I'm looking for any information my great-grandfather William M. Foiles family. His father was Clem and he had a brother George, and two sisters, Caroline and Martha that I know of.
The only thing I know is my great grandfather, William M. Foiles was born abtOctober 1857 – 1862. I have also found documents with the spelling of his, and his children, last name as FOYLES.The 1900 Knox Co., IN Census shows his birth as October 1862; the 1910 Pulaski Co., AR Census, shows his age as 53 yrs, making him born about 1857, and his death certificate shows his age as 56 yrs, at the time of his death on 8 Oct 1916, which would make his year of birth abt 1860.William M. FOILES died in Dermott, Chicot Co., Arkansas and was brought to Little Rock to be buried in the Oakland Cemetery. His death certificate shows that his fathers name was Clem FOILES.His obituary said that he was survived by a brother, George FOILES of Indiana and two sisters, Caroline Robil and Martha Nitig.
Since Wm. M. FOILES’ brother survived him in 1916, I searched the 1920 IN Soundex to see if he may still be there. I found that there was only one FOILES in the whole state, and his name was George. I believe that this George is my family, but I would like to be sure.
