Wm Dudley Gale, m. "Kate" Polk 1858, Tennessee
I am trying to sort out the Gale, Gayle, and Gailey families of Tennessee. I have read that William Dudley Gale, who married “Kate” Polk in 1858, was a grandson of Josiah Gayle and Sarah Conduit, through their son, Thomas. Is this a “well established” relationship? Other sons of Josiah Gayle and Sarah Conduit were James, Robert, John, and Josiah. I assume Thomas was the youngest. Is there any chance thatThomas, thefather of William Dudley, was NOT Thomas, the son of Josiah Gayle and Sarah Conduit?
