Wiley Bunion Ebey was William Major Ebey, Sr.'s son. William was my GG Uncle Willie, his brother was my Great Grandfather Robert Absolom Ebey. Uncle Willie's family has been highly researched by Jim Partin, a closer cousin to you than me. His Great Grandfather was William Major Ebey, Sr. He may have some helpful insight that I don't have. You may happen upon a message board entry of his on this or on the "Eby" message board.
