Re: Alleys of IN,MO
I don't know if I can help you out or not, but let me see what I can do.This information is from ALLEY ANCESTORS, by Gene Alley.There are some errors in this book, but it does give a person a good place to start.
I have on Page MO-12 Louis Leonard b. 1889 in MO m in 1911 in MO to Ella L. Girdner b. 1890 d. 1952 both in MO.
Louis Leonard is the son of William Dayton Alley b. 1860 IN d. 1936 and Lettie Jane Lowry b. 1866 MO d. 1943.They were married in 1886.
William Dayton Alley b. 1860 IN d. 1936 is the son of William Bonaparte Alley b. 1828 in IN d. 1863 in IN and Sarah Jane Coen b. 1837 IN d. 1923 MO.William and Sarah were married in 1854.The book says that Sarah moved her family to Mercer Co., in 1865 after the death of William.
William Bonaparte is the son of James M. Alley b. 1805 VA and d. 1876 MO and Anna Alley b. 1804 VA and d. 1880.They were married in 1825.
James M. is the son of Peter Alley b. 1782 VA d. 1858 MO and Martha/Patsy b. 1785 VA d. 1859 MO, parentage unknown.
Anna Alley is the daughter of Jonathan Alley b. 1764 VA d. 1842 IN, and Mary B. Porter b. 1771 NC d. 1842 INThey were married in 1790.
Peter Alley is the brother of William H. who married Mary Jones.So this would be your connection, I guess.Does that help?If you have any more questions about this, let me know.I have another source that may help with this or maybe the Girdner group.
By the way, I think you are talking to my daughter, Kim.
