I have just finished updating my Gerald/Gerould Information.
One branch of this family lived in Montgomery, Alabama. Pearley Gerald and wife, Camilla were planters. Son Aldolphus married Sallie. They may have died fairly young as their three children were living with aunt and uncle ( Fred and Mary Cobb ) in Montgomery 1880.
My husband is descended from Jacques Gerould, a French Huguenot who emigrated to the US in the early 1700's and settled in Medfield, MA. There are branches of the family who kept the Gerould spelling and others who went with Gerald.
Branches of the family can be found in Wrentham, MA; Sturbridge, MA; New Hartford, CT; New York State; Tioga County, PA; Montgomery, AL; Keene, NH and Vermont.
My husband's line is through Jacques' son, Stephen.. his son, Joshua of Sturbridge, MA; his son, Ashahel of New York .. and his son, Guy Covington whom settled in New Hartford, Litchfield Co, CT.Guy's daughter, Frances, married Henry Hodge.
