Valesca ("Vallie") Adeline Miller Riley Gallaway was born August 30, 1875 in Augusta, Richmond County, Georgia. She was the daughter of John Miller and Elizabeth Englert Miller Riley and the step-daughter of George M. D. Riley. She had one full sister and six younger half-siblings. Vallie was a school teacher who married school teacher and principal William F. Gallaway, Sr., and they had two children, William F. Gallaway, Jr. and Romagna Adeline Gallaway Mackie. Vallie died at age 61 on September 13, 1936 in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia and is buried in Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah. Her ancestry was German. A collection of her letters is at the University of North Carolina library in Chapel Hill. I hope one of her descendents will add her photo to this site.
