Abram Gauley family

They farmed near Lucknow, Ont. I think the children were born there (check with vital statistics) Later moved into Goderich. Grampa G. was a cooper, had learned his trade in Skye, where he came from.Margaret Gauley - about 1900   Goderich, Ont

One day Grampa G. was trying to put a hayrack on a wagon,- Gramma G. saw this and rushed out to give a hand. She lifted too much and strained her heart. She collapsed. Was sick a lot after that, spent mst of her time in bed-- one day she died. The children (Mamma was 9 or 10 at the time) Uncle Isaac was 14. They were farmed out among relatives. Mamma went to an Aunt & Uncle in London who had a small tailor shop. I don’t have too much about Grampa Gauley except that he was out in a small boat on Lake Huron soon after losing Gramma. He evidently fell in or had a heart attack and died in the lake. He was 60 years old. Could be buried in a cemetery in Goderich.Margaret Bachelder and Doris in Alberta about 1910
Gramma Gauley had some brothers. One lived in Detroit,- Peter Henderson. Mamma and Aunt Lizzie went to the World’s Fair with him. She said he was very tall and had red hair.
