Hello Gayle, To tell the truth, I only have heard him referred to as Val. He was my Grandmothers Brother and as far as I know I've never met him. He is listed in the 1910 Alabama census in Newton, Alabama which in Dale County. He has a wife named Annie. My Grmother and Grfather are listed with him as well as their 2 children, Clara and John L. which was my Aunt and my Father. I picked him up again in the 1930 Amarillo Texas which is in Potter County with a different wife and 3 children. He had a half sister Bessie who lived in Eufaula, Alabama. My grmothers name is Ida (Allen) Forehand. My grfather was Carlton S. Forehand. I would appreciate any information you might have on this guy.
Thanks for contacting me and offering to help. I hope that we can be a help to each other.
