Yard Art of Glenn Stark, Kingman – Kansas Tuesdays September 24, 2019

This one took a bit of time to come up with where in Kansas I should look for this week’s Kansas Tuesdays post, but as I thought about where some of my ancestors and their siblings had lived in Kansas, I focused on Kingman County, Kansas. My great-grandfather’s brother, William Kring52 Ancestor Week 22 William Kring – Why Kansas?, moved to Kingman County sometime around the mid to late 1870s.

I chose Yard Art of Glenn Stark in Kingman (Kingman County) as this week’s Kansas Tuesdays post. Here’s his Roadside America link – https://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/14499. In the link, a comment from 2007 showed Glenn was in his 90’s. I checked and found he died in 2014, age 97, and is buried in Butler County, Kansashttps://www.findagrave.com/memorial/53118823/glenn-hardin-stark. He was a Pearl Harbor survivor, on the USS Maryland at the time of the attack, based on the obituary. His widow died in 2017. It appears the artwork is near where the Google Maps location below indicates (south side of the street in the park area). The Street View was last updated in 2014 so it doesn’t have the artwork as it was added in 2016, but an aerial view looks like it is there. He was a Baptist minister as well as a sculptor.
