Bio and Links
Bio Photo I moved to North-Central Kansas in late 2008, which gave me a whole new starting place for family history research! My grandmother Elsa Opal Long Vandecar (1896-1996) was the family historian, and for the last 15 years or so I've been trying to continue her legacy.

You are welcome to copy any of my gravestone photos onto other genealogy or family history websites; no need to credit me. Helping other family historians by gathering those photos is my way of paying forward all the help I've received!

What is the "burial record" you refer to? His birthdate is 1803
and d 2Aug 1882. Even a photo of the broken stone would be helpful or who he is buried near... all info appreciated greatly.

Thanks for taking a nice photo of my great grandfather's head stone. At the age of 12 I was told he had been buried in Concordia. I drove to Concordia last fall to see if it existed. Now my cousins in Texas can see it too.
