Kewley Family Genealogy Forum
I have no idea how we are related....I understand that you will be staying at the cottage. I gave the owner all of the info that I have. I understand that my great grandmother sold the property (Gretch Lea) in the late 1940's or early 50's...she didn't even know she owned it until tracked down by the historical society and the person who wanted to buy it. All I know is that her father was James Kewley and had left the island and moved to England...my greatgrandma was born in England in 1863 (Whitehall I believe..near Scotland?). She came to the U.S. with her mother in 1880's. James came earlier and was quite the man of adventure (Pony Express, Gold Rush, etc) Any info that you have would help...I don't know who she used to visit at the cottage in the summers....you mentioned half brothers...we thought maybe that James's father lost his wife and remarried..any ideas? I don't even know James's fathers name. I have not had time lately to research so if you can help in any way...we are all related somehow though so it is nice to meet you! Regards, Bridget
