Tilghman Aley family

Cedar Vale, Kansas

Lynn Leonard shared this photo of her ancestors, Tilghman Howard Aley and his wife Alice Conklin Aley of Cedar Vale, Kansas. The Aley's lived in Cowley County.

Their children are:

  • In Back: Edwin Bruce (Bruce) Aley
  • In Front, Left to Right: Ruby Alice, Nellie B., Benjamin F.(Ben), and John Howard (Howard)

This picture would be circa 1890. Mr. and Mrs. Aley were on the train that wrecked in 1904, having left the children at home.

They later had two more children, Chester who died before the train wreck, and Mary.
