I'm looking for family information in Ireland re my gg-grandparents, Dennis and Ann Johnson (or Johnston) Gallagher, who lived in Galvery, Co. Fermanaugh. Dennis came to the US when he was very young, worked in Jacksonville, FL and supposedly returned to Ireland "after he made his fortune" and married Ann. Dennis died ca 1875; Ann was alive in 1899. Their son, Francis W. Gallagher, my g-grandfather, born 15 June 1861 in Galvery, and others in the family came to the United States. Francis (Frank) came to LaPorte, Sullivan Co., PA, working first in the tannery at Thorndale, PA. Later he owned and operated a hotel in LaPorte. He married Tressa Brieger, daughter of Charles and Fransica (Frances) Kille Brieger, 12 May 1885 in LaPorte. He died in 1908 at LaPorte. Tressa was born in 1871 in Sullivan Co., NY and died in Binghamton, Broome Co. ,NY in Feb. 1947. Frank and Tressa's daughter, my grandmother, Emma Katherine Gallagher was born 15 July 1889 in LaPorte, married Clarence Walter Frey in ca1907. They had two sons in LaPorte, Donald b. 1907 and Lawrence, my father, b. 1909. Later Clarence and Emma moved to Endicott, Broome Co. NY, had six additional children.
I would like to know more about Dennis and Ann, and their children, in Ireland. Does anyone recognize the town of Galvery?, know the Parish?
