WOW!Two surnames in one answer.But, no, I don't think my A.J. King was anything like a minister.To the best of my knowledge he was Irish Catholic. He was married twice had 14 children and was not a miner, he was a coal mine owner.My understanding is that he was very rich.My King family did live in Uniontown, PA for awhile and in fact I think both of my A. J.'s parents may have died there. I have the dates but no obits or the exact place. I am not sure when A.J. and family moved down to WV but do think is was the Charleston area. He was a cousin to my husbands grandfather and employed him in his mines in the early part of the century. I would like to connect with any of their descendents.
As for the Cale family I really know little except that D.P. Cale married Nancy A. Sandy. It is the Sandy family that is connected to me.Nancy Sandy was a sister to my gg grandfather and ofcourse I would like to connect with any of their descendents. From census records I know that there were Cale's in IL and KS, perhaps his siblings. I did not know that there was a Cale book but if there is no mention of David Preston then it is of no use to me.
It does interest me though that your wife has both surnames in her lineage from places that I am sure that both my families were at some point in time. If you want to e-mail me privately I will give you all I know about either family, just know it isn't much. Judee
