One of Josie's daughters, Becky, had worked for me at my beauty shop in Joplin... named Designs of Distinction. One year, Becky & I went together on Memorial Day (I believe my mother was recouperating from hip surgery). Becky had said her grandmother was buried in Saginaw Cemetery. We drove from Stella, to Seneca, to Tiff City and back toward Joplin to Saginaw and to Forest Park Cemetery. Becky's grandmother was buried a few graves from my grandmother's family members. Then to find out that when looking at our family trees, they mingled together through the Busicks and Hamptons. ~~ Sarah Capps
