He had older brothers James and John, he also had a younger brother Phil, who, last heard of lived in the midlands in England.

Hello from America! I am researching my paternal great-grandparents: John Gallagher, b. 1860 married Isabella Gray, b. 1870. John worked for a wealthy Donegal landowner as manager of his horse stables. I am sure there is an official title for this position, but I don't know what that is. John and Isabella had two children, John Peter Gallagher, born 9 April 1886 in Milford and Elizabeth, born in 1890. John and Isabella then emigrated to Philadelphia in 1891. John Peter Gallagher married Julia Mary McPaul in NYC in 1906. Julia was also born in Donegal, and I have found via other ancestry sites that most McPauls lived in Cratlagh, just northwest of Milford. John Peter and Julia are my great-grandparents. Julia's parents were Patrick McPaul and Elizabeth (Lizzie) Bradley. Patrick, Lizzie and Julia emigrated to Philadelphia in 1891 also. If any of this sounds familiar or of interest, I would love to hear from you. Kind thanks in advance.
