The Ancestors and Descendants of James Gale

The Ancestors and Descendants of JAMES GALE
Compiled By Mae Gale Wilkins McGrath
(Today I scanned all 187 pages of this wonderful little book in PDF file format on the beginning Gale families in Western America to share with over 5,000+ descendants of James Gale and his two wives Sarah and Elizabeth.  Only a few descendants have an original copy of this book so this website makes available the genealogies and stories of these early Pioneers for all to share.  Gary Foster E-mail

Gale family members)

The Franklin Cemetery is just 2.2 miles south east of Duncan, Arizona on US Hwy. 70 and approximately 3 miles north west of the New Mexico state line. After exiting Hwy. 70 to the west and crossing the railroad track, you will have to cross a wide, deep wash that may be washed out during the rainy season. The cemetery is visible from the highway.
