Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interests - as they pertain to Find-A-Grave - are genealogy, photography, Civil War and Oregon & Santa Fe Trail history. I believe that family members, however distant, make the best managers of memorials, and therefore most of the memorials I manage are available for transfer. I try to visit at least one cemetery on each of my travels, for new memorials and new photographs, to help preserve the history of families and communities.

RE: Chas. van Dusen in Sunset Cemetery
Sorry I rattled your cage on this issue. I was trying to get Find A Grave to match what would be obtained in the cemetery search. I have no idea how the van Dusen's spelled their names (maybe various ways), but I only know what the cemetery has. Any of the additional information that I have on this person, I will gladly transfer to you if you wish. I have not the slightest desire in keeping and maintaining memorials that aren't my family. If you would like all the van Dusen memorials, you may have them -- just let me know. Again, I'm sorry if I offended you, it certainly wasn't my intention or expection.

Chas. van Dusen in Sunset Cemetery
I suggest that you remove #141595709, Charles vanDusen, in favor of #141724345, Charles van Dusen. The latter has the correct spelling "van Duesn" as well as other important data. If there is a problem or if you have questions or comments, please let me know. Thanks, Dick.

More edits... thanks!
That's a fascinating section to photograph. I have been working my way from west to east in the last year or so. I appreciate all the information you've been adding.

RE: Floyd Shaddon 55632114
I would gladly hold the Find A Grave until I find family, but that is up to you. I decided to dedicate some time to do a family tree on the Shaddens to find 'family' and I did find Mr. Shadden still has living children by his first wife and I hope when I'm done to 'connect' all the listing on Find A Grave to each other as well. I have given the contact information I have found to the person trying to take care of final arrangements for Mrs. Shadden here. It is a mess but someone is working at it. I hope they will be able now to contact someone who can help or give more information. I appreciate your response!

I am trying to find out if anyone knows if Mr. Shadden is buried in this cemetery or who made the marker. And were information came to make the Find A Grave page. HIs wife recently died in TExas and no one has claimed her body, etc. His ashes are supposed to have been in her custody here. Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you so very much for transferring Bertha to my account.

RE: van Dusan in Sunset Cemetery
I think I got it all correct now. I notice there are several other van Dusen graves in Sunset that haven't been added to Find A Grave.

Can't thank you enough for taking these photos. They will help prove a DAR application I am working on!
