Elisha Lloyd GALLUP

Elisha has two gravestones. One was provided by the military and one is for he and his wife (whose name is on the gravestone but as she is still living, Brian correctly removed her name in the photograph) He is buried at the beginning of Row #6 in the Gallup Cemetery. Having two gravestones is not as unusual as you might think. Many people have their name and birth date on a family stone, and then enter the service and it is up to the family to finish the ending date and enter any wives or children.

Elisha was the President of the Gallup Family Association from 1981-1990) As you can see by the military gravestone, he served in the Vietnam War. The current Gallup Genealogy tells us that he served from 1965 to 1966.

Tombstone Tuesday: Lydia GALLUP

Lydia GALLUP

Lydia GALLUP, sister to Moses Wadham GALLUP, was the daughter of Dwight GALLUP and his wife Lydia Ann WADHAMS. She was born on 5 June 1860 and died 27 Dec 1948.

In 1930 and in 1940, she is living, as cousin, in Hartford, CT, Notice that her gravestone has the same Ivy motif as her brother.

Lydia is listed as Lille in the 1880 census. That is probably because her mother and she had the same first name. At that time, her father Dwight is living next door to his father Lodowick and the family may have been sharing farmland.

The 1900 census lists her occupation as music teacher. 

Lydia was single when she died.

Cecelia GALLUP, wife of Giles WILLIAMS

Cecelia GALLUP, daughter of Lodowick GALLUP and his wife Margaret "Peggy" PHELPS, was married to Giles WILLIAMS as his second wife. Giles WILLIAMS was first married to Cecelia GALLUP's sister Fanny Maria GALLUP.

Giles WILLIAMS married Fanny Maria GALLUP on 13 Sept 1833 and she died on 16 Apr 1863 of diptheria in Worcester, MA.

He then married Cecelia on 6 Dec 1864 in Worcester, MA. It is important to point out that his second wife was the older sister of his first wife. The 1850 census for Giles and Fanny Maria shows that they live in Worcester, MA. Both were born in Connecticut.

The Gallup (2009) Genealogy, Giles and Fanny Maria have 9 children listed and they must be some living descendants of this couple.

Giles and his first wife are buried in South Cemetery, Pomfret, Windham, CT.  He died in 1869. Their graves can be seen on Find a Grave.  Two children are also buried there.

Ceceila GALLUP WILLIAMS died on 28 Jan 1892.

Cecelia GALLUP and Giles WILLIAMS had no children so that is why she is buried in the Gallup Cemetery without a husband.

Louisa GALLUP

Louisa was the daughter of Lodowick GALLUP and his wife Margaret "Peggy" PHELPS. She was born 21 Jan 1807 in Groton, New London, CT

Louisa never married and in 1870 the census tells us she was living with two of her sisters. 

 In 1880, the three women are living with their brother Lodowick Corbin Gallup and he is head of household. Since there is no 1890 census, it is not known where she lived just before she died.


Lucy died on 5 Mar 1891 and is buried in the Gallup Cemetery #10.

 (Transcript from Hale Survey) Gallup, L. Corbin, died Aug. 16, 1882, age 73

Lodowick Corbin GALLUP

L. Corbin Gallup was the fifth child born to Lodowick and Margaret Gallup. It would be interesting to know why they waited to name this son Lodowick after having a son previously. I don't think he used this first name. Born 11 Feb 1809 and died 16 August 1882, his gravestone is very simple. He was 73 when he died. No wife is buried beside him.

He married Nancy WHITE in Brooklyn, CT on 22 September 1834. She is listed in the Barbour Index as living in Pomfret, CT at the time of their marriage. He is #1412 page 192 and page 338 of the current Gallup (2009) genealogy. 

The couple had 5 sons: Nelson (1835-1893), Edward Payson (1836-1841), William Henry (1841-1841) , Henry Carlton (1842-1921) and Benjamin White (1845-1905)  all with the surname GALLUP. Only two of these sons are followed down by the Gallup genealogy.  Wife Nancy was born on 21 June 1805 and died 5 Jan 1881 according to the Gallup (2009) Genealogy.

All five children were born in Macedon, Wayne, NY and the family is listed there in the 1840 census. The 1850 census lists him as a farmer with a another farmer named Peleg Palmer of Rhode Island in the same household.

In 1860, his wife is living apart from her husband with the youngest son. She may have been under stress with two of her sons dying a day apart in August of 1841 and her third son married in 1865.

In the 1870 census, he is living in Goshen, Litchfield CT in the household of his nephew as a farm laborer.

By the 1880 census, L. Corbin is a widower (but he is not) and is living back in Ledyard, CT, with family so I had to track down the youngest son and figure out where she and the youngest son went. They moved to Rhode Island.

By the 1880 census, she is listed as feeble. She is also listed as widowed and she is not. She died in 1881. Her son may not have known his father was still living.

Nancy White Gallup is buried (probably near her son) in the North Burial Ground in Providence, RI At least I found her!
