This is the family of Fales, that when we (my immediate family) moved to Wayland in the mid-1960's, my mother(11) (daughter of Bertha L. Greenman (Fales))(10) discovered the names of people in Wayland, Michigan, asked them if they knew of any Fales out in Missouri, where my mom's grand father, Clarence Walter Fales(9) grew up. Second to the youngest son of George Francis Fales(8), son of Ellis Peter Fales(7). I recall my mom asking Ivan Fales (who his daughters baby sat my siter and I during our early years, and I went to school with his son, Ivan Jr Fales). They told my mother "Sorry, but we do not know them and they are of no relationship to us", little did Ivan know, and very little did we know at that time also.
We did not know at the time (mid 1960's) that they were decendants of Samual Turner Fales(7), older brother of Ellis Peter Fales (6)
Makes Wayland more special to me, than it did, when growing up in the area.
