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: 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. :-)

RE: Your work on Findagrave
I live in Brookfield and my late fiance, Kenny Farris was from Marceline. SMALL WORLD! I suppose I should take the time to go to the Chula cemetery someday, but I never seem to head west.

RE: Your work on Findagrave
I finally remembered to print a list of the photo requests at cemeteries I was planning to visit when putting flowers on my ancestor's graves. I totally agree with you about doing this not for the numbers but to help others. I want to transfer memorials to any family members no matter how many generations back they are (unless of course they are my direct ancestors). I grew up visiting old cemeteries in Macon and Adair counties with both of my grandmothers, which planted a desire to connect with my ancestors through visiting their graves. The only family I have buried in Linn County (where I actually live)are my parents. However, I have been searching for my children's ancestors on their father's side and placing them in a virtual cemetery for my kids info. I cannot find the memorials for two of their great-great-great-granparents who are buried near here. Do you ever get over to Livingston County in the Chula area? I am trying to find the graves/memorials for Henry Richard Fisher and his wife Charlotte (Ropp) Fisher. They are supposedly in the Chula Cemetery (him-family tree records, her-Missouri death certificate #37463). Both died in Meadville but are buried in Chula. Any help would be appreciated!
