RESEARCHER, LYLE THOMAS: Nancy
Thomas and James Gallaher, the children spelled their last name Gollaher. She
also says that James and Nancy were married in 1858. Well Nancy, is in the
William Thomas house hold in the 1860 census. I have Nancy and James on the 1870
census in Mckee Twp. Their oldest boy, Samuel is five years old. I have most of
the Gallaher's on census records in Adams County, Illinois from 1850 - 1920. I think all
of them came from TN. They say Samuel and James Gallaher were brothers but I
have never seen them together on a census record. If not brothers they were at
least cousins. But I'm not going to dwell on that. James Gallaher was born 1838
in Monroe County, Tennessee and died 17 Oct. 1909 in Illinois Soldiers & Sailor Home,
