I have wanted to create a family tree blog  but put it off for one reason or another.  After attending the First Gallagher Reunion this weekend, I realized it was time.  Cousins wanted to know the stories, “do we have any famous people in our tree?”, “what about Experience, our Native American ancestor?” and “who will carry the torch in the next generation?”.

This reunion started simply with a cousin from San Diego announcing in Feb her plan to vacation at the Jersey Shore in July and suggesting a First Family Reunion.  I was amazed at how people stepped up and performed the duties necessary to carry out a wonderful weekend for the 4 generations that attended ranging in age from 3 to 84.

Planning will be so much easier for the next reunion and I hope to have all the questions answered about our ancestors.  As for who will carry the torch in the next generation, it is plain to see that there is a line of cousins ready to take it on!

    I am the only child of Crawford E. Cromey (twin son of Hattie B. and Fred). About a year ago I randomly searched my father’s name and voila, the Walling family tree popped up. I am finding it tremendously interesting. It’s obvious that you put tons and tons of hours into putting this family tree together. It’s fun looking at these pictures and finally putting names to faces which have been in our family albums all these years. Thank you for all your effort.
