Oscar Clyde Vallery was married several times in his life - Roseline Brossett (1876-1915), Luella Julia Bynog (1891-1969), Olena Williams Henley, and lastly, Katherine "Dolly" Coutee Cooley (1881-1967). He was from Natchitoches, Louisiana then later moved to Monroe, Louisiana. He had a half-brother, Amos Bennett (1873-1919), to him through his mother, Mary Ann Cherron (1841-1929) and he was said to have had a half-sister on his father's side. But I've never heard a name for his father. People said his nickname was 'Charmain' but that's all I've ever heard. On his death certificate, it lists Mary Ann as his mother and a man named Frank Vallery as his father but I'm not sure who this Frank is. I thought possibly he could be Francois Vallery (1853-????), brother of Benoist Vallery but I'm not sure. Benoist's son, Gilmer "Boy" Vallery, was a distant cousin of Oscar's and according to stories they were "raised like brothers". But again, I have no idea of how closely they were related to figure out just who Oscar's father was. If anybody knows this more about this, please let me know.
