"My feelings are that in each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors, to put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the  family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe.  All tribes have one. We have been called as it were by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story!  So, we do.  In finding them, we somehow find ourselves ...."

More information on First Generation Stecker in USA
.
Marcus Stecher (Stecker)
Marcus Stecher (father of Sam Stecker) was born Mordche (Mordecai ?) Stecher in the town of Sambor, Lwow Galicia.  His birth year was 1875. His  parents are mother Feige (Fannie Markel Stecher) and father Itzig (Isaac) Stecher.  Apparently his given name was anglisized to Marcus and the surname changed from Stecher to Stecker in the USA. 

Marcus (Mordche) Stecher's mother, Feige, died in 1879 at age 50 when he was only four years old.

1900 marriage of Marcus Stecker: Marcus Stecher married Sadie Albert on December 23, 1900 in Manhatten, NYC.  His future wife Sara (aka: Sadie) Albert, age 20 years, came to to New York (Ellis Island) harbor on 10 June 1899 on the ship SS Palatia from Hamburg.  Her town of origin was Sambor, Galacia, Austria and she planned to stay with "Uncle Jude Rothbeg" according to the ship's manifest from the Ellis Island web-site. 
On the FamilySearch marriage document Marcus Stecher's father was listed as Isac (aka: Isaac) Stecher and mother as Feige (aka: Fannie) Markel.  Marcus' bride, Sadie Albert, father was listed as Samuel Albert and her mother as Chane (aka: Hannah) Gacher. 

Marcus Stecher (later Stecker) came from the town of Sambor in the eastern European region of Galicia (German: Königreich Galizien und Lodomerien mit dem Großherzogtum Krakau und  den Herzogtümern Auschwitz und Zator; official Polish: Królestwo Galicji i Lodomerii wraz z Wielkim Księstwem Krakowskim i Księstwem Oświęcimia i Zatoru) was a kingdom dependent to the Habsburg Monarchy, the Austrian Empire and Austria–Hungary
from 1772 to 1918. This historical region in eastern Central Europe is currently divided  between Poland and Ukraine. The nucleus of historic Galicia currently consists of the Lviv, Ternopil and Ivano-Frankivsk regions of western Ukraine. This explains the disambiguation of
the nativity descriptions associated with this family of Galizien, Galicia, Galacia, Austria, Poland, Polish, Yiddish, German.

Donna Polk Lipson
(grand-daughter of Dora Albert and Jack E. Polk and daughter of Sam and Edith Polk)
Donna Polk , eldest child of Sam Polk, married Alan Gordon Lipson of Detroit, Michigan and moved to Cleveland, Ohio.

From Alan Lipson 2001 Mumford bio at:
http://pre.docdat.com/docs/index-126196.html?page=60#1375808
Donna and Alan Lipson had two children.  The eldest was Benjamin, born in 1973, who upon graduating high school, went off to see the world with three friends. Ben ended up in Israel with Aish Ha Torah. He became orthodox after being bar mitzvahed at a reform temple. He found a soul mate Carin who also became orthodox after moving to Israel from Johannesburg, South Africa. They were married in Johannesburg in1997. We made the most of the wedding, touring Cape Town and going on a safari at a private game reserve near Kruger National Park.  Donna and Alan have two granddaughters and another grandchild due in January. They live in Ra'ananna Israel. Ben is still studying. The other son is Josh, born in 1976, is the opposite extreme. After graduating high school and spending a year at Ohio State, he worked for four years at various restaurants, auto repair and construction jobs until he decided to go back to Ohio State as a serious student. At least he spent a good part of the time in Colorado at ski resorts. In 1986 Donna and Alan were divorced.
