As I said I would appreciate anything I can get on this family of Markley's. In the 1970's we had reunions in Barbour Co. W.V. and a bunch from this line came to them for a good many years. They always thought they were a part of ours but we never got any proof.
I found in the 1860 census a James Brooks living with this family and he married Charlotte Markley d/o Samuel Markley, brother of my husbands Christian Markley. Also in 1860 Joseph Markley Jr. father of Elihu, was found living with Adam Markley, another brother of Samuel and Christian.
