My mother, 1st cousin to Carl Polsgrove, whom you mention, always thought Alice's middle name was Sue, but she did know Alice married a Martin and moved to Oklahoma.
My mother never told me anything about Alice and Thomas keeping in touch.
One of your Martin cousins did tell me a story about Thomas and the 1st W. W. I'll send you her email address.
There is now a place called Birch Tree in Shannon Co, MO, but no incorporated place called Birch Prairie-no big deal.
There is a webpage with a large lineage of your Martin ancestors.
There is no question that they were brother and sister, childrenof George and Nancy M. (Sammons) Polsgrove.
Was your father's gfather George?I've never heard of this story re: George. Perhaps the gfather was a Martin.
Carl surfs the web once in a while.Maybe he will see this and get in touch with you if he knows the story.
Nice to meet you.
