    I believe my grgrandmother was a sister to Sophie Gregori. Magdalen Gregori was my grandfathers mother. She married Fredrick Koehler and together had 3 children. Fred(fritz), John, and Anna Marie. grandpa married Pauline Bauer and they had 7 children. A lot of the family are also buried in Richardson Cemetary. I am trying to verify my information with others to find a link between families.

  5. Those in the photo from the left- Former mayor Powell, not wone of the authors, then Warren Flantz, Walter Taliaferro, Loraine Mall, Frank Pointer, and Jim Waldropo. Note- of the authors, only Flantz and Taliaferro are still living.

  6. ahs says:

    You are right: The Mayor at that time joined the authors who were livign at that time. As of Nov. 14, 2012 only Warren Pflantz and Walter Taliaferro are still living.

    I am working on the remodel of the Applebee’s restaurant in Arnold. I would love to work with someone at the Historical Society to acquire some digital files of historic photos from Arnold and the surrounding area. We strive to put together a comprehensive visual story embodying the character of the community in which the restaurant resides. If anyone there would be willing to spend some time on this effort I would love to share more details.

    Please contact me at the listed email address or call at 913-384-3751.

    Thank you so much!

      Give me a call on my cell phone 636-375-1106 and we can talk about pictures. The Arnold Historical Society charges $25 per picture used. You will see some in Starbucks, Lee’s Chicken, Sunrise Cafe, Ponderosa.
      Have you seen any pictures that impress you that you would like to hang on the walls?

    Do you know if any of the brick houses built by the Tiefenbrunn’s still stand? I know my grandfather “Raymond’s” is now a Vet Hospital.

    I was told there is still one built by my great grandfather on Tenbrook?

    I live in Virginia and periodically visit St. Louis to see my brothers and will make an effort to stop by your museum

  9. Donald L. Gilmore says:


    How much would you charge for me to use the above photos of Mrs. Cody in a book publishing 5,000 copies? 10,000 copies? Can I use the image shown on your screen by downloading? Are you agreeable to that. Donald L. Gilmore, see for other publications, 300 Baldwin, Belton, MO 64012, TEL: 816-331-3952. The book’s tentative title is Buffalo Bill Cody’s Great American Dream. 400 finshed pages in length.

  10. Bernie Wilde, Treasurer says:

    I need to check the Minutes because the Society set a charge about 2 years ago and I can’t remember the charge but it was not very much.
    Question: Why would you want two pictures of this museum, the handicapped ramp and me accepting a check from Ameren? Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to use the picture of Buffalo Bill with wife Louise and children that is shown under History?

    • Bernie Wilde, Treasurer says:

      I found in the Minutes that the Historical Society charges $25 per picture and also requests that you specifically state “Arnold Missouri Historical Society” under the picture.

      I have two pictures: the family one and one of Louisa Frederitzi Cody when she is much older. Both of them are on my computer and I can send them anytime. Just let me know.

    My own family connection to Margaret Louisa Frederici, Arnold, Missouri.

    Your article above sparked my interest. Here’s why:

    Over the past decade I got on for US Census records and also found the Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Cemetery records (cemetery located near the St. Louis Arch) and retrieved most of my family ancestry information pertinent to St. Louis and Jefferson County, Missouri.

    I was born in Mankato, Minnesota, Nov. 14, 1946. As a boy growing up in the 50’s and early 60’s I listened attentively to my great aunt Zita Guth (born 1887, Mankato, Minnesota) proudly tell me her family connection to Bill Cody and Louisa Frederici:

    Zita’s mother’s (Mrs. Henry Guth = Barbara nee: Braxmeier Guth) SISTER was Katharine Guth who had married Michael Frederici, a BROTHER to M. Louisa Frederici, in St. Louis, Missouri. Zita told me the immigrant Frederici family spoke both fluent French and German, if I am correct.

    Yes I discovered that records show they settled at Arnold Missouri, Jefferson County in 1833… the entire pioneer family of Christopher and Elizabeth Frederici from Cappel, Lorraine, France.

    Katharine and Michael Frederici lived in the German neighborhood on S. 8th Street which I discovered was a block north of the Soulard Market Stalls in St. Louis.

    Finding this household was a Eureka moment for me, because I discovered that Katharine Braxmeier Frederici had her mother living there… Anna Maria Braxmeier had immigrated with her children from Gleisweiler (in what is now Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany) settling early on in Quincey, Illinois, but re-locating to St. Louis (before the Civil War, I believe). Her husband Hermann had died in Germany before her emigration. This family (household) is buried in Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Cemetery near the St. Louis Arch.

    BTW–I discovered Gleisweiler is only a very short distance from Lorraine province, France.

    My great aunt Zita Guth who died in Mankato, Minnesota at 97 in 1984 was the youngest sibling who never married. Her oldest sister, Mary Guth was born in St. Louis in 1866, since Henry Guth from Mankato as a harness-maker was stationed in St. Louis during the Civil War. That’s how he met Barbara Braxmeier living there as German immigrants also. After their first child (Mary) was born (1866), they moved (back for him) to Mankato, where Henry’s parents had settled from Herbolzheim, Germany around 1845. Henry Guth had immigrated as a child with his parents, Joseph and Anna, and his siblings. Henry’s parents and most of his offspring are buried in Calvary Cemetery, Mankato, Minnesota.

    My own father’s (Walter Hottinger, the youngest sibling) MOTHER was Julia Guth, the middle daughter of Henry and Barbara Guth.

    • Colleen Morrison says:

      Thank you Stephen for the great information on Louisa. My Mother’s maiden name was Guth (Cornelia.) I remember reading about Bill Cody and Louisa marriage on a newspaper article at home. My family (Weldon) lived on a farm in Blakeley township. I remember visiting Zita and Mary upstairs apartment in Mankato,Mn either on top of the meat market or the jewelry store. I would visit my Grandma Anna Guth, who lived upstairs over the S&S bar where my Uncle Louis worked that was across the Hubbard Milling Company in Mankato,Mn. Thank you again for the story of Louisa.

        I would like to know if I could find out more about your links to Christopher Frederici. He happens to be my 4th Great Grandfather.

    • David Frederici says:

      Christopher and Elizabeth Frederici (Frederitzi, among many other spellings) are my 4th great grandparents, and Louisa would be my great great grand aunt. I am a descendant of her brother Francis John Frederici. This article is incorrect, as Christopher and Elizabeth were her grandparents, and her father John Francis was brought over as a 15 year-old. I have thus far been unable to find any information as to what ever became of Elizabeth (Hennessienne) Frederici, as the last record I found her in was the 1850 census. I have found no death or burial records for her.

      I have spent a lot of effort finding information on the family origins in France. I have many French records for births, marriages, and deaths, and a growing set of information on I am happy to share anything and everything I have found, and if anyone can translate French more fluently than I can (and that wouldn’t be hard), then that would be great too!

      I find the comment that the family spoke fluent French as well as German to be rather interesting, and it would certainly make a lot of sense. I have seen evidence supporting them speaking both, and the family tree in France itself is full of French AND German names.

      • Gina French nee Frederick says:

        My uncle traced his family tree and found out we were related to Buffalo Bill by marriage. My grandfather was Matthew Frederici and began an Ice Cream Business in Chorley Lanc’s. Have you any links with us? or any information you could share with us. Gina French

        • David Frederici says:

          I don’t have an exhaustive genealogy completed, so without knowing more about your exact line, it’s hard to know what the link would be.

        • David Frederici says:

          Do you have any further information on your family line that might make it easier to look into?

          • Joan Minnich says:

            Hello David,
            I too am a descendent but from Anna who I believe was a sister to Louisa who would be my great great aunt. Anna married Valentine Kochner and had two daughters Lillian and Pauline. I know something happened to them because Lillian my grandmother was adopted by the Whites: Em, Jean and Bill. I know my aunt Pauline was able to see and maybe ride in one of his Wild West Shows.

    • Cyndy Payne says:

      Hello. Just a brief note as I came across your posted letter. Now retired I will someday join in the research of my family, which distantly includes you. My name is Cynthia Brann Payne, born Cynthia Ann Brann (7-28-1958). My father William DuWaine Brann and mother Virginia Marie (Bach) Brann. My maternal grandmother is Emily Frederici born St. Luis, Missouri. Louise Frederici was her Aunt.

    • Grace Schneider says:

      Stephen: Your account and family connections to Wm. Cody and his wife’s family is fascinating. I’m googling around at the moment to find out whether a family myth of my own is accurate. My grandfather William Walter Schneider (become a board member at Monsanto under Queeny) told family members that his grandfather or perhaps a great grandfather was a justice of the peace and had officiated Bill Cody’s marriage. This sounds impossible given the Frederici’s connections to a home church. Do you have any advice about checking the marriage certificate of the couple? Lacking that, is there a way to check on whose marriages that Christian Schneider may have officiated? My grandfather grew up somewhere in St. Louis, but several relatives, including some “old maid” aunts who fed his family chicken dinners on weekends lived in an area near Alton, Ill.

      • don says:

        Cody was married on Lombard street just a few blocks south of the Arch … there was a plaque on the building until about 2001

        • RBD says:

          What happened to that Plaque ? I became aware of it @ in the late 90’s – 2000 – and shared the bit of history with several people – now I understand it is gone. Who would know what became of it?

          • Bluescorer says:

            I took a picture of that sign. It was more of a sign than a plaque as I recall. Stamped raised letters in black on a white field. This pic was using film and I must try to locate it. Located on an industrial building on the south east corner of 3rd and Lombard.

    Mr. Wilde, that amount for using the photo of William Cody and his wife would be fine by me. I’ve sent my manuscript into Pelican Publishing Company, and it’s being reviewed at the moment, and they have a couple months to decide on the matter. I will let you know when the situation is clarified. I have published two books for Pelican in the last few years. My email address is If you would send me a short email, we could establish solid contact so at the appropriate time I can make the pay arrangement and provide a credit line written to your satisfaction. Thank you very much for contacting me. I must have neglected to give you my email address and for that I apologize. I need the photo image of Louisa and Cody together because Louisa figures importantly in my book. The mentioned photo is all I need, that one image.

      No part of the airport exists because after WWII gliders no longer needed to be tested there. It is all Starling Estates subdivision. There used to be a Rhomberg farm there and possibly other farms also.

      You asked the right person. Raymond Baker’s father owned all the farmland. Raymond lives on a piece of that farmland. Baker’s Restaurant was across the street from Raymond’s house.

    I was so intrigued by your blog on the NCR cash register and the Phoenix Musical Club. My great grandfather was George Young, Sr and my grandfather was George Young, Jr. My father was also named George Young. My father moved his family to Dayton, Ohio in the 1960’s and my husband actually worked at NCR for 19 years in the 1980’s and 1990’s. I have an obituary for my grandfather that was published on Nov. 24, 1982 in a publication that I believe was put out by the Phoenix Musical Club. Irvin F. Tongay’s name and address is stamped on it. I was at the Phoenix Club as a child while visiting relatives in St. Louis. It was located across from Soulard Market at that time in the old library building. I am very interested in further information regarding the Phoenix Club, as my father talked about it all his life. He recently passed away. Do you know of anyone who is still alive that would have additional information, or a written history of it? I would especially like to know who the early members of the club were, as they may have also been relatives. Thank you for posting this!

    is it possible to know from wich area in Italy comes the original family of Louise Frederici, Cody’s wife? Thanks to whom will answer.

    • David Frederici says:

      They were not from Italy. The family originated in Lorraine, France, very near the modern border with Germany in the modern-day Moselle department. This region of France was at the time mainly German-speaking, and the local Catholic Immaculate Conception parish in Arnold, Missouri lists Christopher and Peter Frederitzi (as it was spelled before Frederici, these being her Grandfather and uncle) are listed as German-speaking founding members on its website. Family names that intermarried into the Frederici/Frederitzi line in France appear to be a mix of both German and French.

      Back in the ’40s, the Dietz family owned Lake Holiday and ran the business located at Seckman and Old Lemay Ferry. My husband, Roy Wilde, went to school at Herky high school with Shirley Dietz, part of that family. Maybe if you went to Northwest Library at Hwy PP and 30, you could find info. They have old maps and newspapers plus lots of other stuff.

      After Dietz sold the property in 56?? to Harry DePron, he was a business man and ran the entire complex in a different manner. Roy was the real estate agent looking for a sale from Dietz to someone else.

    This is a picture of Immaculate Conception Church. The “Priests’ House” is next to it and the original school is the building across the street. Maxville and Arnold became known, after awhile, as Arnold. Beck, located in the Richardson Road area, (starting by St. John’s Lutheran Church), also became a part of Arnold. The town was named after Maxwell Arnold, my Great, Great Uncle.

  51. Bernie Wilde says:

    According to the book “History of Arnold, Maxville was named after Maximillian Stengele who in 1873 operated the first business: a general store. Max was also a Justice of the Peace. Max’s great great granddaughter, Theresa Randazzo, is a member of the Arnold Historical Society. Theresa is 88 and a lively, jovial person. the Arnold family lived further east of Immaculate Conception. Three of the Louis Arnold grandchildren are still alive: Eldred now 97, Dorothy now 94 and Louis 85. They frequently tell the stories of their grandparents, Louis and Herlanda and all of the land they owned near Jeffco and Church Road. The City of Arnold also has one family left in the town of Tenbrook, two families in the town of Wickes. Flamm City only has a boat ramp left. All six towns were incorporated into the city of Arnold.

    Immaculate Conception celebrates its’ 175th anniversary this year. The new VFW across the street is celebrating 75 years on Feb. 28. At last night’s meeting, a “uniform” from the early days of the Ladies Auxiliary was shown. It belonged to Dorothy Mayer, wife of Harold T. Mayer who was a Commander at one time.

    Is there anyway to get the names of all the people listed ?
    This is my husbands family

    • Bernie Wilde says:

      I will try to get all of the names. I know Marvin’s son, Terry, is standing at the right side. I just sent him an e-mail asking for the names.

      How is your husband related to this group? I’m sure Terry will be asking the same question.

  62. Bernie Wilde says:

    I would like your e-mail address. I found the original pictures of Marvin Roesch with all the relatives. And I found the original pictures used in the calendar which I can just send to you.

    Still will try to get the names of all the people in the picture but I have handymen working in the house today so need to stay put.

    That is the funny thing here, the expenses were aewolld because Weatherill signed off on them and when the boss signs off it must mean that they were okay.

  75. Karen DeStefane says:

    My third great grandma, Delphi Tiefenbrun, is buried in Richardson Cemetery, per her death certificate, although there is no headstone. She died on November 18, 1910. Date of burial was Nov. 20, 1910. Her son in Frank Tiefenbrunn, who does have a headstone. I am not sure where her husband Charles Tiefenbrunn is buried.
    Since the records were destroyed, I’m curious if you have her on your list. Death Certificate no. 34608.
    She is the daughter of Elizabeth Richardson and William Ellington. Parents of Elizabeth still have still not been determined.
    Keep up the good restoration work!

    • Robin Hanson says:

      Hi Karen,

      Just found your comment – Yes, we do have Delphi listed as buried in Richardson Cemetery. We do not have Charles listed as being buried in Richardson, but it is a distinct possibility since the wife and son are buried there and based on how old she was at her time of death. I suspect that Charles died before her and since the State didn’t require State Death Certificates until 1910, the only record of his death might be available at the county courthouse.

    • George Ellington says:

      I believe this William Ellington was the brother to my Great(4) Grandfather if this is him he was born in Granville N.C Elizabeth Jane Richardson
      1819– Date of death unknown She was born in Tennessee!

    I had a conversation with a person last name Frediritzi. He told me the were some slaves buried on the backside of the cemetery. I have a picture of the Frediritzi house my grandparents ( Dohack ) bought from them.

  78. rittenhouse says:

    My family comes from Mary Frederick, they are also some of the line that reaches Cody. I’d have to get my research out but I do remember that Mary was Louisa first cousin. That side of the branch moved to Seneca Ohio. The grand mother lived out her life with my line of the Frederick clan. And if you look at imdb Mary had a sister who was an actress also. I know the name was changed often but that is how it happened with immigrants. I know some where in the 60s time magazine had a picture of frediric castle in France in the area mentioned. Its a very interesting history to be part of.

    • Linda Graham says:

      My grandmother was a Frederick and claimed kin to Buffalo Bill but I’ve never been able to make the connection . Her grandfather was
      William D Frederick 1861
      John Henry Frederick 1836
      Hezekiah C Frederick 1810
      Henry Frederick born 1785
      Phillip Frederick born 1746

    I am a retired Arnold Police Officer and came across some uniforms we used from inception of the PD until B.J. Nelson made a change in 1989. Are you interested? I have both a patrolman and sergeant uniform. I also have my motorcycle officer uniform from helmet to boots.

    In 1949 ( my eight year class ) the eighth ” graders” from the schools that made up the new Fox school were transported to the Bowen school where we were to finish out that school year . A room had been prepared for us and we finished there in 1950 , that was when I started my freshman year at Herculaneum .

      I can’t answer you about Indian tribes in the Frederitzi/Cody line. Maybe David Frederici knows. Or you can contact the Cody Museum In Wyoming.

  84. Mandy Moulton says:

    Buffalo Bill is my 9th cousin. He is from mom’s side family.

  85. Chelsea Wilson says:

    So things are not making sense to me. My parents own a house in red lion along rt 74 near bahns mill road. There is a road down the street called church road which I read that Bills wife had been born in a log cabin chruch on a road with the same name. What made me look into this is the fact that my parents had found probably 30 letters in an old cigar box under our floor boards in the attic. They are dated from the same time period and many signed Buffalo Bill. Signature looks exact to the ones from him I found online. How could this be? We are in PA? Some of the letters are pretty dirty for that time period(as in sexual). The house we live in is at least 100 years old. Our well was literally hand build and goes probably 30ft down and we have a root cellar. Also I wanted to know if anybody had any idea how two of their children died so young thinking it might be a clue to something.

  86. Chelsea Wilson says:

    I would love to be more descriptive on the letters but they are not in my possession at the moment. I remember though most of the letters were readable still a few had been chewed up by mice and the letters are somewhat hard to read since they are written I. The dialect that had been used back then. All in cursive writing def written with a quill pen.

    In 1800 there were only 25 Cody families in the USA. My family was 1 of the 25 along with Bill Cody’s family. My Grand father Worth Cody was born in 1852, and Bill 1846..Where did Bill Cody’s family migrate from? My family in late 1700s from Ireland.. My great grandfather Pearce Cody and his father were born in East Tennessee in early 1800’s and late 1700s.I have always been asked if we were related…I do not know.

      Our family use to go here all the time. We moved to Florida in 1987. What happened to Lake Holiday?

      • Jackie Howell says:

        Lake Holiday was sold many years ago. The lake/swimming pool drained, the beautiful old house torn down and the land was leveled. It was then divided into lots and is now a subdivision with nice homes. Seckman Road and Lion’s Den Road were realigned several hundred yards south of where they were (would have been thru the lake in the old days) and Lion’s Den Road goes thru the new subdivision. Sorry to deliver the sad news.

  104. Mary F. Morrison says:

    my grandfather, William F. Cody was related to Bill. Cousins, I believe fathers were brothers.

  105. John F. McDermott V says:

    This is fascinating information. My grandfather, Professor John Francis McDermott III, never discovered the distant family relationship through marriage to Buffalo Bill, despite John’s being a renowned Washington University professor, Missouri historian. and avid genealogist. Louisa’s grandfather, Christopher Frederici, was my 4 great grandfather. My g-g-g grandmother, Margaret Frederici Steber, would have been Louisa’a aunt, and my g-g grandfather, Nicholas J. Steber, would have been Louisa’s cousin. Ironically, I think that my father’s second cousin, Michael McDermott (whom I have never met), might be a current resident of Arnold.

Her parents are Jacob and Delilah Wickerham, and her husband is Jean Baptiste Valdejo. I’m hoping they were moved and buried here too.

    A couple of corrections on the Find a Grave Site- last name should be Valdejo, not Valejo, and as you can see on her tombstone, the death date is 7 May, 1886, not as you list 16 June 1871 .

    I’ve been researching Louise “Lulu” Frederici for my wife. Her Mom’s maiden name is Frederici. Mrs. Cody is my wife’s 2nd Great Aunt. I just finished reading her memoirs of her time with Buffalo Bill. I believe she leaves out some of the bad times since I’ve read Buffalo Bill tried to divorce her a couple of times. One time due to “nagging.” That was never brought up. My wife’s family’s story of her was she was a city woman who grew to dislike Buffalo Bill. Mrs. Cody’s memoir paints a very different story. She loved him. I always thought she just stayed in the city, while Cody went buffalo hunting, scouting and putting on his shows. Not true. She was truly a frontier woman who learned to shoot, ride and kill buffalo. She does write how terrible it was to leave her estimate of 3 million pounds of buffalo meat to rot on the plains. The white man didn’t use all of the buffalo like the native Americans.

    Hello Bernie, Thank You very much for your sincere dedication to a very old perhaps abandoned cemetery. My name is Robert Lee Feikert Jr. On my visit back perhaps 15 to 20 years the grounds looked very good. My Grandfather is John Allen Feikert, Died 1943, buried at the edge of the Cemetery facing Richardson Rd. Back through the 1990’s, early 2000’s having information about my early ancestors, I went to the cemetery and found the grave stone, Charles Feikert Born 1790 Died 1826 at the stone wall, under the large evergreens. The headstone was very old and barely legible. I told my sister that the headstones were there with perhaps others and she said that they had been removed, not long after my visit.
    The headstone has been removed and I searched the lot to see if it had been removed and discarded. If so I would like to see if perhaps I can retrieve it and have another made like the original and placed at the burial site.
    Also you should not have to carry the burden alone. Need Help?
    My Father Robert L. Feikert Sr. Wants to be buried there, if possible? We had a old family farm in Maxville, Mo. A little log winded but if you can please help with my inquest I would sure appreciate it. Also if I could help maintain or help with some of the chores, Please email me. Thanks Again

    While researching my family history here in England, I have just discovered that my 4x great uncle Jakob Hampel (1793-1858) died at Arnold, Jefferson County, Missouri. I also understand from reading a pdf version of “The History of Immaculate Conception Parish” written in 1990 that he built the first parish church, made of logs, in 1842. The pdf version of the book makes reference to a picture of the church in an ancient lithograph. Unfortunately, the pdf version does not include a copy of the lithograph. I have searched online to find a copy of it, but to no avail. I would dearly love to see an image of the church that my 4x great uncle built, so am writing to you to see if the Society knows where I may find a copy online.

    I can remember when my dad told me (the day after It happened), he said
    It was a big orange glow In the sky the night Frederitzi’s hall burned down.
    I think I was around 5 or 6 years old, which would of been 1966/1967.
    I live right by the Rock Community Ambulance house.
    I could not find any information on that, or what year it was when It burned.

    I have to thank everyone that Gives their personal time to help with the maintenance of the Richardson Cemetery. There is a lot of History in the location and the Families that are interned there.

    My husband and I attended two concerts that were held in Arnold in the 1970’s at an ice rink that used to be off the outer road, where fox chase is now. We would love to know what bands played there during that time. I believe we attended the “Slade” concert. We have a great story of what happened to us that night, goes down in our history. We have been married for 38 years. We met on the school bus going to Ridgewood school the first year that Ridgewood opened- 1972? We married in 1982.

Recently my husband and I were at the Buffalo Bill museum in Cody Wyoming, and I was fascinated with Mrs. Cody’s little antique treadle sewing machine. It is a Willcox-Gibbs model, something I’d never seen before. Well! A week later, in a second-hand store in Montana, we found another Willcox-Gibbs treadle machine, just like Louisa’s….and it was for sale, and we bought it! She and I do share a birthday, I am also of French descent, and I am Catholic. So, I am fascinated by this woman’s story as well. Thanks for all you do to preserve her history.

    My great uncle passed away in May of 1930, he drowned in the Meremac at Hollywood Beach. The article from the Post Dispatch references a Club House. Does anyone know the location of this. I have found Hollywood Beach Rd but can’t determine where the club house and swimming access would have been. Thanks

    I remember a shoe store below the post office in the late 1960’s. Does anyone know the name of it?
