Does any one have information on this family group?
M W Wiley, b-1827 in Ohio Eliza J Wiley, b-1830 in Ohio They are listed in the 1880 census living with thier 7 children in Soledad, Monterey Co., CA and were farming. All the children were born in CA, the oldest was born in 1855, and the youngest was born in 1874.The children's names were:Leander, Joseph, Lincoln, Jane, Wheeler, Nellie, and Alice.
This is the only Wiley family group I have found, where the father was born in Ohio, and they were living in CA before 1860.
I am trying to find out if they may have been the parents of Gertrude Wiley,(aka Lizie) who was born 1860 in CA. She was my g-grandmother and I know very little about her, other than her father was born in Ohio. She married my g-grandfather, Samuel Martin Thomas in Sonoma County, CA on 3/26/1878, bore two children, and they later divorced. She kept her daughter, Francis Thomas; and Samuel kept his son, Nelmer Thomas. The family lost track of Gertrude and Francis, but I would like to learn more about them.
