Abram Gauley Family Tree
Abram Gauley (came from Skye)
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.
