Lynn, I think you are referring to Ronald Hatley from Neosho, Missouri. At the time he died, I was contacted and asked this same question. I only corresponded with him a few times and I have no idea about any of his family. He sent me some information on Littleton Perry Hatley, but at the time he didn't have much. He didn't bring the information down past himself. I do know his father's family; brothers and sisters and who most of them married. Most of them are deceased. He didn't list any brothers or sisters for himself and no wife. I think he was unmarried, but he didn't specifically tell me this.
So, I guess you can do whatever you would like to with the information you received that belonged to him. Lina Boyd
