Bio and Links
Bio Photo Keeping the memory and information about our family members "alive" should be our goal.

Unless "we" make some major contribution in our lifetime, most of the information about us is known within our own family and after several generations the information fades and then it is gone!

Thanks to Find A Grave for allowing us to share this information with each other now, and for future generations to use in their genealogy research.

November 2001: Since this is Find-A-Grave and I am still alive, I wanted to leave a message for current and future readers about "my" grave location. I have just purchased space for my mortal remains in an older community mausoleum.

Old Mission Mausoleum was started in 1918 and completed in 1954 with the addition of the fourth and final unit. The construction resulted in a total expenditure of more than one million dollars. I have researched the history of this structure and it's builder of 36 years. The information along with photos can be viewed at this link.

Eternity and Me!

September 2014: I find it hard to write something about myself, but since I am one of those persons who never made a major contribution to the world, I will leave a short review. I have been married to the same wonderful lady for 47 years. We have two great sons' Todd and Brett, and one fabulous grandson, Tyler. My working life was spent with the Wichita Public School system (1965-1996), first as a secondary science teacher and then as a secondary building administrator. My wife and I now spend our time traveling, taking care of our grandson, and just enjoying our leisure time. Good luck in your research with your family history, and again thank you to Find-A-Grave for allowing contributions to this enterprise.

May 2009: I have just received word from the United States Department of the Interior, that my application to have the Old Mission Mausoleum placed on the National Register of Historic Places has been approved!

RE:Sam Garst

I went to photograph this request for you but there is another persons marker on the niche. The marker on niche 36151 is for a William Wollesen, which I then looked up on Forest Lawns website and they have him listed in niche 36306. No marker on the other niche for Sam Garst either.

I took a photo of the niche anyway and can email it to you if you like so you can see for yourself. So sorry I can't really fulfill this request for you.

Is there any more info about this person? I am looking for an infant daughter of Earle Raymond Mark and Ethelyn DeEtte Cowing, sister of Earle Raymond Mark Jr., all of whom were born in Kansas.

Come across your name in my research and contribution for the people buried in Devine and wanted to say hello.

I was wondering if you would do me a huge favor? I have been searching for my maternal grandmother for 15 years. I finally found her second husband on find a grave after released the 1940 census. Problem is she is not on find a grave with her husband. Could you go to Maple Grove Cemetery and tell me if Janie (Jane) Marie Starling-Leonard is buried there with her husband Joseph Labin Leonard, Jr.? I need her birth and death dates if possible. Pictures would be great! I would be forever grateful to you should you decide to help me as I'm in California. Grandma Janie is my doppleganger!LOL!
Thank you,
Mary Richmond
