My son Dave located a listing of the early gravesites in the St. Paul's Cemetery that were missing from the previous posting on this website. He found them in the New York City library. The transcriptions were made in 1945, provided by John Ziegelbein, and published in the Warrensburg Prarie Gleaner during the late 1970s.

Entries have varying level of detail. Some list only the name. Others show the birth date or age as well as the date of death. Still others include various bits of family information; whatever was engraved on the tombstone. The listing includes gravesites as early as 1842 (Johann Heinrich Bruns) as well as victims of the Oct. 10, 1864 bushwacker massacre.

You can find the 'Early gravesites' link to the file near the bottom of the Church Records page.

Note. The page images of this file were quite large, so an OCR conversion program was used to create a much more compact text file (20 kbytes). This file should download quickly. The document was left in its original format, i.e. not organized in a spreadsheet, because of the varying degree of detail for the various entries. However, one can either use the search function in the browser to locate particular names or download it into a text processing program and search the contents there. Be forewarned, however, that there are a number of variations and possible misspellings of some of the names.
