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: Sarah Madden Photo
I posted 2 pictures, one of the front and one of the back. Unfortunately the site put the back picture at the top of the page.

The front has the names and dates:
Francis 1790-1872
Sarah 1800-1881
Bridget 1841-1918
Edward 1789-1886

If it is too much bother, forget it. The idea I had was for you to move your pic of the gravestone to the top of the two pics. I thought that would be better. Thanks for your note.

Julian R Lahman 37740261 and 62
Julian R Layman was born Aug. 26, 1893 and died Nov 12, 1918. He was shot and killed in the Argonne Forest in WWI because the word had not gotten around to the German troops yet that the war was over.
As far as I can see, memorials ending in 61 and 62 are for the same person.

His parents are Emma Nordwall Lahman #37740259
Josiah Layman #37740258

Betty Gompf Nordwall #47526973

RE: Wingates
Thanks so much - now I can go over the list to see if I can make any connections. I copied it and sent myself an email with all of your names.
I have quite a few Railroad men in my family.

RE: Amanda Wingate
Hi Larry - I would love to have your list of Wingates. Who is the other you found at Haseville?
I am still trying to research Amanda, and have not found too many clues to her life.
I read about Marceline, MO and it sounds lovely. Of course I discovered the Disney connection.

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