Notes for: Nila Pearl Bodine

She is listed in the obituary of Ray Bodine as being married to a Ragsdale in Andrews, Texas.

I got a message from Linda Kay (Bodine) Wooten in November of 2002 with some information on this family. She said that Luther Bodine, her father Morris Jack Bodine, Leon Ray Bodine, and Nila Pearl Bodine all grew up and died in the Colorado City, Texas area. These are all siblings.

From Ronny Bodine:
