My gr gr grandmother was Mary Caroline CHALK DELANEY.
She had a brother James Whitfield.
James had a son J. Houston who married Anna. This is probably the Jim Chalk.
He was born 1867 and died in 1967. I would love to know more about his
siblings and even his own children . Actually my dad probably knows if this
is the same. MOM, how about asking and letting us know!
If you have any stories to share, go right ahead.
