Your family most likely isn't related to my Perry Bruner. My Perry couldn't have passed for white and while he may have been born in Alabama, his family settled in Indian Territory what is now Seminole,
Hughes,and Okmulgee counties, Oklahoma. On Ancestry.com I viewed a Florida death record for Ardell P Bruner born 11-1-1892 died 07-06-1979 in Duval,Florida. Might be yours.If you write the Social Security Adminstration in Baltimore, they will send you for a fee a record of this death and related genological info on Ardell. Happy huntings.
