(Transcript from Hale Survey) Gallup, Huldah, wife of Nehemiah M. died Nov. 6, 1834, age 42

Hulda Wheeler was the daughter of Lester Wheeler and Eunice Bailey. She was born 2 April 1791 in Stonington, CT and married Nehemiah Mason Gallup, II on 26 April 1812 also in Stonington. As you can see by this repaired stone, she died on 6 Nov 1834 and buried in the Gallup Cemetery in Ledyard, CT.

Hulda died giving birth to her son Henry C. Gallup. She was 42 and the May previously her daughter Phebe E. Gallup died at the age of 18. She had already lost little Mason in 1830.

But, Henry C. Gallup lived and he married and died in London, England.

Hulda was the mother of a dozen children. That's a lot of childbirth to die at age 42. Her husband never married again.
