"Galloup, Ernest G., the enterprising and well known merchant of McLean (NY), was born in Farmer, Seneca County (New York), November 23, 1849. He was the son of William and Elizabeth Galloup, and the second of their five children. Ernest learned the druggist's trade in the store of his uncle in Lodi, with whom he worked three years. In 1871, he came to McLean, where he opened a drug store, and in the course of the next five years added teas and coffees and a few groceries, which was followed a few years later by a full line of the latter, together with other merchandise, and for better accommodations moved to his present location in 1880. He also dealt extensively in coal, plaster, and phosphates, but in 1880 discontinued the latter branch and became a general undertaker and funeral director. Mr. Galloup also handles annually thousands of fence posts. He is one of the trustees of McLean M. E. Church, and for ten years has been superintendent of the Sunday School. In 1873, Mr. Galloup married Miss J. J. King, daughter of B. D. King of Moravia, and they had one child, Bera, who died at the age of nine years. Our subject is interested in local and county affairs, and is a strong Republican. He has been delegate to the county conventions and has also served as county committeeman for his town."
