I'm in the process of starting a family tree from my maternal side of the family.This is all new to me. However, I was given some names from my mother and grandmother in which i did some searching in the death index from the names my Grandmother who has family ties to the Gallaher family in Roane Count Tn area.
As i began searching i came across your email, and thought to myself perhaps this could be a good way for me to start out finding my ancestors giving the fact the it was to coincidental that she Lucinda Gallaher was also, near the Roane County, TN. Area. Either way for me it's worth a try.
If any of the names i give you mentioned below match any of your family ties.I would be more than happy to exchange what i have for what you have.I have the names,birthdates and deaths of some of the relatives related to my grandmother with the last name Gallaher.Please compare.Here are the names listed below:
Frank Gallaher Born (Oct 22, 1896) Died May 1977 in Roane County, TN.
Sam Gallaher Born ( Jan 21, 1907) Died April 2002
Ernest Gallaher Born April 14, 1903) Died 1985 married Katie Gallaher (Born Dec 14, 1907)who died Jan 1987.In which they are my grandmother Ruthie Gallaher Matlock-Hughes parents.
Herschell Gallaher (Born Feb 4, 1904) Died in 1969 Hubie Gallaher (Born Dec 12, 1912)
There were also a Dave & Bill Gallaher, but no dates of birth nor death.And, also my grandmother Ruthie mentioned to me that the name Gallaher dates back to or around the 1700's to abt 1801. In which the Gallahers Great-Grandfather was named Jason Shoats.He was married to a Melinda Presley Shoats.
Please let me know if any of these names matches your family tree.If so, maybe you can send me what you have and i can relay that information to my grandmother in hopes that something does ring a bell.
Thank you so much for your time and effort. I Look forward to hearing from you.
