The name of the sept, signifies descendant of Gallchobar or Gallagher (about 950 A.D.), who was himself descended from Maolchobha, King of Ireland who reigned from 642-654. The O'Gallaghers claim to be the senior and most loyal family of the Cenéal Conaill (kindred of Conal Ghulban), son of Nial Nóigiallach "of the Nine Hostages," - who was high king at Tara circa 450 AD.
The clan's territory extended over a wide area in the northern baronies of Raphoe and Tirhugh, Co. Donegal. The principle branch of the sept were seated at Ballyneit and Ballynaglack.
1000 About 1,000 A.D. legend has it that King Brian Boru decreed all Irish nobility take surnames. It is written in some accounts that some of the warrior caste of the ÓDomhnaill (O'Donnell) took upon them the surname O'Gallchobhair, or "descendants of Ghallchobar" in honor of their patronymic ancestor. Prior to this time, a person with the name Ghallcobhar did not necessarily have any blood relation to any other person by that name, as names were descriptive of character or status, and not of lineage.

Hugh Deery, “Rambles in Drumholm” in this journal (Donegal Annual) (1948) 1, 101. Aww “The Forgotten Fort” Donegal Democrat, 24/9/1971. Fr. E. Hogan is incorrect (Onamasticon Gordelicum, 41), because this fort at Glasbuaile is close to Ballilntra in Tir Hugh. / 21. Eunan, Vita Columbae, p. 1xii – 1xiii, 398, note r. / 22. See note 17 / 23. BM Add. MS 4797, “Catalogue of the Bishops of Raphoe”, f. 48 regarding the Bishop MacCarmacáin, it says here: “It was he that took Killwarrfine from the McTemployes and gave it to the MacCleries….” The MacTemplemoyes equates with the family of Toimilín O’Gallagher who was established here. (See ARE, 5.a. 1436). Dr. Urr Maguire (History of the Diocese of Raphoe, ii, 336), did not recognise them. When Meanma MacCarmacain was bishop the Gallaghers interfered with him greatly and often. (Gwynn, op.cit, 198-201). / 24. See note 13. / 25. Gwynn, op.cit, 197-209: Fr. Colmcille, OCSO… “Abbey Asseroe”, Fr. John Colgan OFM (editor T. O’Donnell, OFM) p. 122-5. / 26.

It appears that the Four Masters are astray here and that this reference to the death of the bishop concerns the year 1438 above. In 1450 the Bishop of Raphoe was alive and in the full of his health i.e. Lochlann II O’Gallagher (1442-79). Usually the successor of St. Eunan equates with the Bishop of Raphoe. Therefore it is difficult to understand the second reference here to the death of Donncha, the successor. For sure he was not a bishop even though Dr. Urr Maguire (op.cit, I, 93) thought he was. See W.H. Grattan Flood, “The Episcopal Succession of Raphoe from 1200 to 1547, Irish Theological Quarterly, vol xvi, no. 63, July 1921 p.259;Gwynn, op.cit, 197-8; Walsh, Irish Book Lover, xxvii, 3, May 1940 p.196; *Beatha Aodha Ruaigh Ui Dhomnaill.

Brady, The Episcopal Succession in England, Scotland and Ireland (Rome, 1976), i, 305; and the same for the other authorities like: Gams, Eubel, Powicker and Fryde, Handbook of British Chronology, etc. Fr. Paul Walsh (op.cit; 195) says that Donncha is not the right name for the above man but Dónall, as it is in AU for the year 1494 and that Dónall, son of Lochlann I was the man in question here. All the analysts say that this Dónall died in 1527. Therefore who was this Donncha? / 31. See note 30 above.

Ireland, Maryland, Delaware, and Pa. 1701 I noticed that you spelled your last name as Gallaher. Was the name changed or is this just an oversight? I am researching the name Gallaher and have come across several spellings of the name. I am looking for any information on a William Gallaher, Sr. born in Ireland in about 1701. Married "Sarah (?) ". Came to the US in about 1750 to Pennsylvania, Maryland or Delaware area.

1796 History of Butler County Pa. Chapter 17 William KEARNS, a native of Ireland, came to this county from Westmoreland County in 1796, with five others. He was the only one of the six, however, who located within the present limits of this township, the others making settlements on lands now included in Summit and Oakland Townships. KEARNS settled just northeast of the present boundaries of the borough of Butler on the farm now owned by Michael MCKINLEY, and lived there until his death, in 1832. His wife was Anna GOLD. They had seven children, of whom but two are living, viz., James, who resides near the old homestead, and Patton, in Butler Borough.
Jane KEARNS, a sister of William, came here with her brother and took up in her own name and secured by settlers' right 100 acres of land adjoining his -- the farm now owned by George REIBER. She married John POTTS, who came to the township in 1799, and after the laying-out of Butler became a merchant there.
The KEARNS farms are quite historic ground. On the land originally owned by Jane KEARNS is an old burying ground -- probably the oldest in the township. The graves are still to be seen in the thick wood upon the hill, not far west of the road. They are marked with rough headstones which bear no inscriptions.
Upon that part of the James KEARNS farm now owned by Mrs. MCLURE, at the right of the Butler & Millerstown road, is the site of the old salt well, sunk by Thomas COLLINS in 1811 or 1812. Salt was manufactured here for several years, coal being mined near at hand to be used as fuel for boiling down the brine. The quality of the salt was seriously impaired by the presence of petroleum, or, as it was then called, Seneca oil. Meat pickled in it bore the unpalatable taste of the oil, and had to be thrown away. The flow of petroleum in the well was quite small, as it was only seventy feet in depth. Old Mrs. Kearns usually kept a jug or two of the oil in her cupboard, from which many small vials were filled for her neighbors. It was believed to be a sovereign remedy for many of the ills afflicting man and beast, especially cuts and bruises.

Pa 1804 History of Butler County Pa. Chapter 42 ST. PATRICK'S PARISH In June, 1864, a short historical sketch of the Church in Butler county was contributed to the pages of The Catholic, of Pittsburg, by the late Peter DUFFY, a son of one of the leading pioneers of the county and himself a pioneer. In be- [p. 508] ginning his subject he says: "I shall state some facts in relation to an old church and an old congregation in this vicinity, which, if they do not settle the question of its being the first church west of the Alleghenies, may end in the solution of it." Then casting aside the great missionaries of the French Colonial period, he begins with the victory of a man of his own race—Anthony Wayne—over the Indians in 1794, and the crossing of the Allegheny by the pioneers in 1796. In 1801 the Rev. Father LANGAN, the first English speaking priest known to have crossed the Allegheny, held a station on Buffalo creek, in Butler county, within a few miles of where St. Patrick's church now stands. Thither the pious settlers of the wilderness hastened with their children, and there large numbers were baptized in the old faith, and among them was he who lived to write the sketch of the church in 1864. After Father LANGAN had stamped his name on the history of the location, a Father HELBRUN visited the mission, and as he was rector of the older church in Westmoreland county—near where the great monastery now stands—he repeated the visit, and again came among the faithful people on the new frontier.In 1806 Rev. Father WHELAN, who had known some of the pioneers before their removal from former homes, arrived, and meeting his old friends, all joined in the purchase of land on Sugar creek, in Armstrong county, adjoining the line of Butler, and in building a church and residence thereon near the present building dedicated to St. Patrick. In 1810 the first resident priest bade farewell to the congregation. In 1811 Rt. Rev. Dr. EGAN, bishop of Philadelphia, accompanied by Father O'BRIEN, visited the mission and confirmed many. From that date to 1820 Father O'BRIEN, Father MAGUIRE and Father McGIRR visited St. Patrick's at intervals; but the resolution to send. a resident priest there was not carried into effect until 1821, when Rev. Charles FERRY arrived. He made an enumeration of his flock, and found 140 Catholic families in a territory thirty miles square, all of whom claimed to belong to the old congregation of St. Patrick. Reverend P. O'NEILL succeeded Father FERRY in 1826, and he was succeeded by Father P. RAFFERTY, who resided at Freeport. Father KENRICK, later archbishop of St. Louis, visited the church in 1837, and the same year Rev. J. CODY came to Sugar creek as resident pastor. In 1864, when Mr. DUFFY's chronicle closes, he was pastor of the parent parish, and his people the owners of a substantial church building and parochial residence erected under his superintendence.Old St. Patrick's was then the mother church of the ten parishes since created inside the old limit of thirty miles square. At Kittanning, Freeport, Butler, Oakland and Murrinsville, church buildings marked the progress of the Catholic religion, while in Clearfield were two churches and at Brady's Bend two, making ten parishes, each having a resident pastor. In June, 1864 the total Catholic population was placed at about 7,000. Mr. DUFFY's injunction in the matter of the old log church: "Preserve that venerable old church; permit no vandal hand to take a chip or a block from it; place a slab over the door and on it inscribe, 'Erected in 1806 by Rev. Father WHELAN,'" is not yet carried into effect. The resident priests since 1864 are named as follows: Revs. J. B. O'CONNOR, 1864; John O'G. SCANLAN, 1865; James P. TAHANEY, 1866; P. S. HERMAN, 1872; Thomas FITZGERALD, 1872; P. M. DOYLE, 1873; Jeremiah CALLA- [p. 509] HAN, 1876; P. J. QUILTER, 1876; John T. BURNS, 1889, and John O'CALLAHAN, the present pastor, who came in 1889.The following roll shows the heads of families belonging to St. Patrick's congregation, all residents of Butler county in 1803: Patrick BOYLE, Archibald BLACK, Eleanor COYLE, John COYLE, Matthias CYPHER, Mary Ann CYPHER, Michael CARVAN, Peter CROOSIKS, James DENNY, Hugh DUGAN, Michael DUGAN, Thomas DUGAN, Denis DUGAN, Neil DUGAN, Andrew DUGAN, John DURNEIGH or DURNEY, George DOUGHERTY, John DUFFY, John EMPICH, Edward FERRY, John FORQUER, John GILLESPIE, Hugh GILLESPIE, John GALLAGHER, Peter GALLAGHER, Hugh GALLAGHER, Robert HANLEN, William HANLEN, Sr., Moses HANLEN (buried in the old city cemetery at Butler), Robert HARKINS, William HANLEN, Jr., Charles HUNTER, Jacob HARSHMAN, Thomas HAGERTY, Noble HUNTER, Patrick LAFFERTY, John McGINLEY, Patrick McBRIDE, Charles McCUE, Patrick McLAUGHLIN, Neil MURRAY, Daniel McCUE, Hugh McELROY (a friend of Washington), Neil McLAFFERTY, Manus McFADDEN, John McGEE, Dominick O'CULL, Patrick O'FARREN, Connell and Dennis O'DONNELL, Arthur O'DONNELL, Connell ROGERS, Charles SWEENEY, Jeremiah CALLAHAN, Patrick FITZSIMMONS, John O'HARA, David BOYLE, Francis BOYLE, Edward BURNS, James BURNS, Charles DUFFY (who lived on the Donegal-Clearfield Line), Daniel DOUGHERTY, John GREEN, Philip HARTMAN (a soldier of the Revolution), Bernard HAGEN, Bernard McGEE, Hugh McGEE Jr., Edward QUINN, John QUINN, Joseph BLEAKNEY, William COLLINS, John CONLEY, James HAGERTY, Patrick McANALLY, Daniel McDADE, Hugh MURRIN, James MURRIN, William McLAUGHLIN, and, it is said, John SLATOR, a soldier of the Revolution. The great majority of these pioneers resided within the original township of Donegal; but, as its territory was reduced by the establishment of new townships, so was the number of the resident Catholics in Donegal—the two churches of Butler, the three of Oakland, St. John's of Clearfield, St. Mary's of Summit, the church at Millerstown, that at Petrolia and that at Murrinsville, with other churches in adjoining counties,. claiming many of the grand-children of the pioneers.The log church of 1806 stands in the cemetery, below the present building. The logs are dovetailed at each corner and the interstices, between them, are filled with short pieces of oak set in mortar made of clay and straw. The open roof is constructed of rafters made of eight-inch oak trees, each set rudely matched and fastened with a wooden pin, instead of resting against a ridge-pole, as in modern buildings. On these rafters wide boards were nailed and to the boards the shingles are fastened. The gables above the top of the walls are sheathed with narrow oak boards, as often seen now in the pediments of the modern Queen Ann cottage. Within, the walls are heavily plastered with yellow clay, held together with straw. The interior of roof and gables are washed with lime, and the wall, above and in the rear of the little wooden altar, was papered with a small pattern of gilt wall paper, a remnant of which remains. The windows are long rather than high, so as to obviate cutting the logs, four lighting each side. The entrance is wide but low. From the left of this entrance there is a fairly built stairway leading to the floorless gallery. The rude, hewn oak joists of the nave are now exposed, the puncheon floor having long since dis-[p. 510] appeared. The confessional which stood on the right of the altar down to a few years ago, has disappeared, as well as the little vestry which occupied the space on the opposite side. The altar remains, a reminder of the days when the English speaking Catholics first gathered to worship God west of the Allegheny.The church just described was superseded in 1841 by a large building erected under the supervision of Father CODY on the summit of Church Hill. It was burned in 1872. Pending the erection of the present building, mass was celebrated in the old log church.

History of Butler County Pa. Chapter 32 JOHN EMRICK John, son of Andrew and Catharine EMRICK, was born in Butler County, December 26, 1831; he was married to Maria A. Burkhart, daughter of Elijah and Rebecca (RICHARDSON) BURKHART, December the 13, 1855. The ancestors of Mrs. BURKHART came to America with William PENN. Mrs. EMRICK's grandfather, John BURKHART, one of the first settlers of Butler County, was born in Allegheny County in 1762, and his wife in 1764. Elijah BURKHART was born in Butler County in 1803. He was a carpenter by trade, but always followed farming. He was the father of eight children -- Maria A., Hiram F., Elijah J., Rebecca M., Washington F., Sophia C., Baxter C., and Jacob I. Those now living are Maria A., Elijah J. And Sophia C.
Mr. and Mrs. John EMRICK are the parents of eight children: Daniel B., William J., Asa W., Catharine R., Albert F., Barbara A., Samuel M. and Mary L. Mr. EMRICK settled on his present farm in Summit Township in 1861. During the rebellion, he served in the One Hundred and Seventh Pennsylvania Regiment, from the 19th of September, 1864, to the 20th of June, 1865. His conduct was such as to merit honorable mention by letter from Capt. J. A. Tompkins, commander of his company.
The grandparents of John EMRICK, Michael and Elizabeth EMRICK, emigrated from Northumberland County to Butler County, with their family of four sons and two daughters, in 1813. John BURTNER, who had previously settled in this county, went to the eastern part of the State, and brought this family out with wagons. They first located near Saxonburg, and Andrew EMRICK, who is still living, helped to break the first ground and build the first house in Saxonburg. The children of Michael EMRICK were Andrew, John, William and Michael, Elizabeth (JONES) and Catharine (HICKS). Of these, Andrew and William are living, the latter in Kentucky. One daughter survives - Mrs. HICKS, in Illinois.
Andrew EMRICK, since he came to this county at the age of eleven years, has always resided not far from the farm where he first settled with his parents. From the first farm near Saxonburg, the family moved to an adjoining farm, in both instances commencing in the woods, and encountering many of the hardships of pioneers. In 1828, the second farm was sold and another purchased a mile distant from it. This was the homestead until 1851. Andrew then purchased a farm in Summit Township, a mile and a half southeast of Butler, which he sold in 1856 and moved to Penn Township, where he now resides. Mr. EMRICK is a man of the strictest integrity, and a respected and influential citizen. He has served in numerous township offices, and has performed all his duties faithfully and well. He married Catharine BURTNER, who is still living. They had ten children -- Michael, Jefferson Township; Christiana (GALLAGHER), Donegal Township; John, Summit Township; Elizabeth (FAIR), near Millerstown; Barbara (FISHER), Centre Township; William and Catharine, deceased; Maria (FAIR), deceased; Andrew and Daniel, Penn Township.
NOTE: JOHN E.GALLAUGHER. He was born 25 April 1831 in either Mercer County or Armstrong County, PA, but resided most of his life in Butler County. He married CHRISTIANA EMERICK. He served in the Civil War, and died 9 December 1910.

1842 History of Butler County Pa. Chapter 64 St. Alphonsus Catholic Church at Murrinsville, dates its foundation back to 1841. Fully forty-one years prior to that date a small congregation assembled at stated times at the Murrin homestead, east of the present village, to participate in the service of the mass, for, as in 1753, when the French soldiery and carpenters were here, so in 1800 missionary fathers visited the settlements in Butler county. About 1807 Father FERRY came to this neighborhood, and his successors in charge of St. Patrick's church, on Sugar creek, continued the good work until the stone church building was completed in 1841. Father John CODY baptized Sarah McNALLY at Murrinsville, August 13, 1839. Father Hugh P. GALLAGHER appears to have come here in 1842; Father Michael J. MITCHELL, in 1843; Father HOY in 1845; Father Michael CREADON, in 1848; Father MITCHELL, 1850; Father [p. 646] DOYLE, 1854; Father Thomas O'FARRELL attended from New Castle in 1855, and Father John C. FARREN in 1859. Father HUGHES came in November, 1859 and remained one year, when Father Thomas WALSH succeeded him. Early in 1863 Rev. J. C. BIGHAM, (now of St. Bridget's church, Pittsburgh), took charge and remained until the coming of Father KERR, in 1865. Father William A. NOLAN visited the church in July, 1866, then came Father C.V. NEESON, who remained until 1870, when Father HEANEY was appointed. He was succeeded the same year by Father James TAHANEY, and he by Father NEESON in 1872. From 1875 to 1880, Father James F. TOBIN was here. Rev. Hugh CONNERY came in 1880; Rev. Hugh K. BARR in 1881; Rev. Hugh HAGGERTY in 1882; Rev. F.B. BRADY in 1885; Rev. Thomas J. MORRIS in 1889, and Rev. William T. DWYER, the present pastor, in 1892.

1845 History of Butler County Pa. Chapter 59 The Cumberland Presbyterian Church of West Liberty, was organized over half a century ago, and a house of worship built in 1845. That house was erected by the people of various Protestant denominations, as a Union church; but the progress of the Cumberland Presbyterians warranted them in becoming sole owners. John and Jacob COVERT, Jesse CORNELIUS and John WICK, with their wives, were the first members, and met in a barn on John WICK's farm to listen to Rev. A.M. BRYAN or Mr. GALLAGHER preach the gospel. Later, a loghouse, now the property of Nicholas WEITZEL, was built in the village, and there services were held on stormy Sabbaths, it being devoted to school purposes on week days. Among the old members now living are, Mrs. Mary GROSSMAN, Mrs. FISHER, Mrs. Ruth COVERT and James McNEES. The organization is practically dead; but may at any time be revivified by some evangelist of the denomination.

Chapter 48 Lying upon the northern border of the county, its contiguous civil divisions being Venango Township on the east, Cherry Township on the south, Mercer Township on the west, and Venango County on the north, is the township of Marion. Organized in 1854, it was named doubtless, in honor of Gen. Francis MARION, a gallant American officer who distinguished himself in the Carolinas during the war of 1775-83. The general surface is hilly, and drained by Slippery Rock Creek and its branches. The original forests were composed largely of oak, hickory, chestnut and a considerable portion of the township's area is still covered with a heavy growth of these varieties of trees. The residents of Marion are chiefly engaged in agricultural pursuits, the farm products comparing favorably with other sections of the county, while the Shenango & Allegheny Railroad (which was completed in 1876), by crossing the southeast corner of the township, affords quite ample facilities for the shipment of freights, etc., etc. Iron ore, cannel coal, as well as the ordinary quality of bituminous coal, are also found in considerable quantities and at one time, not far remote, an iron furnace* was in blast within the limits of Marion.*James KERR and Robert BRADEN built the "Marion Furnace" about the year 1850, and it was kept in blast for some ten or twelve years, using ore obtained in this and adjoining townships. Its capacity was small, however, and it produced but about three tons of metal per twenty-four hours. Charcoal alone was used for smelting.
