Barb's Family Tree


The memories of all our yesterdays
live in the corners of my heart,
A time spent not so long ago,
where you will forever be a part.

I tell everyone I meet how very proud I am of you,
And how Hard it was to let you go
even though I knew you'd want me to.

But now somewhere, someone is smiling
because of the joy that you could bring,
And I know after listening more closely,
it's the song of unselfishness when I hear a bird sing.

And even though you can no longer be with me,
I still feel that you are there.
Perhaps, that's the bond that goes unbroken
when a love is truly shared.

So, I'll only say farewell because in good-byes I don't believe,
For I know that time will come again
when you'll be holding hands with me.

Lorrie Neal - 2003

My sweet George was even giving after death, he gave the gift of Life to others.

martin/jacks family
It looks as if you are part of the Martin family that my Willis family married into (maybe already part of it for all I know) in Clay and or Platte County Missouri. I couldn't trace it back for sure on Find A Grave but it seems obvious.. I think that Martin family is connected to my husband's Martins as well as to my brother-in-law's family. They came by slightly different routes, esp the brother-in-law, and I may never figure it out but would be interested in exchanging info -- even more so if you have information on Catherine Willis who lived with her daughter and son-in-law Elizabeth and Brightberry Martin in Platte Co 1870.

Marie P. Anderson
I am proud of the Stecker name that's my family so
I'm not trying to leave it off my Mothers marker.
It was her wish in her will and her paper work she did at Green Hills when she purchased there
that her name on her grave be Marie P. Anderson.
She is not aka Marie Phyllis " Gigs" Stecker Anderson.

" Gigs" was a nickname her Anderson grandchildren called her when they were growing up.

I am okay with removing the "Gigs" I added that
and adding also known as Marie Phyliss Stecker Anderson.
Again I am not trying to keep her maiden name off
only respect her wishes please.

Thank you
