Obit says Mary McDermott was born in Tauton, Massachusetts. December 21, 1862, and came west with her parents when but a young girl. She came to Sully county and was united in marriage with John Gallagher, of Okobojo, in the early nineties, about ten years after Mr Gallagher had taken a homestead claim in the Okobojo community.
Does this mean that she might of only went to Providence, R.I. or does it mean that she went to South Dakota as a young child and then ended up in Sully Co.? Found photo in my grandmother stuff with a man from Lawrence, MA, so I think she might of been there also.
