HEADSTONES AT OLD & NEW PICKER'S CEMETERIES - 1997
The stones were read in 1997 by Carmella Kranz and her friend Penny Lemon. The cemetery is now known as Gateway Gardens. Carmella says it took them 10 days to read the stones in both Old and New Picker's cemeteries. They started this because when they wanted records for Old Pickers, no one knew who had them. If Carmella comes up with an obituary thay says the deceased was buried in Old Pickers or New Pickers, she adds them to the list.
The following is taken from "OLD CEMETERIES St. Louis County, MO. Volume III" by the St. Louis Genealogical Society, 1984.
"The original "Old Picker's" -- named for the minister who founded the cemetery (Holy Ghost E & R) was located in the Kansas-Wyoming-Louisiana-Arsenal area in south St. Louis. A 20-acre plot, it was opened in 1845 and many victims of the great cholera epidemic of 1849 were interred there. The last burial there was in 1901, but it was not until 1916 that the last bodies were moved.
"New Picker" (actually our present Old Picker) was opened in 1862. It was sometimes called The Independent Evangelical Protestant Cemetery but was always more familiarly known by its nickname.
Subsequently another cemetery was opened on Gravois, across the road from "New Picker," which then, inevitably became "Old Picker." This cemetery is still in existence but was not in very good condition in the early part of 1983."

From Greg Myers: "OLD " Picker Cemetery also called Picott Cemetery is long gone (operated from 1845 to 1898), it use to be where now Roosevelt High School is (Gravois & Compton & Wyoming up to about Arsenal & Compton over to Louisiana & Arsenal and down to Louisiana and Wyoming). Some bodies were moved to " NEW " Picker, others to other places, and some left. (I went to Roosevelt High School and once in awhile a human bone would surface in the football field over the years and also in some of the backyards of houses along Arsenal, I guess from the pressure of the activity and games above the remains .... worked them upward over the years). Most headstones were destroyed and used for the foundation, etc. "NEW" Picker ow called GATEWOOD GARDENS is located right next to Saints Peter and Paul Cemetery (Catholic) at Gravois and Hampton. The records are hard to find, and care taker after care taker have been in trouble for not keeping to contracts and up keeping this cemetery. hope this helps .
This cemetery is now known as Gateway Gardens. The stones were read in 1997 by Carmella Kranz and her friend Penny Lemon: see ftp://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/mo/stlouis/cemetery/pickers.txt
