Hmmmm, interesting. Perhaps Goll sold him the plot, but it was not "officially" recorded?

Here's that article:

Death of an Old Navigator
The St. Louis papers of Wednesday announce the death of Captain Cephas B. Goll, which occurred on the 12th inst. Those of our citizens who resided here fifteen ago, will remember Captain Goll very well – while the old settlers will probably remember him still better. He came into these waters with Capt. Throckmorton, on the steamer Warrior in the time of the Blackhawk war, when boating was dangerous on account of hostile Indians. For many years thereafter he was known as a pilot on the upper Mississippi. From 1855 to 1858 he commanded the steamer Ocean Wave, which was a favorite packet on the upper Mississippi. He was born near Harmony, Pennsylvania. He was buried at St. Louis yesterday – all the steamers in the harbor paying tribute of respect with flags at half mast and tolling bells.
