Tulsa,
Tulsa Co., OK
July 7, 2002
Lansing,
Tompkins NY
Inscription: "Married Steven Dec. 23, 2000" - Research Note: Daughter of Kenneth Beeson and Pearl Irene Wode. Mrs. Barbash died at her home in of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis often called 'Lou Gehrig's disease. Mrs. Barbash attended the Manhattan School of Music and eventually gained a post in the PSO as a harpist. She performed in that prestigious position from 1966 - 1971. But she felt the tug of another calling. "Harpists - you know how much they play," said Barbara Thompson, executive director of the Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestras. "She was an energetic person and needed to do more." Spurred in part by Dr. Anthony Susen, the Pittsburgh neurosurgeon who was then her husband, and by the urging of Marie Maazel, who ran the Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra, she threw herself into the field of music education. In 1974, she founded the Three Rivers Training Orchestra w/Bernard Goldberg as music director. In 1985, the organization was to merge w/another youth orchestra to become the Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestras. Mrs. Barbash took to her new role as education advocate quickly. "The youth orchestra is where she got her feet wet in education, fund-raising and interacting in schools" Thompson said. After 15 years, the Philadelphia Orchestra hired her to be its director of education. She ran that program so successfully from 1988 to 1994 that Carnegie Hall in NY hired her to revamp its program, which she did from 1994-2001. "She went very rapidly up the ladder," said Steven Barbash, her husband. "We used to say its a long to Carnegie Hall." "She basically took an education program that was in its infancy and built it into something that is very well respected, not only in New York City but in the whole country," said Lisa Halasz, the present Carnegie Hall director of education. "She is probably the most famous educator to come out of a cultural institution like an orchestra." Much of Mrs. Barbash's popularity was due to her endearing personality. "She was very public and social," said her husband. "She was utterly unpretentious, but she was a natural aristocrat. She could get people to do things by acts of will." Monett Times

Mineral Springs,
Barry Co., MO
SSW: Lizzie - Research Note: Son of John Carlisle Burbridge and Mary Roberts. George married Sarah Elizabeth Hannum on Jan. 7, 1854 in El Dara, Pike Co., IL. Children: George Truman, Lillian Grace, Ollie, Carlyle Wesley, Alice May, and Bessie Alvina. - "Some memories of the George R. Burbridge and Elizabeth "Lizzie" Hannum family", by Clara Elizabeth (Smith) Brandon, the oldest daughter and second child of Luther W. Smith and Bessie Alvina (Burbridge) Smith. My mother was the sixth child of George R. and "Lizzy" (Hannum) Burbridge. - My earliest memory of them is when they left MO along with Aunt Ollie and Uncle Wesley to homestead land somewhere in CO. It was during WW I. According to Thelma Burbridge Williams, Uncle Wes's daughter, the year was 1915. My Uncle Wesley drove the horses, pulling a wagon loaded with supplies. Grandpa was driving the livestock, perhaps 10 or 12 head of cattle. He had a cane or large stick to help him walk as well as to keep the cattle moving on. Grandma and Aunt Ollie were wearing their Sunday best when they left the homestead, riding in a buggy, pulled by a buckskin mare, named Rilly. They would go as far as Cassville or Butterfield to load horses, cattle, wagon and buggy on a train to head west. Uncle Wesley stayed with the livestock to feed and water them. Grandpa, Grandma and Aunt Ollie rode in the coach. Things did not go well in CO. The climate was harsh. Grandma said the wind blew the feathers off her chickens. My Uncle Truman and family had leased their farm during their absence. They came back sooner than expected, so they lived a short time in a large log storage barn. It was built between the home of my Great Grandmother Hannum's and their original home on the homestead property in Barry Co., MO (Mar. 1896). Grandma and Grandpa were well known for their honesty, hard work, and frugal living. Grandpa had taught a year of school before they were married. When times were hard Grandpa would leave molasses on his plate for his children. Grandpa was a truck gardener when they lived in KS. He grew lots of popcorn also, for his grandchildren. In the fall the Burgridge's would purchase 15 bushels of apples from Pauline Cox's Dad near Cassville. Grandpa would get a bucket of them from the cellar when we visited them on Sunday. Their long kitchen table was heavy with good food. Grandpa always said the blessing, then we would turn our plates right side up. They put the silverware on first, then turn the plate upside down over it. It was always fascinating for me to watch Grandpa eat fresh garden peas off the blade of a very sharp knife. Grandma kept large flocks of white and yellow leghorn hens. The egg money paid for the groceries and other necessities. They sold 30 or more dozen a week. Isaac Epperly, a Shell Knob merchant, came by on Thursdays and took them to Cassville for sale. He drove a truck and had a hard time getting up the hill road, before the Horse Shoe Bend around the mountain was made. The present highway takes in their garden spot and where the homestead house was built. When Grandpa was 2 years old, his family went by wagon train form IL to CA, which took six months. No luck in finding gold, they made the long trek back to IL. He had one brother Ira and an adopted sister Bertha. Following the death of Great Uncle Stanton Hannum, around 1920, our great grandmother Hannum lived with the Burbridge's. She lived to be a little over 98 years old, had some of her original teeth and usually dried the dishes. She gave ma a glass wagon salt cellar she'd had since 1881. - Aug. 17, 1916, Thursday, Cassville Republican - Shell Knob: G. R. Burbridge and family who moved to Western Colorado have returned to their old home here. They say while it is dry here, it is nothing to compare with Colorado. Here they have been and they will now be content to stay in this country. Headstone

He served three years and one month in the army. At the close of the war he located on a farm in Kansas and lived here until 1888 when he came to Barry County and lived on a farm four miles east of Mineral Springs until his death. He had been married twice. His second wife and two children, Viola and Robert survive him. For many years he had been Commander of the Old Soldier's and Settlers' Reunion.
