It is most likely that this John Gale is the one who married Susanna PICK and continued the family line.
The name John Gale is quite rare in Leicestershire at this time.

John and Susanna's marriage 20 Oct 1763 at Oadby, Leicester (ref IGI). "John Gale and Susanna Pick both of this Parish were married in this Church by Banns October 20 in the year 1763 by I [Isaac] Liptrott Minister. This Marriage solemnized between us John Gale X the Mark of Susanna Gale in the presence of Samuel Pick, John Hames" (ref fmp Leicestershire Marriages image). [John Hames signed many other certificates; Samuel Pick was most likely Susanna's brother.]

Susanna's baptism has not been found in Leicestershire, but the record keeping has gaps at Oadby. Samuel Pick had married on 12 Jul 1761 at Oadby to Deborah Simpkin, and they had a baby Samuel baptised 5 Dec 1762 at Oadby (ref Ancestry England Select Births & Christenings). Samuel Pick was the Clerk at Oadby in 1768 (ref fmp).

Burial of John Gale 27 Mar 1795 at Oadby (ref fmp Leicestershire Burials).
Burial of Susanna 20 Dec 1807 at Oadby; "Dec 20 Susanna Gale widow" (ref fmp Leicestershire Burials image).
