States: Missouri: Linn
I have studied many transcriptions from Old New Garden Cemetery in Brookfield, Linn Co., MO, where my Sumner, Moore, Bailey, Morris, and other realted families lived, and have a Bertha Groetecke 1882 - 1956, as per her headstone. My understanding is that she was the daughter of Henry Groetecke and Sarah Lord, also buried in ONG Cemetery, but I have little information. I show the other siblings of Bertha's as Abe and Louis, but I think there were 10 kids. Abe married Minerva Alice McClintock, a daughter of John Sumner Mcclintock and Rachael Robbing Moore; he was a son of Findley McClintock and Nancy Sumner McClintock (they are my ancestors via John's sister Mary Ann McClintock Tremain). I'm trying to figure out how Anderrena "Trena" Groetecke fits in; she was married to John P. Clark, and they are buried in ONG Cemetery, too. I think those Clarks are related to my Sumners by marriage, but not sure.
