Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born at McConnell AFB in Wichita KS, lived there 11 years, then moved just south to the town of Mulvane after Dad retired from the Air Force. After High School graduation in 1979 I went to the United States Military Academy (aka West Point), graduated in 1983 and then spent the next 22 years in the US Army. My final assignment took me to the DC area, where I reside now working for the Army Corps of Engineers.

When I find out information on a burial I try to make a memorial. Hopefully, this will help someone else in their search, if you prefer to manage your loved one (or just want it deleted) just let me know and I will transfer to you.

Thanks to all who have helped me with pictures and documenting my relatives!

Hi Lon,
I was finally able to make contact with the cemetery super today and check the records. Both Ida and Milo show to be in Blk 4 Lot 233 as well as John Ames, but they are unmarked. The only others listed in the plot are Ruth and Alonzo Pribble and Fred, who are the only ones with stones. There are no record for Rhea or Rachel in the cemetery records. I took a picture of the plot. Do you want me to post it on the memorials for Milo, Ida and John?

Also Ruth Pribble Stokesberry, wife of James Wallace Pribble shows to be buried as Ruth Dalu Pribble next to James Wallace. I took a picture of the space next to him. Do you want me to post that one on her memorial?

Anna Schwab at Mount Olivet, Newark, NJ
I found a grave for an Anna Schwab, 1858 - 1928 at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Newark, NJ. Is she a relation to you? I have no information other than name and dates.

The phone number listed in the phone book is 580-832-5180. The office is not open. Sometimes you can catch someone out at the cemetery mowing. The lady that was there last year was retired and phased out last July. The employee that was in charge of the work is in the process of retirement. I have been out there four times since February and have never been able to catch anyone. The city owns the cemetery. I went to city hall but they couldn't or wouldn't help. Said they only had the plot owners and not the names of the people buried in the cemetery. It is a big mess. I have walked and walked this year trying to find the requests. I finally whittled down 75 to about 15, and now they are back up in the 20s again. Ocassionally I see that someone else has filled one or two. Very frustrating. I looked for Milo but so far he isn't turning up. I will keep looking.

Good Luck,

RE: Millers!
You're welcome. If you're still going out there, the monument is on the lefthand side of section L almost directly across from U where the road curves. It is just in from the street but it faces into Section L so you won't be able to see the names from the road.

I also came across a Hutchinson monument and plot on the same side of Section L across from the spot where Sections M, U and L come together. The name Hutchinson also faces in toward Section L and the name Elms is on the reverse side of the monument facing the street. I'll send a photo to you.

Hi Lon,
The picture is a nice addition. Glad you posted it. I am sure family members will be happy to see it. I edited the memorial page for both Charles and Catherine.

I went back out to the cemetery today and thankfully they had done some of the mowing. The older area was knee high in weeds yesterday and I couldn't find anything. Today I found Alonzo and Ruth Gunsenhouser Pribble and Fred C Gunsenhouser. The area around their graves was largely vacant, so the others may not have stones. I still could not catch anyone at the office. I live in hope. That will tell me exactly where to look and if a stone is there or not. I am going out of town in the morning for 2 or 3 days, but will try to find out something when I get back.

You are quite welcome. I found James Wallace buried there with his parents, but those three were all that were in that spot. They wasn't anyone working at the cemetery, so I had no way of checking plot information. It is difficult to catch anyone there since they closed the office. I have to go back to get the ones I need help on and will look and see where your others are located.
