I am seeking information about my father, Floyd Woodall. He was born 30 January 1912 in Muskogee, Oklahoma (I'm guessing the place of birth). Last known address was 74401 Keefeton, Muskogee, Oklahoma. He was an employee of the Muskogee, Oklahoma Police Department from 1944 (approximately) until 1957 (approximately). He died March 1974 in Muskogee, Oklahoma (I am guessing place of death. he is buried in Muskogee, Oklahoma. I am seeking any information or relatives, children, brothers, sisters, mother, father or grandchildren.

Thanks for your reply. I am Roger and Rodney's cousin. My mother was Ruth's sister Mary Ellen. Also, I believe that Rodney's sister Jackie was married to my step-dad (Howard Pendley). I use to spend my summers with Ruth and her family on their farm outside of Coyle when I was a kid. I and my brother Jim are a little younger than Rodney's older brother. I live in Jacksonville, Fl, retired from the Navy, wife and five children (none at home) and nine grand children. In case you all would like to talk sometime my phone number is (904)642-3721. In what city do you all live in? I know Ruth died a few years ago while living in Ponca City. I also believe Bonnie died there and is buried there. Nice to have heard from you and Rodney. I don't know if he remembers me or not. Hope to hear from you soon.

Glad to hear that we are all connected. We just had a buster reunion in Arkansas City. Jackie came for it, and stayed a week with us, it was nice to catch up. Yes mother, Ruth died Dec 20, 1991, Grandma Buster (Bonnie) died 31 Dec. 1984. We lost Dad, Vearis 26 June 1996. Also Terry (Pudge) died 30 April 1997 in Berryville Arkansas. Jackie is going to be 71 in Sept. But she is doing great. Looks maybe 60. I'll make sure Rod reads this e-mail and give's you a call. We've been doing family History, and have been working hard gathering up information. Maybe you have some that we don't. Talk with you later. Vicki Bentley

Vicki, glad to receive an answer to my e-mail son soon. Sorry to hear about Pudge passing, I didn't know. I am looking for information about Bonnie Buster, such as her place of birth, her father and mother's name, their place of birth and dates if you have that info. Also, any info on Ruth's sisters (Mildred, Lillian, Anne, Betty). Also, info on my mom (Ellen) place of birth. Also, their was a son named Charles Buster who died as a young child (any info on him). Do you know where Owen and Bonnie were married? I have info on Owne, such as his date of birth (month and year only) death, place of birth I know who his mother and father were, but no further info on them. He had a brother Archibald M. Buster (need his date of birth and place of birth). I also believe either Owen or Bonnie had a sister known as Bess (that is what I knew her by). I remember her very well, but can't find out how she fits in the Buster family.Any info that you might have would be helpful. I have thought of requesting a copy of Bonnie's death certificate, that would give me some info about her. I wish I had ask these qeustions as I was growing up, but the thought never entered my mine. I do remember Vearis, he use to give me some spankings during my summer visits to the farm. RuthI remember always, she use to drink 6 oz. bottles of coke and smoke all day. Jackie,I haven't seen since she was was living in Coyle and married to Joe Birdsong. I know when my step dad died, he left me and his son out of the will, so he and I have something in common. Well enough of me rattling on, any info you need, let me know, I might have it. If I think of anything I need,I will ask. Thanks for the reply.
David Pendley.

I can give you more if you want. Just let me know what you need other than this. Do you use any of the Personal Ancestoral Files?

If you do I could just make a copie of our family history, ofcourse you'll get information that you don't need, because my line is on it also.
(mothers side/Buster)
If we start with Rod we have his parents, (Ruth/Vearis),grandparents (Bonnie/Owen),g-grandparents (Jacob/Sarah) g-g-grandparents (Francis/Mary). Some children and dates also.
Let me know if this helps. We can work together to get the rest filled out.
Thanks for your help.

Vicki: You are a gold mine concerning the Buster family. The info you gave me will fill in a lot of holes in info I have. In your info you left out the date of death on Anne (25 Nov 1968), don't know if you have that or not. Also, I was wondering if this aunt Bess I knew growing up was one of Owen's sisters (Kate, Mabel or Carmen). Maybe Bess was a pet name someone called her. She raised Lillian's son Robert until he was grown, he never lived with Lillian and Chester. I never realized why his last name was Buster until years later. Let me go over the info you sent me and I will get back to you with any questions. I have a picture of Owen sitting up on a big black horse in front of some people (Arch is one of them, I wonder if these people could be some of his family). Will get back to you soon. Thanks alot for the info.
