Bio and Links

I am 71 years old. At the age of 52 I became interested in family history because of my husband's daughter. She wanted some information about her family. Others had promised information but did not come thru with it so I told her I would help her. It was so much fun I have continued with my research. I am always happy to help in the search and photo taking of a monument. I have been helped many times in the past and hope to help others in the future. One outstanding person in Camden, Missouri, Janice Pennington, who is now my dear friend, is the main reason I became interested in Find A Grave. Through Genforum I requested one picture of a monument in a cemetery fairly close to her area. She saw my request, contacted me and told me she would get the picture for me. Not only did she get that picture but she sent me over 50 other pictures of my ancestors graves in the same cemetery. Because of her and also her husband Larry, I wanted to help others find graves of their families and take photo's of the headstones. That is when I found Find A Grave. Talk about getting your prayers answered, I did. Another lady, Roberta, who lives in Indiana, went to Kentucky and took over 70 pictures for me at 4 different cemeteries of my ancestors graves. The gratitude I have for these people makes me want to grab every photo request I can to help others.
If I can make a correction or add information to a memorial page, please let me know. If you would like to have one of my memorial pages transferred to you, (if they are not a member of my family), please let me know and I will do it. Please go thru the proper channels for any changes or transfers of a memorial page.

RE: Keith C Arey 11764166
Thank you for your reply. I do believe I saw one of his sisters Velma (Arey) Henderson that was not linked. I sent you an edit for her .
You do such a wonderful and excellent with all of your memorials. I am amazed at how well you do it. I was raised in Hopkins County and I remember knowing a lot of people in Greenville when I was growing up.

This is the ex-husband of a cousin of mine, Janis Kay Holt Williams (now Farquhar). I'll try to get parental information for John from her for you. They had a son, Mason Charles Williams (still living). I don't know if there was an obituary - likely would have been in the Odessa American newspaper.

Clayton McNeil
I would like thank you for all the work you do on Find A Grave, as a genealogist myself I know how much time and energy you have devoted to this site.

Clayton was my cousin and if you don't mind I would like to correct some of the information on Clayton. His father was Lon X. McNeil, a native born Texas, who lived in Snyder Texas at the time of Clayton's death. Some of the information on his death certificate is incorrect.

Lon is buried in Prairie Haven Cemetery in Hobbs NM.

Thank you again,

Paula Ruder
