Veterans Buried in the Gallup Hill Cemetery

List of Veterans 

in the Gallup Cemetery #10

 in present day Ledyard, CT

Midge and her DAR Patriot Ancestor, Col. Benadam, Gallup, 2004

For this early Veteran's Day posting, I'd like to show you the valuable resource in the Charles R. Hale Collection of Connecticut Cemetery Inscriptions that are now available at

The listing of each person buried there (as of 1932) is my current focus, but there is also a listing of those who served in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 and the Civil War. There is also a Vietnam vet buried in this private graveyard. I will be blogging about each one as time goes on.

The list so far:

Landsman Christopher W. Gallup, US Navy, Civil War
Capt. Jacob Gallup, War of 1812
Luke Gallup, War of 1812
Andrew Gallup, Artillery, Revolutionary War
Maj.or Col. Benadam Gallup, Revolutionary War
