She was buried 2 on 31 Oct 1985 in Pierce Cemetery, Ouachita Parish, Louisiana. Neiver was employed as a nurse's aid in Sep 1950 in California.

Neva told her granddaughter, Barbara Frost, about her education. When she was 4 years old, an older sibbling had to take her to school to watch her. One day, Neva told the principal she wanted to attend school. He told her she was too young. She told him she could spell "elephant". She then sat in the principal's lap and proceed to spell "elephant." The principal was so impressed that he allowed her to attend school from that day on. She attended school for 3-4 years before having to dropout. Barbara said after she turned 18, her grandmother wrote her about six times per year until her death.

Neva was able to obtain on October 7, 1957 a Delayed Certificate of Birth based upon the following evidence:
Supporting Record 1, Class A: Federal Census of 1900 - Date of birth listed as March 1900, Mother: Florence Arrant, Father: Calvin Arrant, Date of original entry: 6-1-1900.

Neva died at home: 1518 Joe Bill Street, West Monroe, Louisiana 71291

Neiver married (1) James Joseph Alford CAPLES Sr. son of Alfred Buford CAPLES and Cornelia Angeline BELL on 5 Jan 1915 in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana. James was born on 27 Apr 1890 in Newton County, Mississippi. He died on 15 May 1933 in Union Parish, Louisiana. He was buried 1 on 17 May 1933 in Pierce Cemetery, Ouachita Parish, Louisiana.

Joe was a logger and layer of roadbeds in Louisiana.

Joe's cause of death is a bit of a mystery. He got ill to his stomach and was treated at home. It became obvious he needed medical treatment. He died during surgery at the age of 43. The doctors said he had an "ulcerated stomach".
Some in the family believe he may have had cancer. His son, Alton, died from colon cancer at the age of 37, and one of Alton's children (in the 40's) is suffering from colon cancer. There could be a genetic problem for some members of the family. Joe's other descendents have not suffered from this problem. But we do not know if other branches of the family has the problem.
Joe's father was 66 when he died, but we do not know what he died from.
Joe's mother lived to be 76, a respectable age for the time period.
