Joe,

I'm writing about your query you posted on ancestry.com about William Henry Christley and Frances Warner. I am not a direct descendent but a distant cousin. According to my records, William Henry Christley is the son of George W. Christley and Elsey M. Farmer. Elsey was the daughter of John Lawrence Farmer and Nancy Mary Shockley. My gg-grandfather, John Henry Farmer was a brother of Elsey Farmer. I am hoping to connect with one of Elsey's descendents to gain further knowledge about her side of the family tree.

Here is what I have on this family. I hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks,
Tim Waddell
