Hi - I could use some help sorting out the Gumley Jelleys. My ancestor, George Jelley b. 8 April 1832 was the son of Samuel and Mary. He and his brother, John, married Mawby sisters from Arnesby. George married Elizabeth (Betsy) and John married Lucy. Elizabeth Jelley died in 1873. Afterward their family splintered. Her oldest son, Remus, had emmigrated with her parents, Simon and Mary Mawby, to Ohio. About 1882 the other sons, John and Walter Jelley also emmigrated. A younger sister, who was raised by one of George's sisters - Sarah Jelley - married to Richard Burnnett emigrated in 1908 with her husband, daughter, and George Jelley. George died in Michigan in 1915.
So many of the Jelleys in Gumley seemed use the same first names with no middles names that I find it difficult to separate them.
