States: Pennsylvania: Westmoreland
I am seeking any information on my great-grandfather, Andrew J. Gallagher. He was born Sept 27, 1830, in Pennsylvania. Married Sarah Ann Bowman. Children were: Mary Adda, Elizabeth Nancy (Kuhns), Margaret Catherine, Nettie (Magreary), Carrie (Kaney), William Franklin, Charles J., and my grandfather, James Howard. The parentheses after the children's names are their married names.
Andrew died in May 1904. Sarah died in January 1910 from a fall down the cellar stairs at her sister's home. They are both buried at the old St. James Lutheran Church cemetery in Bell Township.
I am trying to research the family back to Ireland, but have reahed a dead end with Andrew. I can't find any information on him prior to March 1865, when he joined the 103rd Pennsylvania. Any information that anybody might have about him would really be welcome.
