Hi Melissa, Actually, I am not blood-related to the Gallahans. My father was Wilman P. Keys and his first wife, NELLIE (NOT NeTTie) Elizabeth Gallahan, was not my mother. Nellie Died in 1926 of tuberculosis. My father remarried in 1930, to my mother, and I was born of that marriage, along with some brothers. I have been very interested in finding out more about the Gallahans because my father and Nellie Gallahan had a daughter (my half-sister) who had a son and daughter whom I grew up with and they want to know more about their Gallahan side of the family. To give a little bit of background for Nellie I post the following: Nellie was born March 1885 in Prince William County, VA. She was the second child born to Benjamin Franklin Gallahan and Molly/Mollie Horton. Their other children were in order:
Pearl Douglas Gallahan, b. 1883
French Gallahan, b. 1887
Raymond Gallahan, b. 1888
Madin/Madie Lee Gallahan, b. 1893
Esther Gallahan, b. abt. 1895
Elsie "Dot" Gallahan, b. 1897
Lillian Virginia Estelle Gallahan, b. 1899

Do you still think this is the same family? My niece and nephew would be tickled pink if they could find some family still living. They never knew their grandmother, what with her having died before they were born. My father and Nellie Gallahan had four children, and my half-sister (she died in 1990) was the only one lived to adulthood. Every time I go to Manassas, I keep looking for more information on the Gallahans and I also keep hoping to find Nellie's burial site. So far, no luck on that. Hope some of this rings more bells with you. I have found some Gallahans as late as the 1930 U.S. Census, but nothing much more than that.
