St. Peter's Cemetery is a perpetual charter cemetery owned and operated by St. Peter's United Church of Christ of Ferguson, MO.


The present-day St. Peter's Cemetery was established in 1855 when the church purchased 34 acres of land on Lucas and Hunt Road from John F. Darby. The first burial at the new location was made in October of that year. 

The church had actually had an earlier cemetery that went back to 1846, located on Lemp Avenue in St. Louis. This cemetery quickly outgrew its capacity, necessitating a larger cemetery.

By 1867, the cemetery was again in need of additional land. Nine acres were purchased from John Stevens. In 1897, another 48 acres were purchased from the estate of Jesse Lindell. The final purchases were made in 1911, when an additional 18 acres were purchased from Joseph Gummersbach and 10 acres were purchased from Henry Raterman. These land purchases enlarged the cemetery to its current 119-acre size at the Lucas and Hunt site.

In 1988, St. Peter's Cemetery assumed responsibility for the operation and maintenance of the 28-acre Bethany Cemetery. Located on St. Charles Rock Road, just south from the main site, this area is now known as the Bethany Section.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
