I'm trying to find information on my great grandfather, Lewis Fraley. He was born in Kentucky and died in West Virginia. His son was John William Fraley Sr, and my father was John William Fraley Jr. John Sr went by William. Lewis was born roughly 1860 in Kentcuky and died on Dec 12th 1925 in West Virginia. Lewis last name is occasionally listed as Fraly, no "e".
John William Fraley Sr was Born March 5th, 1904 in Kentucky, his death was November 7th 1971 in West Virginia.
I believe both Lewis and John William Sr were married multiple times. John Sr was married to Thelma Skiles, and with son John Jr he also had daughter Mary Alice Fraley.
I found a record that listed Lewis father as Robert and mother as Mary.
I have a marriage record of Lewis marrying Elizabeth Adkins. Elizabeth had father Owen and mother "L.E"
At this time I have no information on Robert or Mary and am unable to determine where my family line originated.
There is a margin for error on Lewis definitely being John William's father, or my great grandfather. It is even possible Lewis could have been an older brother, both from Kentucky. The assumption was that Lewis was the father of John William Fraley Sr because of age difference, the two were not speaking.
John William Jr was a Korean War veteran and he had 3 sons and 2 daughters. Christopher Michael Fraley, John William 3rd, David Odell, Mary Leah and Diana Lynn. John William Jr passed away in September of 1988. He has many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
If anyone has any information at all please post or contact me.
