Dear Patty, Thanks for the reply & sorry it has taken me so long to answer. You listed the 2nd wife of Orlo Truman Tedrick as Clarissa R. VanDyke b. 1903 m. 1920 Daviess Co.,Mo. d. c 1924.
This interesting because the Rheam Van Dyke I am looking for was the daughter of Lucy Fannin who was married 1st to William Pierce Van Dyke on Nov. 28, 1900 in Daviess Co.,Mo. He died around 1909-1911 and is buried in the Centenery Cemetery near Gallatin in Union Twp, Daviess Co.,Mo. and 2nd toGeorge Tomlinson. Lucy Fannin was the daughter of John Montraville Fannin and Clarissa Foster. That must be who Rheam was named after. Lucy was born Feb. of 1881 in Missouri. She died in 1961 and is buried in the Brown Cemetery in Daviess Co,Mo. under the name Lucy Tomlinson.
I have been told that Rheam Van Dyke married Orlo Tedrick and that they lived in Gallatin, Mo. Orlo and Rheam had one child Bobby who was mentally retarded and died near the age of 30 without children.( The name fits what you sent, but it appears Robert was the son of Orlo Tedrick and his 2nd wife, Santa Fina and that he did have at least two children: Eva and Winifred, according to what you sent to me.) I was told that Orlo Tedrick married a second time to Santa (unknown) Is this the Santa Fina that you mentioned?
I was told Orlo and Santa had two sons: 1. Anthony Tedrick who lives in a suburb of St. Louis and 2. (unknown son) Tedrick who is in a nursing home near St. Louis.
Can you help straighten me out on all of this? Do you have anything at all on the Fannins?
