Post to Matthew,

In sharing of information-

I have an Aunt Ruby, of whom was married to a man of he last name “Belvin”.

Therefore, my cousins-children of my Aunt Ruby-are of the last name “Belvin”.

They had lived in Boswell Years ago, now moved.

My cousins last name of Belvin is all I know I dont remember their father for I was very young.

Post in the manner of good intention.

Proud Choctaw-
Sonya
