Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Syleste living in Oklahoma. I have been researching my maternal and paternal family genealogy for many years. I became interested in genealogy when I had to do a family genealogy paper in junior high school. The information I gathered over the years was to make sure each ancestor was a descendent and not a guess of he/she has the same surname so he/she must be ancestor.

In 2006 I came across this wonderful website and decided to place my ancestors' interment page on Find a Grave. Any one that has taken the time to research their family history can identify with the hard work that goes along with researching; so please be considerate and do not duplicate any family member interment page I entered on FAG. I would appreciate if you would just link the interments I've completed to your memorial page in the Virtual Cemeteries area on FAG or other websites you have. Thank you for understanding.

My sincere thanks to my cousin Dale Standifer, Grandson of James Martin Hembree and Mary Lowe and my dear mother-in-law for the great help they have been.

My family search started with my beloved mother, Kathy Mae Punneo-Gilleland daughter of Joyce Hembree and Jimmy Punneo.

Vitello (paternal family) from
Logansport, Cass County, Indiana.

Hembree (maternal family) from Atoka Oklahoma.

Houchin (maternal family) from Oklahoma.

Lowe (maternal family) from Oklahoma.

Punneo (maternal family) from Carnegie

Hi Syleste,

I'm a photo volunteer in Chickasha, I added a grave marker photo for your grandmother on her memorial #101820740. Thought you would like to know. If you want more photos, close ups, or different views, let me know. Her Fairlawn burial location is Block 16, Lot 49, Space 3.

houchin family
my grandfather was Oscar Houchin. My dad was Cladie B. Houchin. My father gave me his grandfather's (Edward's) pocket watch probably 30 plus years ago. I restored it and gave it back to him to hang in a glass dome next to the watch my father received upon his retirement. That was 10 or 12 years ago. Dad passed away not long after that. I attended Virginia Johnson's funeral a few months ago, in Sunray, Texas. I grew up 20 miles away in Dumas, Texas. We knew her as "Shorty." She was my dad's sister. There is one sister (my aunt, Dorothy) remaining. Everyone else is gone. Good to share with you. David Houchin
