During the next three decades, he successfully operated as an entrepreneur and cattle rancher in Burden, Kansas. F. G. and Hanna, who later made their home in Wichita, reared nine children in Burden. Eight were entrepreneurs in Wichita. It is in the spirit of freedom, family and the American Dream that we dedicate this memorial to our parents."
