My great grandfather was Thomas Charles Wasley who married Catherine Eva from Liverpool, England. Thomas had a brother, John. Thomas and his brother John were from Wales. (My greatgrandfather was Thomas and yours was John?)
Thomas Charles and Catherine Eva had 4 children: Howard Edmund Wasley, Thomas Charles, Frank, and Julie.
My grandfather was Howard Edmund Wasley who married Mary Ann Burns, (she was b. in Fresington, England). I don't know where they met or were married. Their children were: Dorothy Kathleen, Frances Marie, and Howard Edmund Wasley, Jr. (my father).
My father was born in Pocatello, Idaho. He moved with his father and sisters to Bellingham, Washinton approx 1924, to work in the Golden Rule Department Store.
He married Katherine Haynes in Bellingham. There were 4 Wasley children: Michael Howard(who lives in Bellingham, Wa), Thomas Haynes(Died in 1940), (me)Mary Katherine (M. William Reed and lives in Alamo, Ca), and Patricia Anne Wasley(Lives in Seattle).
I have Catherine Eva's obituary which says, "... she was born in Devonshire, England, 1855. When 7 yrs old, she crossed the Atlantic and settled in Dover, NJ. She married Thomas Wasley on May 6, 1871. They journeyed to Ontario, Canada, Albany, New York, Belmont, Nevada, then to Park City, Utah, where Mr. Wasley worked in the mines. He drove overland with a group and bought a homestead, 320 acres, in Blackfoot, Idaho. Mrs. Wasley and her small children came later by train. He died 9 yrs later. She sold the farm and moved to Pocatello to keep house and care for her son, Howard Edmund's small children, (Dorothy, Marie, and Howard, Jr.) (Their mother died.) After ten yrs, she moved to Idaho Falls and lived with her daughter, Julia. She died of a stroke in 1934."
Thomas Charles Wasley, son of Catherine & Thomas, lived in Boise Idaho. He had two children: Richard and Margaret, (twins).I think Richard lives in New York.
My brother Michael Howard Wasley has 5 grown children. The boys are Thomas Howard Wasley, Peter Francis Wasley. The girls are Rita, Nancy and Jane.All live in Bellingham except Rita Remington, who lives in Ketchum, Idaho.
My Wasley-Reed children, Matthew, Megan, and Michael spent their childhood summers in Bellinham, on the beach, with all their Wasley cousins.
My sister, Patricia Wasley, is dean of the school of education at the Univ of Washinton.
I knews some Wasley's in Danvile, I think Barara and John?. John's family was from Grassvalley and traced their roots to John Wasley from Wales.
