My name is Rilka Oakley (b. Sydney, Australia 1968) and I am the daughter of Gladney Oakley (born 11 February 1935 in Haverford PA)and my uncle is Prof. Bruce Oakley (born 21 October 1936 in Haverford PA). Their father was Cletus Odiah Oakley who was born 09 July 1899 in Ranger TX. As far as I know his parents were Benjamin Oakley and Tellia Richardson.
You mentioned Benjamin and Telly and Gladney and Bruce all of whom rang a bell with me.
I am looking for information about Benajmin Oakley and any other children he may have had besides Cletus.
