Note from contributor: W.M. Richards is actually William Smith Richards, father of Newton Jackson Richards Seems that Della ordered the headstone from a Sears and Roebuck catalog. William always went by Wm. so that's what Della put on the order form. When the tombstone arrived, it was as it is today. Della couldn't afford to send it back to have it corrected so it stayed as you see it today - wrong.
