I know this comes many years after your message was posted but I have only just started looking into my family tree. My name is Paul Andrew Colley but my Grandfather (James Edward Colley) related a story about the "Edwards Millions". My great aunt Caroline (his sister) told the same story but it centred around their father William (my Great Grandfather) got to the US in the late 1800's for an appointment with the solicitors about a family inheritance. At the last minute, he changed his mind and got of the boat to the US. When I was younger I didnt pay this story much credit but more recent research has indicated there may be some truth in it. If you know anything about Colleys from the Staffordshire area of England I'd appreciate anything you may know. I am aware there may have been a marriage between James Colley and Mary Ann Edwards somewhere around the 1850's in Staffordshire UK.

Kindest regards,
Paul Colley
