I'll have to look into this names, but that actually does somewhat match up, given the fact that all of the names are spelled wrong:

Mamie Baras == Mary May Barris (she was often called by different names)
Lester Baras == Lester Barris
Charles Baras == Charles Barris

Kollie I don't know but could be Carrie June (from a previous marriage). George is new to me, so I'll have to look into those. Porter June was a child from a previous marriage of Nettie. Maybe Mathew is Mazeppa, since his middle initial was T (for Tyler). My guess is whoever made the record didn't ask for spellings of names.

When I spoke to my grandmother last (and I intend to call her again today with updates and to hopefully get some more info) she said that when money was tight sometimes Nettie would put her kids in a "place she could get them back". This might explain why kids seem to disappear and reappear.
