Mrs. Virginia Bingham Block, 102 years old, for whom Virginia Ave was named, died yesterday at the home of her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Marshall A. Block, 13 Yale Avenue, University City, of paralysis. She had been ill about five months.
     Mrs. Block, who was born in St. Louis, Dec. 6, 1829, was the daughter of John Bingham, wealthy slave owner who lived on a large farm adjoining Grants Farm, country estate of August A. Busch, on Gravois Road. Her husband, Hyman Block, died more than 30 years ago. Mrs. Block was educated at Visitation Academy and was its oldest graduate.

She recalled a visit to a dentists office during the Civil War when the dentist put mattresses over the windows to protect the patient from bullets fired by Union soldiers.
     Following the early part of her married life she lived in a house near the present site of Union Market and later lived on Papin Street.
     Mrs. Block is survived by a son, John B. Block, who lives on a ranch near Albuquerque, N.M., her daughter-in-law, and a grandson, James B. Block.

     Bellefountaine Cemetery (St. Louis, MO) is located in St. Louis, Missouri, 38.69140, -90.23030.
Historic Bellefontaine Cemetery, founded in St. Louis in 1849 as a non-sectarian community cemetery "open to all regardless of religious affiliations," contains nearly 400 acres of lush landscaping and architecturally-acclaimed monuments, mausoleums and memorial features that can be seen in a self-guided scenic tour of the cemetery's historical monuments and lots (inquire at the office). Conveniently located on West Florissant Avenue near the I-70 exit, the cemetery has extensive hard-surfaced roads which offer dramatic views of the grounds and the St. Louis metro area. A number of its memorials are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including the grave site and obelisk of Gen. William Clark of the Lewis & Clark Expedition, the Louis Sullivan-designed landmark mausoleum of brewer Ellis Wainwright and his late wife, and the ornate Gothic mausoleum of brewer Adolphus Busch. Other notables from Bellefontaine's pantheon of historical personages include brewers Adolphus Busch, Eberhard Anheuser, William Lemp and Joseph Griesedieck; inventor William Burroughs and his namesake descendant, poet William S. Burroughs; Mississippi steamboat captain Isaiah Sellers (namesake of the pen name of noted American writer Mark Twain); and 1904 World's Fair president, Missouri governor, St. Louis mayor and diplomat David Rowland Francis. Scores of Civil War generals rest here from Union and Confederate sides, including Stephen Watts Kearney, Sterling Price, and Don Carlos Buell, as well as many Missouri governors and St. Louis mayors and civic leaders.
