Yesterday’s paper included this article on descendants of Charles and Bertha Van Buskirk (left), who decades ago deeded the land to the city that became Van Buskirk Golf Course and parkland (and a community center) in south Stockton.
Quoted in the article was 86-year-old Marilyn Moore of Lodi, a niece of the late Van Buskirks. Last week, bankruptcy attorneys for the city took a written declaration from Moore.
With the trial resuming tomorrow for what the judge has said will be the final day, Moore’s testimony will be entered into the record. You can read the declaration and view pertinent documents here.
