Alley descendants in & around Norman, Oklahoma
I am looking for any descendants of Charles Alley,b Ireland 1832, was a member of the 5th Iowa Cavalry,whose son was Professor John P Alley of Oklahoma City University, b 1875 d 1944; whose son, we think, was John Newton Alley possibly married to Mary A Alley. The last mentioned John N Alley b 1912- 1994, lived in the Norman area at least for part of his life.
Charles and his wife Zaider Irene Judd had quite a few daughters also but we don't know their married names or have any other record of them. Their brother Prof John Alley must have been fairly well known on his time, wrote several publications (eg, Elements of Govt; papers on various cities around the world, eg Grenoble in France, etc)
JN Alley was part of the Dept of Modern Languages at OU in the early 1930's at least (possibly later).
Any information would be greatly appreciated. We have been able to contact descendants of Charles' 3 other brothers and have much to share.
