I had forgotten that I even replied to your message before. Marilyn Pank reminded me. Your mentioning your wife having an Uncle Clarence rang a bell. Somewhere along the line, the name Clarence had come up as possibly being a brother to James Wylie, so I am very interested in your wife's ancestors. James Wylie was supposed to have been orphaned, had an argument with his brothers and took off. We have all been trying to locate his birth place. The family's oral history gave Roanoke, VA as his birth place, about 1818. During WWII, one of the Wisconsin Tutor's, a descendant of James Wylie, said he ran into a man named Gravely that knew of James Wylie. He said that the plantaton that was owned by the Tutors had had 30,000 peach trees planted on it. If your wife's tree contains any information that can solidify this informaton, would sure appreciate getting it. Feel free to contact me directly if you wish.
