Yes Bill, my grandfather was Jesse Gilbert Quail and as I recall from what he told me, as a boy he lived in rockford Illinois.His Father was an Artist, sign painter to be exact. Rented a small shack which used to be a bycicle club headquarters for his workshop. When they moved to Detroit he opened the Quail Sign Co that was on Woodward avenue,just a few buildings off of the detroit river. I have an original Card from that business. My uncle, David who lived in California was also an artist. So how are you related to my grandfather?
I have some genealogy info put away that my Grandfather left to me before he died and I will go through it this week and see what I can figuire out. Pretty exciting.
I have my Great Great Grandfathers Black powder rifle hanging on our fireplace and also a curved hunting Horn made from some animals horn, that is from my great Great grandmother, she brought it from Ireland,has the initials "S.J." for Sarah Johnston on a brass placque.
This is all very exciting because I just typed in My name,John Quail on a search engine the other day just to see what I would get and ended up on the genealogy .com message board..wow
