The John J Gallaghers of Winthrop, MA Updated August 19, 2010
About Our Family Research
My grandparents were John J Gallagher born in Boston and Mary E Sullivan Gallagher born in Ireland, both lived at the Washington Chambers, 275 Washington St, Winthrop, MA. My father was born May 14, 1913 and adopted July 2, 1914. His birth name was George Leary, born to Julia Leary, a single woman of parts unknown. He was born at the Lying_in Hospital, now Bringham-Womans, in Boston and given to St Mary's Infant Asylum. His name was changed to John J Gallagher by petition on July 2, 1914. Another name that appeared on the "Agreement for Adoption" , dated January 5, 1914 was Auria E Leary as a witness to Julia Leary's signature, possibly her mother.
