Latnames were often mispelled, many of the immigrants were illiterate so it was difficult for them to spell their correct names and lastname.. and very often lastnames and names were "americanized" to better integrate in the new world...

I believe his death certificate is this one:

http://www.sos.mo.gov/TIF2PDFConsumer/D ... 175553.pdf

Tomaso Chiodo, died on July 14, 1912, he was 9 months old, son of Salvatore Chiodo and Rosa Federico... He was buried in the St. Mary Cemetery on 15 july 1912... is this the cemetery you visited?
