I posted the information on Henry and Frances Raley based on an old family letter that stated that Frances married a Raley (no first name given) and later moved to TX.According to the letter, nothing was heard from her after that.
I have no information other than the 1880 Tallapoosa census to possibly tie my Frances (Nave) to Henry Raley.The birth date is within her range and I could find no other Raley married to a Frances in AL.
Looks like your Charles Raley/Railey could be related to the Henry Raley found in 1880 Talapoosa AL census.They were both born in GA.I doubt that Charles would have been the son of my Frances (Nave) because Frances was found still living with her parents in DeKalb AL in 1860. I have not been able to find her as Nave or Raley in 1870 census.
In the 1880 Tallapoosa census, Henry and Frances Raley have a son, Charles, 8 yrs. old.He could possibly have been named for your Charles and is another indication of a possible family connection.
I would be interested in any other information you have on your Charles Raley/Railey.Parents, etc.Do you have any familyconnection to Cherokee or DeKalb, AL or TX?
