My name is Ruth Agnes "Cales" Podolinsky. I'm am 75 years old and live in the Pittsburgh Pa. area...My father was James Marion Cales, Born November 25, 1870 in Illinois. He had brothers John William, Lancing, George Washington and a sister Nancy. My Grandfather was Parkison Cales born in 1834....he had a brother Andrew Jackson Cales born in West Virginia in 1840, Andrew Jackson had a son Ora Jackson Cales.
I am from a family of 9 children...Ida, Carl, Dorthy, Edward, George, Ruth, Ruby, Rosie and Wanda. All but four are deceased....I have received much of this information from Dr. Robert L. Owen from San Francisco who was researching his family tree...His Great Gandfather was Ora Jackson Cales. There are rumors that Jesse James is a relative of the Cales family, this would be my Grandmother's side of the family (Parkison Cales wife). Don't know of her last name to do any research. Does anybody have information on the above?
