Looking for any information on the family history of my grandfather who was Samuel Joseph Gatley born in Manchester in the late 1800's. I know that he had a brother named Joshua and the they worked for a cricket club there. Samuel married Sarah Ellen Keegan and came to the United States..If any one has information on this man I would deeply appreciate hearing from you.

I stumbled on to your search notes, and although I have no information on what you are looking for, I was delighted to see another Gatley. We are few in number around the world, and I am just getting involved in doing my geneology. I must admit, my cousin David Gatley, Poway, CA, has done a lot of research on GATLEY, and might like to exchange information with you, he is at In any case, I stumbled on to your notes, looking for start. My father, born 1899 in Kensignton, Maryland, to Albert S. Gatley. In any case, its nice to see another Gatley. I am a member of the LDS Church, Yuma, AZ. I am a High Priest, and currently the Ward Missionary Leader.

thank you for responding to my message..yes it is great to speak with someone with the same last brother and I are doing this research and have found some good information on our grandfather..we have gone back 4 generations on his side and 3 generations on my grandmothers is really neat to be able to pass this information down to my 4 daughters and my grandsons..I live in Florida and my brother is going to Utah to the LDS records to see if he can get anymore information..he informed me that there are alot of Gatley's in Utah..Well, have a good night and keep in touch.

Check out Caldwell CO., KY for Jemima Gately, widow of John Gately (via Henry Co., TN, Caswell Co, NC) John was apparently the son of William Gateley of Caswell Co, NC (will probabed there). Jemima and John had children that crossed over into IL, other names were Heneritta Gateley that married a Kesner, Susanna Gateley, brother John Gateley, etc. According to another researcher there is a document in a history book in Green Co, MO that lists the children of John and Jemima..... I have no proof myself, but if you are interested I can put you in touch with the other researcher.

Hi Nancy,
I just got back from Salt Lake. I found some more on the gatley's and the women they married.
I also found out when John Gresko and "Annie" as he called his wife, immigrated. Was unable to find the ships they came over on, so I was unable to find their birthplace. I also found when John was naturalized.
