Thank you for responding to my email.I have made quite a bit of headway since this posting.However, do you know what your Grandfather's father's name was?Felix was a more common name than I would have thought.Here is what I have developed myself and with the aid of a James Gallogly.His name was forwarded on to me with a letter detailing his information.I have not contacted him directly yet as I only received the letter myself a couple of weeks ago. He said that there was a Felix Gallogly who married a woman named Mary Prior.Then they had 2 sons John and Felx.Felix then married an Ellen Reilley.They had a son named Felix and 7 other children.I actually have communicated with one of their children's grandchildren - Catherine.I am wondering if your side is from John.Here is some info for you.
Felix Gallogly married Eileen Reilly (I believe it is supposed to be Ellen) on 08-Feb-1869. Felix's residence was recorded as Derinave.
We found the following marriage recorded in Carrigallen Civil district.
Phelix Galogly married Ellen Reilly on 08-Feb-1869. Phelix was full age a bachelor farmer from Drumshambo North townland his fathers name was not recorded. UPDATE - I recently received information from a James Gallogly who indicates that Felix's father was also a Felix who married a woman named Mary Prior. They had another son John who married a woman named Short from Greagh Cross. His research indicates that the Gallogly's came from Ulster in the late 1790s.
Ellen Reilly was full age a spinster from Drumshambo North townland and her father was Pat Reilly a farmer. Patt Galogly and Catherine Mc Manus witnessed this marriage which took place in Carrigallen Roman Catholic Church.
