Descendants of William James "Jim" Hefley
Submitted by Sharon
My main concern, with this family is Allison Nelson Hefley and his marriage to Dorie M. Garner.
So many questions, and no diffinent anwsers. If any one can clarify, when Dorie and Allison, died.
Or if for sure he married a second time---his part of this is specualative at this time--
