This has been a very interesting search for family members and information. I was very fortunate to find my biological father, Bobby Ray Aytes family on the internet. A lot of time and effort was spent by other members of the "Aytes" family (Betty-Aytes Bowell & Vera Luce)compiling the information. This has been a great find in regards to where my fathers family came from and who they were.
If anyone has a photo of Bobby Ray, I would definatley like to have a copy, as I did not know my biological father. He died when I was 3 years old.
My mother Nina Mae Loney,daughter of Gertie Riddle Loney. Gertie Riddle-Loney-Hammonds who was born in Eufala, Oklahoma on March 21, 1896. Grandmother died in 1993 in Coffeyville Kansas & was the youngest daughter of Stuart Riddle & Tokie-Nero-Riddle. Gertie was the surviving sister of Rufus, Rayford, Fibbie, Stewart, Cub, William and Sam. Grandmother (Gertie) met and married James Loney and had four children Cloetel (Punch), James Jr., Leontine(June)and Nina Mae. Punch, June and James preceeded her in death. Nina is has celebrated her 70th Birthday in July 2006.
I have some photo's of other family members of the Loney & Riddle clan. I have posted some photos of Tokie and some of her children.
Nina Mae's marriage to Edward Clisson Warren produced five children, Diana Lynn, Dartagnan Rostine, Dawn Renee, Percy Julius and David Anthony Warren.
Bobby Ray Aytes, my biological father died in Muskogee,Oklahoma.
My father, James Ford, married my mother in 1965. James has one son from previous marriage, Albert Ford.
Tokie and children all have roll numbers to the Creek Nation. Stewart Riddle was a Choctaw, but I have not been able to get much information on him and his side of the family. I would be interested in any photo's or information on the Nero Riddle Loney Aytes family.
