I am researching the family of John Thomas RAPER and Tranie May GARDNER. John was born 01-03-1903, and died 04-1972. Their children are Ann, Shirley, Dorothy, Jetty, Edna, and a son. John Thomas was buried in Hughes, St. Francis. Tranie still lives there, but is incapacitated. I am also searching for information on John James SNELL and Mary Ethel EASTMAN. They had 2 sons, Johnnie ( nickname Billy ), and James Leonard (nickname Jimmy ). Jimmy married Edna Earl RAPER in Lee county on 01-03- 1945. Their first child is Johnnie Thomas. I need to know where and when he was born. Their second child is Charlotte Joyce, who was born 12-27- 1949 in Monroe (don't know if Monroe is a town or a county). I believe that John James served time in prison for killing his father in law Frank EASTMAN. John James was later shot and killed. I am very eager to find more info about this family.
