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!

RE: Lena McCall Vignery & Beatrice Tholstrup
I usually ask someone to delete their's & I will transfer mine to them in order to preserve my photo. If I travel many miles & comb cemeteries to take pics I like to have credit for it. I is hurtful when someone takes your pic & presents it as their own.

If mine is earlier, how is it the duplicate? Usually one is asked to update or change the info not delete it. ???

RE: Sarah & Roy Hinkle
Oh! I'm so jealous! I love that cemetery. All my Fudge family are buried there. There is so many interesting burials to look at. Big though. Ha! I have been driving to Independence, Kansas lately to photograph Mount Hope. 80 acres of graves. Yikes.

Have a great day.

Hello Sarah,
Thanks for the heads up. I am going to go ahead and just delete mine. The surname spelling was what was provided on the cemetery transcription I copied from the Wichita library. I had planned on maybe making a return trip to Pleasant Hill but just have not made it yet. I wish I lived closer. Ha!

Take Care

Fred Dutton Photo
Thank you very much for providing the photo that I had requested. Fred and I were friends in high school so many years ago, but it is unlikely that I would ever have an opportunity to visit his grave in Concordia.
