Gay has several compilations of black as well as white names.

      The late Mary Ellen Tindle, whose book on Choctaw Co. cemeteries was published in 1988, has information on her own family lines and other families in other parts of the country. Her step-son J. D. Tindle wanted the papers placed where they would benefit the public. Her information was organized and placed in the Tindle-Morris file cabinet in the county library.
      J. D. Tindle is in charge of the LDS records in the church right next to his home on Highway 17 South of Butler near Toxey.
