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 have been researching Linn County, Missouri history and the families who settled there in the 1800's.
My family connections are: Van Dyke, Duncan, Palmer, Gooch, Salisbury

Made some improvements

WWI draft, marriage and early Iowa census all agree with your suggestion about name.

thanks again!

Hi - just wanted to say thank you for your reply. It's always wonderful when someone takes the time to post photos for those of us who live far away.
Best, Cindy

Greetings! I am a descendant of George L. Williams - I see that you recently posted a photo of his headstone located in Meadville Cemetery. Firstly, thank you for posting, secondly, I was curious about there seeming to be two headstones for him. The one you posted listing his wife Mary Jane with him and then the older one which shows his military service in the Civil War - I can confirm that he was in Company H in the First PA Light Artillery. Are the headstones near one another? Thanks again, Cynthia Garrett (his great great great granddaughter)

Larry - THANK YOU for adding memorial for Howard and linking all. Good to have parents Henry C & Everetta also linked. These will now be added to my records (with the death cert you forwarded to me).

thanks, Larry, for the Woollen photo. Was it spelled that way or Woolen? It's both ways on Find A Grave.

Re burial location. I got this from a cemetery book, generally based on someone reading headstones. But these can sometimes be in error. I don't happen to live in that area. I'll check the other memorial and see if I has a photo.
