A lot of research on the Gately family of South Roscommon was carried out over the years by John J. Gately (passed away 1988). The family history was traced back, through several centuries, by examining all the gravestones in Cam and Dysart cemetries (both of which are in South Roscommon), in addition to studying records from Irish libraries and the British Library. John James's gravestone in Cam cemetry, contains inscriptions which give a 'pocket' history of the family: they resided mainly in the small areas of Castletown, Coolagarry, Curry and Dysart (all of which are close together in South Roscommon). Gately families still live in all these areas.
