My mother in law is Etta Joyce Barrentine (Nelson). Her son is Paul J. Nelson. Her dad's name was Rainey Lee Barrentine and she has one remaining brother as well as
herself alive. R.L. Barrentine. She does not know what
happened to her brother James Henry and her father's brothers name was Edgar Barrentine. Her grandmother on her
father's side was Martha Redd. Her father married Wrissie Ward. They lived in Arkansas and eventually made it to
California. She and her son currently live in Las Vegas.
Does this sound familiar to you? She is curious about
family connections. Joyce tells me that Edgar lived in Oklahoma and worked for Indian Affairs or something like that.
