(Transcript from Hale Survey) Gallup, Josiah, died Jan 29, 1826, age 65


Josiah was the son of Benadam Gallup and Hannah Avery (Benadam, Benadam, John, John) and was born 29 Jan 1761 in Groton, New London, MA [Gallup (2009) Genealogy, p. 92, 180.] He died at age 65 on 29 Jan 1826.

Josiah lost 4 siblings to typhoid fever. Those children are buried here in the Gallup graveyard. Brian Zoldak photographed them all.

Before he did,  I sat on the ground at a Gallup reunion and still couldn't read them completely. 

Josiah married first Sarah FISH and secondly Polly (Mary RANDALL). page 180-181 lists him with his family. 

Josiah's children were all from his second wife Mary (Polly) Randall. 

Josiah is mentioned in his late father's probate packet which I have just found at Ancestry.com. He was the executor of the estate.
