About Lodowick Gallup

HISTORY OF THE TOWN OF STONINGTON, County of New London, Connecticut, from its first settlement in 1649 to 1900, by Richard Anson Wheeler, New London, CT, 1900, p. 389, 391

Married Margaret Phelps of West Springfield, Massachusetts on February 28, 1799. They were married in Suffield, Connecticut at Captain John Kent's, an uncle of Margaret Phelps.

I have just been given more information by another Gallup descendant, whose ancestor was Lodowick's sister, Mary: http://granite-in-my-blood.blogspot.com/2016/07/lodowick-gallup.html [Hatte Blejer, June 17, 2017]

From the blog: "His wife was Margaret PHELPS and she is buried by his side as it is with most couples of this time period. He died on 18 July 1857 at 84 years and 6 months. In 1855, he wrote a will naming many of his living children by name. He probably was concerned for his property and belongings as his wife Peggy died in 1849 and as seen by the 1850 census, he still had children living with him."

"Like most of the Gallups living in Ledyard and Groton, he was a farmer."
