George Washington GALLAGHER, son of John Owen Gallagher and Sarah Loretta Lincoln, was born on 17 July 1908 at Hebron, Morton County, ND. The family lived on a farm that is still to this day known as the "John Gallagher" farm. George was the youngest of 7 children. In the early 1920's he moved with his family to St. Paul, MN.

He married Lillian Dorothea IZATT, daughter of James Edward IZATT and Florence Marie JOHNSTON, on 15 October 1927 in Saint Paul, Ramsey County, MN. George worked at Raymer Hardware store and in the roundhouse of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad.

He died on 8 September 1938 in Saint Paul, Ramsey County, MN, at age 30 during emergency surgery. George is buried at Elmhurst Cemetery, Saint Paul, Ramsey County, MN. Lillian could only afford to buy one grave in 1938. She had been widowed for 50 years when she died in 1988 and is buried in another section of Elmhurst Cemetery.

George W. and Lillian's only child was my father, George Edward Gallagher.
