"Looking for the Parents of Edward Smalley born in England"
I am looking for the parents of Edward Small/Smalley born in 1600
in Bidesford, Devon, England. I have researched several sources and
have gotten confused. Several have stated that Sir Walter Raleigh was
his father and Elizabeth Throckmorton was his mother. Edward is not
listed as a child in other sources. But I read that he changed Edward
and his brother, John Small/Smalley, to protect them. It is strange that Walter had 2 other sons whose last names weren't changed. I sure
would appreciate any help to get this straighten out.
I am also looking for information on my direct Smalley line. It begins with Ralph Elmer Smalley born in Sioux City, Iowa in 1913. He is my father. He moved to Texas during the late 1930s. He met and
married my mother in 1938. I was born in 1939.
Then, there was Elmer Rhodes Smalley(1873)-Illinois
Elmore S. Smalley(1845)-Pennsylvania
Nathanial Smalley(1814)-Penn. He had a son,(Reuben S. Smalley), who won the Congressional Medal of Honor in the Civil War.
Isiah Smalley(1790)-New York
