My Brick Wall:

Raley 1810 PA/MD - died by 2 Sept 1867 in Londonderry Townshp, Bedford
Co, PA. Married Susan Jane
Miller 1820, VA - died after Sept. 1867. Earlier Raley's
may have come from Loudon Co,VA & possibly Susan Jane was a cousin.
This line has been a puzzlement for a long time.

I have no additional clues. There was a fire in Hyndman in the early 1950's &
