Scott & Kristy Nilsson's
Nellie Larson Nelson & Dage Nelson begat Hannah-Greta Elisabeth Nelson (Elisabeth) . Mary Bitterman begat John Maxwell Bitterman . John & Elisabeth married, and begat Sidne, Scott & their brother . Back then, they were the Bitterman family. They lived in Pennsylvania , New Jersey, South Carolina, Indiana and Georgia . Scott's brother (who used to be Bitterman, but is now Barricks) married (the girl on his near right)!
Scott 's sister (now Sidne Buelow ) married George and they live north of New Orleans . Scott's Mom 's brother is a very serious Swede: we can't reveal his identity. Interestingly enough, you will note that Elisabeth 's maiden name was Nelson - not Nilsson like her full brother who was born a Nilsson (the name saga continues)... Her brother and his wife soon had two sons - our Cousins - Doctor Kent & Reverend Walter . Kent married poetess Heidi and they live in Athens, Georgia - with their daughters, Annika , Ingrid and Britta... Our other cousins , Walter & Holly , live in Maryland - where Walt is a minister and Holly is a nurse ; they have two daughters, Julia Pearl, Susie - and two sons, Nathan and Adam!
After the tragic passing of Scott 's mom in 2005, his dad , now John Barricks, moved to Costa Rica where his first street address included "past the Mango tree which grows in the road, 150 meters from the lubrication shop" (we're not kidding). Several years later, John met his wonderful now-partner, Cathy Strachan Lindenberg – who we all joyfully welcomed into the Barricks-Bitterman-Nilsson family.
Oh, did we mention that Scott's maternal Grandfather, Dage Konstantin Nelson/Nilsson,
greatly resented the name “Scott” and always called him "Chester" -
while Scott's mother, Elisabeth, wanted to call Scott "Bruno."
Scott is eternally grateful for his given name - and for not having
to go through public grade school as either Chester or Bruno...
There will be no quiz on the names.
