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: William Harding
Thanks Larry - William was my 2x great-grandfather - I haven't found any info on his middle name as Henry nor the children don't match up either. Just wondered where this person got the info

Hi Larry - I'm the great- granddaughter of William Harding and would like to know if you know how to contact the person that wrote the info on the memorial and made the sibling connections - the name documented is Marty.

RE: Baker Family Links
Hey Larry,
Thanks for the update on the links and all of your hard work. Martha (Baker) Baker in her memorial that you created, is listed as the wife of George Baker. That is correct. Martha (Baker) Baker, b. 1804 and her husband, George Baker, b. ca 1806 are my 4th Great Grandparents.

Will be interested to know what you find. Again, thanks for all of your hard work. Am trying to tie her to as many of her children as possible.

RE: Baker Family Links
Hey Larry,
Just wanted to point out the inscriptions on John B. and Harvey Baker's headstones tell us that Harvey and John B. Baker aren't the sons of Martha (Baker) Baker and George Baker, as they say they are the sons of W & M Baker.

Martha (Baker) Baker was born in 1804, normally women are unable to have children by age 45 and John B. and Harvey are born when this Martha is 50 and 56 years old.

Martha (Baker) Baker's oldest son was William Baker who married to Martha (McCollum), this fits their headstone inscriptions that are W & M Baker for William and Martha Baker, that you have listed on their memorial pages.

The parents of the boys are not buried there in the same cemetery as they moved to Washington State. Thanks for looking into this and fixing the links.

RE: Obituary of William Forest Cook.
We got the cows moved up to the feed lot but they had three calves before we got them moved to the "Calving pasture". The three cows with calves are in a field close to the house and barn so we can bring them in when it comes time to take them to their summer pasture in about a month or so. Hubby is out checking on the ones we did get moved to the calving pasture as there are a few calving each day. It will keep him busy for the next several weeks. He sure gets his exercise as he checks on them and a group of first calf heifers in another pasture three times each day! We will be busy tomorrow working some calves that were born late last summer. Just got them weaned last week.

Don't know of any obits I need right now but anytime you find one that can be added to one of my memorials just let me know. Thanks again and keep up the good work you are doing on Find A Grave.

Obituary of William Forest Cook.
I finally got a new ink cartridge for my printer today and printed off the obituary for William Forest Cook #79923842 so you can delete the photo. Thanks again so very much for sharing it. Have a nice evening.

RE: William Cook obituary.
Yep, were suppose to move cows today. Having newborn calves already since we are behind on getting them moved to the calving pasture. Hope the rain holds off this afternoon until we get that done. We were suppose to do it a week ago but that got put off because of the cold and snow we had. I usually make it to town whenever I need groceries or gas. That's about once a week for me or sometimes longer if I don't drive much. I will let you know when I get William Cook's obituary printed out. Have a nice day, Farm Girl from MO.
