I have Joseph Henry Critz Scales in my line but I show him married to Jemima Gentry. Could he have been married twice? And I have an Effie Scales b.6 Feb. 1885, married to Floyd R. "Edgar" Walker. Their son was named Henry Scales.
I have a letter from this Effie Walker dtd. in the 1960's and she lived at Stephenville, TX at the time.
could this be your family? My gr father was Horace "Ed" Scales and my gr mother was Alline Walker Scales. They lived around Erath and Hood Counties in Texas then moved to Colorado then on to California where they died in 1940.
