George Curtis Michie b. 1909 Ravena, NE

I'm descended from the Ravenna, NE Michies. My father was George Curtis Michie. His father was George Curtis Michie and mother was Anna Motsick (Masek) I'v seen different spellings. Pop was the fourth of five children.(Anne, Katherine (Kitty), John, George (family always called him Curt), and James. Anna died in childbirth in 1910 when James was born. My dad was about 3 when George married Marjorie. They had four children two died young and Martha and Jane were born in Marigold MS. as was James. My grandfather managed a cotton plantation. His youngest brother Ese moved there with them. My father moved in the '30's to CA where Anne and Kitty were living. He met my mother's family around 1941. He went back to MS. for awhile and opened a florist shop that Jane and her husband took over when he was drafted into WWII and subsiquently became a POW. On his return, he eventually settled in LA, CA and in 1947 married my mom Betty Barnes. B. Suzanne b. 1948 and I was born in 1949 Margaret Ann Michie but I was always called Peggy. Dad died 8-8-85 and mom passed away 4-12-2000. My daughter Mary Suzanne Stimler heard from someone concerning our side of the family. I was so involved in mom's illness and my husbands job change to FL. I did not follow up with the information. They were confused about my dad George Curtis. I would love to get in touch with whoever it is that's trying to fill in the missing pieces. My sister has the Michie family tree that cousin Tom Curran gave my father. It goes back to Scotland several generations before my great-great grandfather immigrated in the 1850's.
