Welcome to The James Gammell Chronicles. The purpose of this blog is to provide a gathering place for the living descendants of James Gammell and his siblings, as well as interested friends and historians.
If you are a new visitor, you may want to begin by reading the Preface, posted January 4, 2010, and then proceed chronologically through James' life story.

Family Photos - James Gemmell's children in Montana
Old photos are such a treasure! Here are three taken in Sheridan, Montana. They were published in a book called Pioneer Trails and Trials in 1976 by the Madison County History Association.
I would love to find out if anyone has the originals.
The Orlin Fitzgerald Gammell Family
taken in Montana, c. 1910.
Orlin is James Gammell's firstborn son.
The living children of James Gemmell (c. 1924), those who were living in Sheridan at the time.
George Gemmell, youngest son of James, and his son Billy, c. 1924,
at George's blacksmith shop in Sheridan.
My next post will tell the story of James' move to Montana. (I will then move these photos ahead into other posts.)
Thanks to Bary Gammell for providing these photos.
