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

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.

Stains Cemetery
Larry I can not thank you enough for filling my photo requests for this cemetery!!! I notice you have done a lot of photos and added memorials for this cemetery...again thank you thank you thank you. I am descended from Aaron Stains and have been able to gather so much information on this family. There are little ones we were not aware of and 2 of the sisters we could not find any info are there. That explains the Austins and Deardurffs there. I have been working on this all day. Would it be ok to use your photos to add to my tree on If not I understand I will be happy to keep them in my own file. I appreciate all you have done. The photos are great quality and so bright and very legible for being so old. Thanks again.
