Filer Sackett See and Mary Elizabeth Northrop See
This is my humble first attempt at Genealogy, beginning
with the following introduction:
While playing in the yard on a swing as a youngster
in Colby, Kansas, grandma would observe a lone rider on a horse; later the entire Jesse James Gang
would arrive on horseback. They came into the house; Mary See would have a meal prepared. They ate in complete silence. Thereafter
they rose and would ride off on their horses.
Afterward a coin was found under each dish!
Just to add some color; I have added some color!
The next thing I have to present
is going to be about as exciting as reading
I Chronicles 1:1 through
I Chronicles 9:44.
No, not even!
Still, if you are determined to know it all, let's move on to the next page:
--you know what that yellow caption means here:

Now, this is kind of interesting:
Filer and Nelson were four years apart in age, and apparently
they formed a partnership. The document that follows is on their
letterhead; it contains a handwritten note to Filer answering
the type written note from his brother, the Reverend Albert Nelson See.
Now I am not sure just how some
of these people figure in for others seeking out information about
their origins, but it seems this was a family business and if
you use your zoom tools you will see a lot of nepotism going on
here; I believe my grandmother actually owned stock in this company--at
$1.00 per share, it was rather affordable, hm?

died on July 18, 1915.
Thirteen children resulted from this marriage, nine of whom grew to be adults:

William CastorOctober 22, 1905;
Five children born to Bill Castor and Martha See Castor:
Waneeta, Bill, Clarence, Hazel Beatrice, and Zetta M (Baby Peggy).
That is not a typo on Zetta's middle (?) name; all she was given was an initial without a period.
Hazel was three years her senior and called her "Peggy" because she said the M stood for Margaret
(she named her own daughter "Margaret," and she also had a son named Myron).
The name Peggy stuck; I know, cause it was my mother.
She divorced Bill and married
Clyde Conner on September 22, 1929.

Martha was my grandmother.
DeEarl, the baby of the family: Born October 16, 1887, in Thomas, Kansas.

I do not have a record of DeEarl's death.
