(Transcript from Hale Survey)
Gallup, Mary, wife of Luke, died Mar. 26, 1870, age 62 yrs. 1 mo. 9 da.
Mary, whose surname might be Wells or could have been married first to a man named Wells is not clearly identified in the Gallup (2009) Genealogy.

She is the last wife of Luke Gallup and is buried next to him as she outlived him. Her stone is typical of the 1860s and 1870s with the rounded top, basic information and clear epitaph.  (Brian's photo of stone at Flickr

Mary's birthdate (calculated from her gravestone and the transcription in the Hale cemetery Record) is 17 Feb 1808. She married Luke Gallup on 7 Apr 1850 by the Rev. Timothy Tuttle. Her admission to the church says she was admitted from the church in Greenville (RI?) on 1 Jan 1843 with the surname of Wells.

Mary and Luke had no children, but his daughter Bridget from his first marriage was living with them in the 1860 census. Bridget married in 1865.

Mary Gallup is buried in the Gallup Cemetery in Ledyard CT after passing away on 26 Mar 1870 at the age of 62 years, 1 month and 9 days. The Federal Mortality Schedule says she died of cancer.
