Okay....I am starting to get a little less confused. In England it was spelled at least 3 different ways, Gazley, Gazeley, Gazely & I think there was also Gasely. Now on our side from what we have found out, there were 3 generations of Alfred John Gazley-they were very original when naming their children. I called my mom last night before e-mailing you so that I could get a little of the info to give you. I don't know what it has been like for you to find out about this through your family, but my grandfather, bless his soul, is not very forthcoming with any information. I did find out that there is a town named Gazeley in Suffolk, England & there is a church there named Gazeley. In Smithville in Texas, there was a town named Gazley as well as a Cemetary called The Gazley's. Odd thing, no Gazley's are buried there? There was a Thomas J. Gazley that signed the Declaration of Independence for Texas in 1836. I have soooo much more. I am sure that what we have found out will be useful to you & what you know will be useful to us. By the way, Happy New Year!!
Fran
