  E. PoCock /  "indentured"  Yes, Zora  "indentured" my Mom to feed her. (In 1928, in Columbus, Ohio USA. She had to.)  I want nothing from YOU - not even your Name, Address or Email.   Contact  ME - if you want to.   FOLKS -- Everything on this, MY  "personal" web site is " Copyrighted! as of year 2014+ - All rights reserved - by (me) Susan Marie [Cassady]-Neuhart AND, various others..."   Contact  ME  

  Please! I hope that everyone will be "OK". HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS!  I am still "researching" about being "indentured" [ PDF ]  (WHICH, our mother was!) 
         A Professor - at the U. Mass. Boston wrote a book about this very subject.

    So, my biological brother ( Buzz "Milo Jr." Cassady ) talks to me - yesterday [ Thanksgiving 2017 ] - and, he says "Sue, my girls [ W. S. N. ] are asking me if they are black? - Or, if I am - we are - African American?"  "Sue, they have visited your web site."

I told Buzz, that I am trying to "find out"; and, a bunch of people are [now] helping me. [ see below ] I also told him that I would "place his remarks (their questions)  onto my web site".  Buzz, who was born in 1955, also stated that our Mom - told him - as he remembers it - that Zora was "native American".   Now, [readers should be aware] Buzz (and me) were born - only ten months apart; And, I was supposed [to be] a  "boy".  That is what my Mom told my Dad ( in the day) - probably, related to what my father's nephew [ "Hop" ] had already done - circa 1955. You see, "Hop" was already "famous" in 1949-1953- as, an unusually good athlete. His trophy's filled cases - at Starling Jr. and Central "public" High schools. That is,  my father [Milo] already had four girls: Carolyn, Barbara, Millie, Carol. But, I came out a "girl"; and, Buzz [ Milo Jr.] - came along - in 1955. BTW - he got that 'nick-name' "Buzz" - related to his haircut  (which I envied him getting) - AND, the already famous astroNaut ( born 1930 ).  And, it fit too!  As "Buzz" - and me - discussed yesterday - (that) HE ( my younger brother ) was the "wind beneath my wings". Yes, he was so brave! - and, so strong!. He grew -over-night -so tall - and so straight.
 He was blonde. He still has grey/green eyes (I think). And, he was a good person! HE made it possible (for me) to have the courage - to do all sorts of things - that little girls ( growing up in Columbus, Ohio ) - did not ordinarily - get to do. WE rode our Schwinn  bikes "every where! WE saw everything - that Columbus, Ohio "little-kids" wanted to see [1954 - 1967].  And, I grew stronger - and, "unafraid" - and, even went to UWGB because - of my brother. - I love YOU "Buzz"!

   Susan's grandmother was:
      (the) Zora Elizabeth [Miller-Sprouse Roby (sp? ROBEY)].
    [ < Sprouse Children - Link ]  [ Zora Link ]
Zora had "dark skin" -and, lived in "Central Ohio" [ 1883-1953 ]. 
           With the good HELP of the FCCS, I may find out "why" an Ohio Judge "took" Zora's 13 (thirteen) children
                 [ my mother "Mary" was one of them] -              circa 1925
                   - and, put them into the " Franklin County Children's Home". See my photo evidence ( LINK )
                                     - proving that the State (of Ohio - The Franklin County, Ohio - Court System) did do this.

I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know, that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives! You don't want the truth, because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall. You need me on that wall. We use words like "honor", "code", "loyalty". We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it! I would rather you just said "thank you", and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post.

  Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to!
