Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born 26 February 1933 in Sycamore, AL. Later moved to Sylacauga, AL, where I lived until 12 May 1953 when I entered service in the US Army. After a 20-year-army career, during which I married my wife Irmgard and fathered five children, I settled with my family in the Austin, TX area.

Cedar Park, Texas has been our home since 1973. During this time I worked as a technical writer for Texas Instruments, Inc., and Dell Computer Corp. After retiring from Dell in 1995, I discovered the fascinating world of Genealogy and have been busy researching and writing a history of the Neighbors family in America.

My research has led me to memorialize friends and family (and others) on All comments and suggestions are welcome. If you can suggest changes or additions to any memorial that I've posted, please don't hesitate to let me know.

RE: Ancestry Family Trees
Thank you. It's a painful conversation, but just make sure your family knows all the ins & outs. It will make later easier for them.

RE: Mrs N. L. Nabors Bice
I have transferred her to your caretaking. I hope she does turn out to be family. Thanks for claiming her.

Ancestry Family Trees
Hi, Dave!! I am alway suspicious of trees that have no or few citations. If the sources cited are just other trees, OUT it goes!! That being said, when I first started I was just doing it for me and didn't worry about sources/citations. Now I try to go back and find where I first found the info... not always successfully! It is just plain frustrating sometimes. Right now I'm working on cousin Cornelius. Siblings each had sons by that name born around the same time and in the same area. Which one is the one buried in the grave? Which one is on the census? AURGH!!!

On the personal side, John and I got to see a lot of this country. We did 51,000 miles in 2.5 years in our RV. We are proof positive of not putting your dreams on hold. We were married just a little over 4 yrs. I am so glad we didn't just talk about what we wanted to do! We had no idea our time together would be so short. The memories help.

I added the bio. Different spellings, but are you related? I will transfer. I usually don't like to use the family trees on as so many of them have no citations or sources.

Yes, that makes perfect sense. The SSDI dates come from the funeral homes.

Thank you for the information regarding the birthdate shown in SSDI records. The date I used is the one on her gravestone. Next time I'm at the cemetery, I will double check the gravestone dates again. Once in awhile, the SSDI records have a typo. I only know that because they have my father's date of death listed incorrectly.

RE: Sidney A. Nabers, Find A Grave Memorial# 29399980
Hi Dave - I have updated Sidney's memorial with his middle name and placed in the notes the conflicting birth date. With only two documents, I'll go with the more recent one, being the death certificate.
No need for the WWI Reg, I can always pull that up on Yep, was not sure about the Bird/Byrd. The census record was messy. Thank you! -- Laurel
