Our William Quail was from County Down, Northern Ireland. We were there last week and found the house that my wife's family oral history describes as the home that he left. It matches the one in a photograph that her great-uncle, Frank Quail of Cleveland, brought back in 1903.
This William Quail was born in County Down in 1754 and died in Washington, Pa., in 1937. He had a son and a grandson also named William Quail.
