Information About John Westley Gourley - 1876 to 1963 -Mo
Posted by: Steven Weick (ID *****8368) Date: May 13, 2004 at 10:11:07

I am looking for information about my great-grandfather John Westley Gourley. He was born January 1876 and Died in 1963 in Mountain Grove, Mo.

He was married to Martha J. Green in Mountain Grove, Mo (date unknown). She died in 1952.

He had 8 children that I know of:
Betty Gourley
Ellen Gourley
Lavetra Gourley
Lillian Gourley
Thelma Gourley
Ellis E. Gourley (B. July 26, 1904 - D. October 07, 1995 in Independence, Missouri)
Hugh Gourley (B. August 08, 1906 - D. November 1965)
Clarence H. Gourley (My grandfather)(B. October 16, 1908 in Mt. Grove - D. October 1972 in Valley Falls, Kansas)

I never knew my Grandfather or Great-Grandfather because my grandmother was divorced in the early 1930s and my mother never talked about her dad much. I have one picture of Clarence (my grandfather) and it is of him during WWII in uniform in Europe.

John Westley Gourley's mother was Lizzie (Eilasat) Gourley and was born September 1849 in Mo.

I have a picture of the headstone of John Westley and that is about all.

Any information would be useful. I know I have cousins out there but the big question is Where!

Hope to hear from someone!
