About Pvt. John S Galley, (USA)

Family records say that John Galley was born 12 July 1842, in Tyrone Twp., Fayette Co., PA. The 1850 US Census shows him in the household of Peter Galley, who was a widower, with 9 children. John served in the Civil War (Company L, 6th Pennsylvania Heavy Artillery) and married Mary Philips Blackmore, 24 Oct 1865, according to family records. They lived on a farm in Peters Twp, Washington County, Pa., and had 9 children. These are the known children:

Anna Frances "Fanny" William Blackmore Carl or Clarence Norman Loretta Sarah Beatrice "Bertie" Eva M Nellie May Edna R John Cable

John applied for an invalid's pension on the basis of his Civil War service, on 6 Aug 1900, and received certificate #1.016.030. After his death, Mary applied for a widow's pension, 1 Feb 1902, and received certificate #C2554632. As his gravestone says 1902, that would place his death about January 1902, although family records say 3 Aug 1901.
