Stories my dad told me when I was but a child

  • Denver, Colorado

Dad was born in Willcockson, Arkansas in a place informally called Marble City. He told me he used to go to Marble Falls and jump off the cliffs into a deep pool which they called their swiming hole.

In 1k949 we drove to the ozarks and spent some time with his kin and he showed us his old homeplace and took us to Mount Sherman to visit Martha Poyner, his father's second wife. There we met their son Silas  Devoe Stacey and had a wonderful time visiting and learning more about famiily.

The stories he told me from time to time are well in my memory and I have collected many of those stories in a list which is open to the public called <a></a>

If you wish to read the stories you can send a blank email with -subscribe before the @yahoogroups, including the above group name, thus:
