Re: Civil War Letter from Gideon Oyler
Dear Mr. Oyler,

Yes, I believe the Oyler line I am searching belongs to your Oyler family.My husband was a Casey, as are my sons and grandchildren.I am doing this research to have for them.
My husband's grandmother was Martha Olive Oyler.She was born Dec. 5, 1878.I met her and she was a very tall regal lady, with a pleasant smile.
Her father was Gideon Oyler, who was said to be the illegitimate son of Mary Oyler, who later married a man named Macaroni.Due to research I have come to believe this man's name was Maroney.
I was told that our Gideon was married to Rachel Endsley.I believe he was Gideon Alexander, but have always been confused by the names Gideon Elias and Gideon Alexander.
Can you sort them out for me.Thank you for your help and for the letter you are going to send.
