Am presently researching Wiliam B. Quail's parents. I have as tradition that his father was George S. Queal, that a dispute arose between George, his brothers and their father and that the dons changed their names. However I have not yet found documentation for that. Also George S. Queal's father supposedly was a Quayle. Another source states that some Quayle names were changed to Quail and Quaile at Ellis Island. The 'e' was added to our name during the 1920's by my grandmother, Elizabeth Thornton. Am having problems connecting Quail-Queal-Quayle. There are George Quayles, however. Any suggestions are appreciated.
