My husband's grandfather was Ivan Shinall.Because he does not keep in touch with his father's side of the family, we have no knowledge of his ancestry.
The only information I have gathered so far is that his granfather was born 3/2/1916, died 6/17/1997 and is buried at Potter Memorial Cemetery in Arkansas.
There are a few other tombstones there that I believe may be those of his parents.John Henry Shinall (born 5/6/1880; died 4/15/1957) and Minnie Ray Shinall (born 4/13/1893; died 9/26/1983).Through rootsweb, I have found a record of a "Minnie Ola Ray" who is listed as the wife of John Shinall.
Also, I have found an 1880 census record (District 13, Greene, TN) that lists John Shinall, age 6 months, son of John (birthplace VA) and Sarah (birthplace TN) Shinall.
Does anyone have any informaiton for any of these names?I would greatly appreciate your help!
