I finally obtained a death certificate for my great grandfather William John Raley of Garrett Co. I also got his Civil War Pension file.
From the death certificate his father whom I had only had as being Sam Raley is indeed Simon Raley. While in Cumberland, there were estate records for a Simon Raley with Henry Ruckle Sr Admin and widow, Mary. I am now sure that this is Mary Ann Ruckle, daughter of Henry.
Looking for people to share any info about Simon Raley b. abt 1819 and d. 1860.
