Whalens/Wileys in 1880s Kentucky

I am searching for Whalens that lived in the Franklin County Kentucky area in the 1880s. Richard was born in Tennessee in the 1850s, his parents were, Henry and Lulu (lnu)Whalen. I know Richard came to Kentucky (Franklin area) in the 1880s and he married Sarah Ann or Belle Wiley. Sarah had three sons, John, Owen and my grandfather Jerome (Rome). Sarah died approx. 1892 when Rome was eight years old. Apparently a relative of Sarah raised the boys, her name was Damarius (Mary)Wiley. Richard moved to the central Ky. area and lived in the Madison County area and also lived in Valley View in Jessamine Co. Richard was settled in Fayette County at his death. He married three more times after Sarah's death and I believe he may have fathered at least one more child by Margaret Boner Hager. The son's name would have been Eldred or Eldridge Hager or Whalen. I would appreciate anything on the Whalens or Wileys in Franklin County Kentucky (perhaps the Bald Knob area).
