This Thomas Quayle in Stockton was buried April 19, 1899 at the age of 55. One way to check him out to see if this is your fellow (though off by a couple years) is emailmain Stockton library (Cesar Chevez) reference desk and ask for his obit. Also ask for the obit ofKatie Quayle buried June 19, 1895 at age 39. Or, ask the San Joaquin Genealogical Society website for research help in regards to obtaining the obits for you; they have a gentleman there that does just that. Maybe in the obits it may give you some important data. Good luck. Don't know where you live but I guess it's not Stockton, CA.
