FAMILIAL RELATIONSHIPS
After putting puzzle pieces together, I've come to the following conclusion about the familial relationship involving this memorial. This was in great part due to the key puzzle piece of Clarence Marvin Cunningham's death certificate, added with perfect timing by Cathy on his memorial just when I needed it most. The obit excerpts leading to the conclusion are provided below:


Spouse:
Clarence Marvin Cunningham

Son:
Billie Joe "Bill" Cunningham
(obituary states: "He was born December 26, 1928, on Cross Street in Hillsboro, son of the late Clarence Marvin and Mary Virginia Leatherwood Cunningham" and "Survivors include: his wife, Jean Cunningham of Hubbard; five children, Gene Cunningham and wife, Debby, Joe Cunningham and wife, Mary Ann, and Terry Cunningham and wife, Kathy, all of Hillsboro, Paul Cunningham and wife, Nancy, of Richardson and Victoria L. Cunningham of Olympia, Washington; one brother, Charles W. Cunningham of Hillsboro; two sisters, Ann Bowman and husband, Garry, of Hillsboro and Pat Land of Hubbard; 19 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren with another one on the way; and a number of nieces and nephews."

Son:
Charles William Cunningham
(obituary states: "He was born in Hillsboro, Texas, to the late Marvin and Mary Cunningham..." and "He was preceded in death by his wife, Bonnie Rae Conditt Cunningham; sisters, Doris Cunningham Stokes and Patricia "Pat" Land; and brother, Billy Joe Cunningham."

DIL through Charles
Bonnie Rae Cunningham

The notes on the internment listing was used to create the spousal relationship. If you have any more information on this family, please let me know.
