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

RE: Cyrus Hutchinson
I'm not from Marceline but my father was born there and lived there until the family moved to KC. I have many an ancestor in Linn and Chariton counties. I live in NW Arkansas at present but always like to come to North Central Missouri to graveyard shop. I noticed that both Adam's and Cyrus' death certificate listed Rothville as Sam's place of residence but if he's buried in Rothville its in an unmarked grave, or at least I think so.

I added the information you provided to Cyrus' bio. Thanks for the heads up. Any idea where the parents might be?

RE: Joseph Gooch
Hi Larry,

Do you have any documentation of who Gideon Sr. parents were? I'm trying to tie your Gooch line into mine from Louisa & Albermarle, VA but I have no records of anyone going to NC...

Mark Glassel & Adah Watson Coates
Hi. My ancestor, May Emily Bessire, was married to Jordan Tyler Lyell Coates who is a brother of Mark Glassel Coates (33182069) for which you have created the memorial. I'm curious if you are related to the Coates family. If so, I would love to get any pictures or stories you might have that might include JTL (150313474) and May Coates (150313571). I have linked JTL Coates to parents John B Coates (86155347) & Elizabeth Rouzie Coates (86155350) today and added a picture of his family. I'm happy to compare notes if interested.
