I know nothing about Veechal except what I posted. It is very possible that he had siblings, though. I am interested in learning more about my Dad's boyhood friends and their escapades. The Floyd Collins story is just one of the things Dad talked about. And being named Malcolm, I have always found the name Veechal to be another intriguing name. I wonder if it is a family name? Or a place name? Just how he came to have that name.
Please post what you may have about Geralds in Barren County, KY. Maybe someone will see it and make a connection with Veechal/Vechal. By the way, I noticed you have a posting re family in Hawkins Co., TN. My earliest known ancestors, Catherine/Catey Rogers and Oxley Johnson were md in Roane County, TN. I understand that many Rogers came from Hawkins County. But, again, I've no info re a possible connection between the two locations and/or families.
