Valesci ("Vallie") Adeline Miller Riley Gallaway was born August 30, 1875 in Augusta, Richmond County, Georgia. She was the daughter of John Miller and Eliza 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 Francis Gallaway, Sr., and they had two children, William Francis 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 descendants will add her photo to this site.

Thanks so much to Riley family researchers for so much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions. If a closer relative than I would like to manage this burial site, please let me know.
