John Gallup was born in September 1646 in Boston, Suffolk, Ma. he died on 26 Dec. 1733 in Stonington, New London, Ct.

Extensive research by Winslow S. Gallup was not able to locate John Gallop's gravestone or any record of his place of burial in Stonington, Voluntown, or Plainfield, Ct. It is probable that he is buried in the Whitehall yard in a now unmarked grave. There is also some possibility that he is buried in the Oneco (Voluntown) Cemetery near Plainfield. Ct.

He settled in Stonington on lands granted by the General Court to his father for services in the Indian wars. He participated in King Philip's war and was with his father in the great Swamp fight at Narragansett. he was a renowned Indian interpreter. Represented Stonington in General court 1685,

Shortly before the turn of the eighteenth century, John and his six sons were granted land in the town of Plainfield CT. in the ensuing years, the area was claimed and battled over by many factions, resulting in numerous petitions to the General Corrt for settlement of the claims and counterclaims. The Gallup brothers stood firm and fought determinedly for their claims with resulting bitterness. "Your honored townsman, Judge Gallup reports that his ancestor one of the six brothers concerned in these squabbles was actually driven off into Voluntown as a specially obnoxious land grabber."
