The Motley's that mostly began in Ezel Kentucky has now spread out to various ares. In the 1950's through the 1960's there were always family re-unions, held in Ky. one year, Ill. the next then to Ohio. These seemed to stop in the 1970's.
For the past 10 years, the direct decendants of James Motley have had reunions in and around Cincinnati, Ohio. Also, the past 10 years, it seems the direct decendants of Robert Lee Motley and Oscar Motley have had reunions in and around Ezel, Kentucky.
Picket Motley decendants are from Illinois and have had there get togethers as well, visiting Cincinnati and Kentucky also.
James, Robert, Oscar, and Picket are sons of Ratio Motley.
I have always had an interest in the family tree and have now decided to put an elaborate tree together. Jim Motley of California has sparked it all off.
If you have information on any of this please email me, Victor Motley, with the informaton.
I will do 4 seperate trees, one of each son, mainly because of the amount of decendants resulting from each one.
