My paternal grandmother was Honora (known as Nora)Agnes Galvin. She was born Sept. 25, 1873 in Listowel, Co. Kerry; father John (?) Galvin, mother: Julia (Stack) Galvin. She emigrated to Washington, D.C. in the 1890s, married Michael Gallagher (a fireman), July 15, 1903; my father, James Joseph Gallagher was born May 3, 1904; a second child was Kathryn Rose (Gallagher) Whelan, b. July, 1909; d. Feb. 1971. Any information about the Galvins or Stacks in Listowel would be most welcome. I remember from a cousin that one young man named Galvin was a priest in the Kerry area. I have a school notebook that Nora kept, with maps of Ireland drawn in colored pencil, and notes for her grammar school classes, presumably from the early 1880s. She was one of 12 children.
