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.

I am an active member of 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, Jackie 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.
