Eliza Bell Gale was the daughter of Teamster, John E. Gale. She married William Daniels on November 21, 1881, in Mason, Washington. Their daughter, Mary C. Daniels was born abt. 1884 and in 1885 they were counted on the census in Mason County. Their son, Percy Henry Daniels, was born on Dec. 5, 1885, in Olympia, and Eliza died two months later on February 13, 1886, at Columbia House in Olympia. Her funeral was also held there and she was laid to rest in the Masonic Cemetery (Masonic Memorial Park) in Tumwater, Thurston County, Washington. 

Note: There was another Eliza Daniels who died on January 2, 1940 in Seattle, Washington. Her death certificate states that she was born in England on July 17, 1860, and her parents were John Waldon and Suzanna Williams. This is not the same Eliza Bell Gale who married William Daniels of Olympia. Evidence has been found, proving that Eliza (Gale) Daniels died two months after her son, Percy, was born, in February of 1886 in Olympia.


Eliza Bell Gale & William Daniels were the parents of my ancestor,
