RE: Mattie van Dusen in Sunset
Sure can. It may take a few days. Find A Grave has to approve the request since I didn't create it. Thanks!

RE: Chas. van Dusen in Sunset Cemetery
Dr. Akins:

Find A Grave FAQ's state, "If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. Never deliberately create a duplicate memorial."

I feel I am entitled to keep the memorial I created first. I am not a member of the Van Dusen family, but it's probably their right to decide if "Van" is capitalized or not and if there is a space between it and "Dusen". To say one is more correct than the other is presumptuous.

I will stand on the principle that first in time is first in right and not delete the memorial I created.

Thank you.

Thank You for your time, this is a great help in putting together the family. it would be easier if I was living in Manhattan.
So for a little info on your part the Knostman family ( Emma ) married Alden Huse which gave birth to Mildred who married Clyde Mullen at which gave birth to my Mother.
I hope that helps you do this work and probably understand how this all goes together.

Thanks again

RE: van Dusan in Sunset Cemetery
Be sure to check the VanDusen entries without a space first!

RE: van Dusan in Sunset Cemetery
I have sent you an edit to spell Dusen with an "E".

Again Richard, I want to thank you for your time and effort to post a grave stone request of mine. In my early years, I worked for Schwab & Eaton.

Richard...Thank you for taking and posting the photo of the approximate location for John and Elizabeth Dimmock in Sunset Cemetery. This help fill in one more piece of the extended Dimmick/Dimmock/Dymoke family history. John
