Re: William and Mary Bradford Boley
Thanks so much for setting me straight on F. M. Smalley's name.It's certainly easier to find someone when you have the right name.Can you tell me which county White Cemetery is in?There are several Oklahoma cemeteries by that name.
Apparently, F. M. left Oklahoma and went back to Missouri after Ella's death.I found him buried in Cass County.His son, Albert, is there, too.The girls may be there, but I don't know their married names.
Do you know if Ella's sister, Emma, married?I found a marriage record for an Emma Boley to J. F. Kerles on 31 Oct 1880, but don't know if this Emma was Ella's sister or not.Kerles is not a very common name and I haven't found many of them around, so there's a chance someone transcribed the name wrong.The gap between the 1880 and 1900 censuses doesn't help matters.
Did you know that there is a BOLEYPAW message board now?One of William and Mary's descendants just posted something a day or two ago, so be sure to take a look, if you haven't already done so.
