We have been having trouble tracing the Marr side of the family, which is my mother's father. He lived periodically in Omaha, NE , he served in the armed forces. From what we know he had a wife and children and would have been in Omaha around 1936-1940. All my mother remembers of him was that he was around periodically until she was around 3 or 4. As an adult her mother told her that he had passed away. Mother did visit a woman that she new only as Grandma Higgens. She was later told that this woman was her fathers mother. Grandma was remarried to a Mr. Higgens, but we are uncertain of her first name. She also died when my mother was very young.
