Richard T. Mulcahy came to Texas in 1883, and was the first man to build a large, substantial home in Rosenberg. In 1889 he helped start a school for the town and served as the first school board president. He later became mayor of Rosenberg and served two terms in the state legislature. He was also a member of several fraternal organizations, including Woodmen Of The World. The "Father Of Rosenberg" died in 1931 and was buried in the cemetery that he helped start. The cemetery was called Woodmen Of The World, but was later changed to Rosenberg Cemetery.
