Using 4.4.4 on a stock Nexus 5.

Starting yesterday, when I receive an email to my personal email address, I get two notifications -- one from the Email app, and one from GMail.
I had no idea that GMail was receiving my personal email and I don't want it to.

As well, I no longer see my GMail in my gmail app.

In Settings | Sync, I see only my personal email address (tho' not the gmail address). Sync is OFF.

How can I correct this so that GMail is associated (only) with my gmail.com address, and not my personal address?

Thanks,

Open GMail (the app). Look in Accounts. Delete your personal account. (I think - I uninstalled the GMail app a long time ago. I prefer Email for all my accounts.)
