Lost Settlements, Crimes And Communities: Kansas City's Pocket Cemeteries Hold Buried History

Hidden in plain sight, Kansas City's historic pocket cemeteries are survivors of urban encroachment and suburban sprawl, revitalized by the pulse of curiosity. Their resilience is thanks to local historians, faithful descendants, amateur sleuths and dedicated genealogists, working to piece together and honor the stories of people who lived and died in the area more than 100, 200, even 2,000 years ago.

KCUR editors must be asleep at the switch - not much in the way of woke thought, indoctrination, or extreme bias in this write-up. KCUR, you are better than that!

Where Tom Pendergast's grave is doesnt matter. Thats not where he is. He is in hell, as he lived a Godless selfish life, focusing only on materialism and cutting corners by cheating people to get it.

Interesting that a tiny grain of cement on the wall of his former brick home on Ward Parkway lasted much longer than Tom. Tom was a just a fast cloud that passed over Ward Parkway and is never returning. His "good works", actually bribes only seal his fate in Hell. He got exactly what he deserved.

Do not be deceived, your sins will be found out. And the wages of sin is death. Tom never understood either of those phrases.
