Raley Family Genealogy Forum
Yes, Frances, Charles and Sarah Raley in my direct ancestors who came from Kershaw County, South Carolina in about 1818 and settled in Morgan County, Alabama. Charles was born, by my records, in 1764 in Onslow, North Carolina and died in 1839; and Sarah Owen Raley, in 1774 (some records say 1772)and died in 1865. Both are buried at Round Top Church near the old Raley farm. Charles was a Revolutionary War veteran. Their son Owen Raley (1801-1855) is in my direct line. His son William Raley (1831-1900) fought, along with his brother Jim, in the Civil War (but on the Union side, as did many men from that region!). My Grandfather was William Thomas Raley (1881-1950) and my father, William Barthel Raley (1909-1968).
