Lauriston GALLUP, MD

Lauriston Gallup was born on 15 Nov 1816, as the eighth child in his family. His parentswere Lodowick and Margaret (Phelps) GALLUP. 

When he died, he was a resident of New York City after graduating from Castleton Medical College in December of 1843. Castleton Medical College is in Vermont.

Frederick Clayton Waite wrote a book titled, The First Medical College in Vermont and Dr. Gallup is listed in it as a graduate on page 211. (I don't think his place of birth listed is correct.)

Boston Medical and Surgical Journal lists his graduation:

He practised medicine in  Oran,New York from 1843 until his death on 28 August, 1848. He was unmarried at the time of his death. He was 31 years old. I do believe he is buried in the Gallup Cemetery and this stone marks his burial but whether he died in New York or in Connecticut is unknown.
