I see you have a George W. Raley listed here. I have one in my tree who was my 2nd great grandfather. George Washington Raley , and his father was Nathan Green Raley. I know that Nathan married a Sarah Pate in 1845 Barbour Co.
I cannot answer your question directly I know but perhaps there could be a link between your G.W. Raley and my Nathan Raley. I had thought that Nathan's father was JD Raley, but this could be wrong. I have that Nathan's mother was named Elizabeth, not sure as to her last name or date of birth though.
