This was a friend of my grandfathers in Caney Oklahoma in 1936. I’ve been told he joined the service. Does anyone recognize him? My grandmother met with him again at a parade in Caney (1986), they were dear old friends. My mother only remembers that he was Choctaw. If he is still with us he may have stories that I would so love to hear. If not…maybe someone in his family does . Please look at the attached photo and/or pass it on.

Does anyone remember anything about Carl Jarnagin or Pauline McLain? Lived in Caney about 1936 or so?

i do not know these people, however there is a jarnigan post on the genealogy board recently.

have you looked on or or for the social security death index 1964-present. maybe an obituary can help you. once you have a date of death, you can try to get a copy of the obituary from your local public library interlibrary loan program.

I finally have the photo posted. Does anyone know who this is? Thank you

His name may be Gilbert “Choc” Charleston. He may have stories of my grandparents. Pauline (McLain) and Carl Jarnagin. I would love to hear them. Thank you
