...Stories and tales of the lives and times of ancestors of Cedar and Beaver Townships, Buffalo County, Poole & Majors, Nebraska, beginning with homesteading in the 1870s.


   ...Inspired by a genealogy collection begging to be shared.

Genealogy is something that you never finish.  ..always under construction  ...Not an apology, just a fact,... the nature of the hobby.

May Stover (1965)

   My Grandmother, Mary May Clayton Stover, had a marvelous memory and a willingness to share.  I'm thankful for countless stories, facts, clues, and tips while pursuing genealogy in the 1960's.
   Gram lived as a widow for 32 years in Poole, Nebraska, in the same house where she and Bert raised six children. We (my brothers & I) were fortunate to grow up right next door.


...and to: Dad Stover

  On Nebraska:    
 
- There aren't any *&$# magpies here.
- I love foggy mornings... I can't see the mountains.
- Trees never spoil a view; they
are the view.
- Tired of the weather? Just wait a minute and the wind will blow harder.
- It was easy for Nebraskans to discover a new summer drink.... wind tea.
