The father died when David was just a boy, and the story goes that he later indentured himself to a Norwegian or Swedish family involved in brickmaking. His mother's name may have been Wolf(e).

The Kansas Firefighters Museum is building a Fallen Firefighters Memorial with a Memorial Wall of Kansas firefighters who died in the line of duty. We are engraving the wall with the names, fire departments and date of death on the wall. We have 89 names but do not have dates of death for two firefighters from the Kansas City Fire Department: Richard Fee and Robert Hamilton.

We assume they died in a fire and the date was probably some time ago.

Any help you can offer will be appreciated because we will be installing the granite wall soon and would like to include this information.

Thank you.
