My mother and my great grandparents are burried in Gaeland Cemetery, Orion, KS.
When I go out in January, if the roads are fit, I will go there also. I will see if I can find Robert Schnase's gravesite and take a picture for you.
At any rate, I will let you know what I find.
Have you tried the mortuaries in Oakley and Quinter KS? The Gove County Courthouse might also be a source of info. I do not know who is in charge of the cemetery now. I will try to find out. My dad may be able to tell me something also.
My father's maternal grandparents were Henry and Ida Miller. they lives just south of Orion.
