Surname Saturday Gallaher, Gallagher Family


For surname Saturday I am at my 8th name and it is the Gallaher family also found as Gallagher.Both spellings can be found and used among family members. I have very little on this name but now that I am back in Minnesota, I hope to be able to take a trip to La Crosse Wisconsin and spend a few hours there to search for more. My great great grandparents came from Ireland so my search ends with them in the United States
Here is what is known at this time
