I spent some time looking for the Wainwright name, and found it very interesting! St. Louis has a fascinating place in history - and this family added to a lot of it! The Wainwright building in St. Louis is well known. The architect Sullivan was responsible for both the building and the masoleum where the Wainwrights are interred. To think that the Wainwright brewery was only outsold in beer by the Lemp and Bush brewery - what a bussinessman he was! (side note here - the Lemp mansion and brewery still remain in use). The Bellefontaine cemetery where the Wainwright masoleum stands is quite the cemetery of honorable mention - surrounded by names like Clark and many, many more.
I am going to pass the information around the family and see if I cannot find your F Grotts and get some more information. Thank you for your post!
