Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have walked many cemeteries in my area, large and small, and have taken thousands of photos that I am diligently working to get added to the site. It is a work in progress and one day I just might get them all posted! :)

I will be happy to add additional information or make corrections to memorials I maintain. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial to send your info to me and I will update. I transfer all memorials within the four-generation rule. I do not link to "burial unknown" listings.

My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from a now inactive member. I work on these daily to update with info and add photos.

Please do not copy my photos to other websites (including Ancestry) without my permission.

Thanks for your message - I will get in touch with Graceland as soon as I can to correct the possible error. It makes sense, as all the rest of the family are at Graceland. (Fred was my uncle.)

Infant VanDyke 22485205
I see there is an infant Van Dyke in Springfield, Ill. You have William Van Dyke as father, do you have any idea who the mother is for this child? I have reason to believe that I might be related. Just wanting to get more information please!

Thanks for the note. I deleted my memorial for Manly Bradley.
