In Reply to: Vales of Arkansas by James Whitman of 56

Hi James,
Most of my Vailes family lived in Grant Co. Ark. and alot of them are still there. My gggrandfather John W. Vailes was born in Ark. on Dec. 26,1856 and I was just wondering if maybe he had a brother. I have had a hard time finding out anything about him but he had three sons--William Andrew (my ggrandfather), J.P.(Pearl), and James(Jim). Uncle Jim was not born until Feb. 16,1891, but I wonder if he may have been named for an uncle. I will keep an eye out for your James Edward Vales though. Interesting though that your James and my John were born abt. a year apart and lived in the same county. There must be a connection. Will contact you here again if I find anything, or you can contact me at
