Thank you for your reply...we were able to determine Rachel remarried to S.F. Horst and was buried along side her brother Joshua in Topeka cemetery.
Jonathan was buried in Topeka Cemetery in the Kendall plot , his sister was Mary Kendall, and he lived with her a short time in CA and died in a Glendale CA hospital.

Unfortunately the court house records in Topeka that would have given us the divorce records are unatainable. According to a researcher they were either placed in another area where they have not been located , or were detroyed in a flood or fire.

We are satisfied with the information we have..Jonathan's will indicated he was in poor straits at the time of his death and his sisters received the funds from the estate.

Thank you for your reply, I will forward it to the person who was researching the Richmond family.
