Thanks for responding to my posting! Let me try to explain what I know: Lovica Amanda (Lola) Whaley was the daughter of John Whaley and Elizabeth Portman. Another daughter, Mary Emily Whaley married my gggrandfather, James McIntyre. They had 1 son, James E. McIntyre. James the father died soon after his son's birth. Mary Emily remarried a Hugh G. Wright and they had 2 daughters, Anola and Harriet. Mary Emily died soon thereafter and Anola went with her father to Ohio and Harriet was adopted by John Colony. It appears that Augustus married Mary Emily's sister, Lola, and then his father John Colony adopted Lola's niece, Harriet.
Anyway, that is how it appears to me. Yes, I would really like any information that you could provide about Harriet, the half sister to my ggrandfather James E. McIntyre, as well as information about the Colony family. Seems they were great people to adopt those children. Is there any Whaley information that I can share with you?
Pleae e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can share mailing addresses for some of this information sharing.
