Notes

  • I remember Arlie somewhat.  I remember he lived at Sunray, Texas.  Irecall he once came by our house in Quanah, Texas, I think while onsome business travel.  I remember he was alone.  I have a strongmemory of his playing our piano for us in our living-dining room. Wealso went to Sunray to visit him and maybe other family members, atleast one time.

    For years after, every time I saw a Sunray DX service station, I wouldthink of Arlie in Sunray, Texas, the home of the petroleum company.Arlie may have moved later to Canyon, Texas.  His brother Harry livedin Canyon.  Information in the Social Security Index for an ArlieGreen that appears to be our Arlie, he was living in Borger at thetime of his death in 1981.

    Arlie was a piano tuner.  Cousin Loretta Gregory Gay has a businesscard of Arlie's for his piano service business in Sunray.

    I did not have information on Arlie's wife from our side of thefamily.  But Arlie had several children.  Their names were given to meby Loretta Gregory Gay.
    Randy, Ronnie, Ralph, Sheldon and Ray Dean, and one daughter Sharon.In October 2010 I got more complete names from Hugh Green, andinformation on Arlie's wife.  Arlie married Clara Edith Benger.

    "Their birth order as best we (who went to school with them) recall,was:  Ralph Crayton (died 1982) , Ray Dean, Ronnie, Sharon LaGayle,Sheldon Earl (died 1975), and Randy Sherman."
    --  Hugh Green, via email from Rachel Ruthart to Orville Boyd Jenkins,17 October 2010

    Several genealogies (seemingly sharing or copying information) reportArlie's middle name as Wesley.  This is confirmed by his son SheldonEarl's death certificate giving the full name of Sheldon's father.

    Freda Parsons appears to be Arlie's sister Freda, who was 6 years oldin the famliy census in 1930.  But the location on Sevier County,Arkansas (DeQueen area), does not fit with anything else I have onthis family.  In 1930 they wre in Parmer County (on the New Mexicoborder).  So why would Freda, the lone girl, be in western Arkansas in1935 (at age 11), then back in Parmer and married in 1940.  Why wouldArlie and Clara have moved to DeQueen, then back to Parmer County inthat short time?
