eliot, author Kevin Amsler provides short biographies of famous St. Louisans and their final resting places. This new edition includes descriptions of area cemeteries and a chart showing "six degrees of historical separation" linking William Clark and Auguste Chouteau to many other well-known locals. Also, read about duels on "Bloody Island," the plane crash that killed a St. Louis mayor and the elaborate funerals of the Busch brewery family.
