I am reaching out in hopes of solving the mystery of my grandfather, Edward Gail Quinn, as I am genetically closely related to many “Quinas” on the ancestry website.

My grandfather, Edward Gale Quinn, claimed he was born on June 11, 1884 in Pensacola, Florida. He left (or fled) Florida around 1930 and ended up in El Centro, California. He married and had one daughter with Lola Alma Peebles in 1933. He died on October 26, 1962, in El Centro, California, at the age of 78, and was buried there. Census information also shows a year of birth as 1888. Unfortunately, there are no birth certificates or documents prior to 1930. My thought is that he could have been an illegitimate son of one of the Quina’s. The fact that he was another “Edward Gale” just seems more than just a coincidence.

Anyway, my DNA clearly shows that the Pensacola “Quina’s” are my second, third, and fourth cousins. I’ve contacted many of these Quina’s, but as yet have been unable to confirm the parents of my grandfather, Ed Quinn.

Any information, rumors or stories would be appreciated from wiki members. Thanks!
