Bio and Links
I am a descendant of Freeman Van Dyke from Dandridge, TN and his son Richard Wilson Van Dyke, Sr. from Jackson County, Missouri on my father's side. Some of Richard's children lived in the Meadville, and Buckner,MO areas and Richard Jr. went to Iowa. On my mother's side I am descended from Nathaniel Duncan who migrated from Kentucky to Boone County Missouri in 1827. I am descended from his son Thomas Garland Duncan who moved to the Meadville, MO area around 1850. I grew up in Marceline, MO.

I see that there are some of the Gooch family at Haseville Cemetery and that you have been there. :)

This is my great-great grandfather, whose grave-site is in Linn County. I am still looking for his wife Amanda, who would be my great-great grandmother.
Thank you for all of your hard work on the Gooch cemetery. I have read that Rick Thurlo, mentioned in the article, has done the same at one of the Missouri cemeteries.

RE: Gooch Cemetery
Larry, The photos I have are several years old. I haven't been up there for at least 5 years. From reports I hear, it is still a mess. We all have good intentions, but it is just so difficult to find the time...

Gooch problem
So are you saying that Susan M Calhoun Gooch IS buried in the cemetery? Was she married to a J H Gooch? Did they have an infant daughter too?

If so... then maybe you are right.

I do not find Susan Calhoun in my database.

RE: Alexander and Salsbury
My Alexander connection was in Virginia and Kentucky. My 6th & 7th great-grandfather's name was Veazy Alexander. I do not think there is any connection to the Alexanders in Linn County, but I'm not sure. I also don't think the Salisbury family from Meadville has a connection to my Salsbury family. My 4th great-grandfather Christopher Salsberry was born in Pennsylvania. I read somewhere they were German and the original spelling was Salzborger. Most Salisbury families were English.

RE: Your work on Findagrave
Yes, you are correct about James and Ruth.
Now, talk about a SMALL WORLD! I forgot that Elsie was a Van Dyke. I used to live in the big house across the alley from her. :-)
