I remember when Brent was born in 1956 and also when Danny was born we all lived there on West A and B Street saw the kids up until Galen and Joann were divorced then did not see them much the kids did come to visit with their grandmother Katherine Martin Lichlyter Bray Patton so did see kids off and on I think Danny went to live with his grandmother up until she died . I do family research and Martin was in my direct line so do have info on this part of the Brent"s family but not the Watson line. was sorry to hear of Brent"s passing but did notice that Danny was still living I do not live in Joplin as my husband died in 2013 and I moved here to around the Austin Texas area to live with my son.
