Albert Gallatin (given name)

Classification: Query
Surnames: Waldrop, Gallatin
It's interesting how often we see an unusual name, assume the original holder must have been an ancestor, and then discover that he (it's usualy a he) was someone famous, and that many sons in many different families were named for him.

For instance, in one of my collateral lines there was an Albert Gallatin Waldrop. I just discovered from a TV program about the Atlantic Inland Waterway that the original Albert Gallatin was a Secretary of the Treasury from 1801-1814, and was an early proponent of the system of canals that eventually made the Waterway possible. Nothing to do with the Waldrops at all!
