Debra,I am responding to a posting of yours from back in Dec 04 ref: Gately family. One of my Cornelius ancestors, Madison Cornelius, b.in the early 1800's in S.C., married America Gately. A relative of mine told me a number of years ago that a Cornelius had married a Cherokee Indian named Gately. He also told me that they had moved from S.C. to Rome,Ga., then on to Oneota, Al. Do you happen to have any information on America Gately in your family records? I was also told that the name Gately is found amoung the Cherokee Indians in Cherokee,N.C. I would appreciate any info that you might have. thanks, John Cornelius

Debra, I am responding to your post of 2004 on Gately of N. Caro. and Tenn. Though Gately is not my direct line, I have some information on them. John Gately's wife, Jemima (Mime) Mercer, I believe (with no strong proof) is the sister of my John Mercer who was married to Lucretia Johnston and they both died in Caldwell Co., Ky. While doing research on the Mercer line I ran across an article in a No. Carolina newspaper that recounts the trial of James Mercer, Jemima's father, when he was tried for killing his son in law, John Gately. It's fascinating and if you don't have it, I'd be happy to share a copy with you. You can email me directly at MarthaClark@stx.rr.com. Let me know. Martha

Deb, After my last post, I seem to remember corresponding with you in the past about the article. If so, I apologize. I haven't done research in about six years and so have forgotten a lot of stuff. :-)

Hi Martha,
I also am just renewing my research into this family line after putting it aside for some time.
Do you still have the newspaper report on the trial? If so, I'd love a copy. this week will be really busy at the ranch (I'm down in Mexico at present) but I'll try to pull my files and refresh my memory on this line. Let me know if you need any further infor. I can help you with.
regards,
Debra

Debra, i'll be happy to send you a copy. I think I have your address, but just in case could you email it to me.

marthaclark@stx.rr.com

I'll have to pull my files also, so it may take me a few days.
