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.

RE: Rebecca Veal
Hello Larry,

Yes, Eliza was married to David Switzer. As for Mary, I found a marriage to a Elam F Boles Pvt #75090395 whom I found yesterday, unfortunately she was not at the cemetery where he is. I don't even have an actual birth/death date for Mary just that she was born cir: 1836, Kentucky. Would like to know where Eliza is buried to add her to my database.

RE: Rebecca Veal
Hello Larry,

Yes, John is a son of Harrison and Rebecca, I have 5 siblings for them:

Mary Veal (Boles)
George Veal (3294733 possible)
Eliza Veal (Switzer)
Christopher D Veal (43630347)
John W Veal (146752528)

I was going to send a parental hookup on John but since you asked and he is under your tutelage I will just let you hook him up to the parents.

RE: John Walquist
Larry, you HAVE been doing some looking, glad you are finding so much for this family! Just a suggestion--I forgot to make note about the 5 year difference in the death years--1913 on DC and 1918 on stone. I started, but must have gotten interrupted and forgot to save the data in the bio on my John's Memorial. But I did send the info in your SAC, so my thought is that you can make some type of note to point out the differences. I have done away with my John, but if you look at the dc you can gather the dates and places of birth and death and that will help you decide what you need to make note of. Thank you for helping me confirm my thought of the two being one man, I appreciate that you've been able to find information on this family, it helped iron out one wrinkle!! And I wish you the best in further searching.

RE: Walquist Family
Sorry, Larry, for my tardy reply--real life has held me captive!! LOL I got what I have about John from his death certificate. It was not very filled with family, just medical, but it did list South Swede Cemetery as burial location. I have posted the dc number now. If that has been there you might have thought that was where I got the info. I find--now--that a point about that at least leaves one clue as to where one could look. Hope this helps!! Pam

There are two find-a-grave memorials for Mary Baskett Phillips.

Find-A-Grave Memorial #93821057 was created on July 18, 2012. Find-A-Grave Memorial #107458793 was created on March 28, 2013.

I would appreciate it if perhaps you could confer with the other person and decide which memorial to keep. Please be sure the burial information is included on the remaining memorial.

Mary Baskett Phillips is my 3rd great-grandmother.

Please let me know what action has been taken.

Thank you very much!
