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.

They started Old Mission Mausoleum in 1918 and completed it 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 its builder of 36 years. The information along with photos can be viewed at this link.

Eternity and Me!

May 2007: 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 40 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!

Last updated: March 2014, if this date is out of date by six months, just look for me here>> Future resting location.

Jacob Murray
Thank you for answering. He was botn about 1809 in PA and died Sept 10, 1885. You took the picture of his gravestone. evidently, his wife Mary F, children Ollie John and Ella are buried on his lot. Does everyone have a stone that you remember? I am having a difficult time finding his 2nd wife Jane Hilliard, mother of John who is buried there - died 1863 in the civil war. I was going to try to get to the area.
Thanks,
Ruth

RE: Gotcher family grave markers
You're welcome David. Annie, Jasper and son Henry Wilson Phillips are buried close to the Hunziker graves - it appears that they are somehow connected. You can see Annie's grave stone in the background of the Hunziker monument at Find A Grave Memorial# 125596495

Best wishes,
Paul Hoyt

Which cemetery did you find them in? I just discovered that I had them in Cedarvale instead of Roselawn.

Hi
Hey Mr. Stuart, I was one of your students at Truesdell back in the late 80's. I saw you at McDonald's a few years ago and had the chance to apologize for being a rotten student towards you. You and I almost fist fought a couple of times...haha. Glad to see you on here.

You're very welcome. Yesterday was a nice day to walk a cemetery- 72 degrees. Today it snowed and 36 degrees.

RE: Marshall & Brent Murdock
Yes, I remember you! As a note of explanation, my grandpa grew up working in the Gazette in Emporia with William Allen White. For awhile, maybe a year, after WWI, he ended up in El Dorado with Rolla Clymer, I think, then back to the Gazette until he retired. My dad also worked at the Gazette. I am from Emporia, live in Wichita, and have a business in El Dorado, so have had an interest about all of these newspaper guys, including the Murdocks who were in Emporia before spreading out. I love digging this stuff up! Becky

Joe True Hamlett grave sone
There was a photo in Facebook asking for help in finding the original location of 2 stolen grave stones. I believe one belongs to this gentleman.

I could not expand the photo on his site, so I was unable to check the actual stone or lack thereof.

It was found in Mathis, San Patricic County, Texas just outside of Corpus Cristi, Texas.

I am going to contact the San Patricio Sheriffs office, Sgt. Investigator Emma Burleson at 361 364-9600.

If this is his stone, I wanted to thank you for your research and help in bring it back to him.
