Overl(e)ys in Fleming, KY (Peter's Ancestors?)

Hi, everyone! I truly hope someone on this site has information pertaining to those Overl(e)ys that migrated to the Fleming, Kentucky, area. My great-grandfather, William Myrtle Overley, was born September 26, 1888, in Fleming County, Kentucky. I have no information on who his mother/father were. I am fairly new to the "Overly" genealogy area, but from what I've gathered so far, it appears that he may have been a descendant of Peter Overly/Overley (who at one time, I believe, lived in either Maryland or Virginia) of Fleming County, Kentucky. One reason I believe this to be true is that some of the known descendants of Peter Overly have names identical to those my great-grandfather gave his own children (i.e., "Milford," "Thomas," and "Mary Jane"). Does anyone have a complete list of the descendants of Peter, or can anyone help me make a connection to the infamous "Martin, Sr." of Lancaster, Pennsylvania? I greatly appreciate any assistance!
