Ellen FARLEY (1830-1899)

Ellen Farley's parents are unknown. The Ledyard vital record from her marriage say she was from North Stonington at the time of her marriage to Ebenezer on 30 Dec 1852 but the North Stonington vital records do not list her parents or any other Farley surnames.

The 1870 Federal Census gives her place of birth as Ireland and the 1880 census gives her parents as being born in Ireland.

Ellen Farley Gallup lived to be 68 years old. Her gravestone says she is "At Rest" with her little children and husband.
