I am looking for information on the following GALLEY family starting with a Thomas Galley & Mary Jane Jordon who came from England/Ireland around 1867 and settled in Illinois, I find Thomas Galley in the 1880 Census for Rock Island, Bowling township Illinois

Thomas Galley, age 39(?) born Ireland
Mary Galley, age 39, born Ire
Thomas Galley (son) age 4 born Illinois
John J. , age 3 born Illinois

I believe their additional children Robert R. Galley, born England 1863 (age 17) at this time and Elizabeth Jane Galley b. 1866 (age 14) were working and living out of the house. Robert on a farm as a hired hand.

I find Robert R. GALLEY in the 1910 census for La Salle County, Illinois.

Robert R. Galley, age 47, born England, Father b. England, Mother B. England, married 21 years, 4 children living
Esther M. Galley, wife, age 44, born Penn. F. born Penn, Mo.Penn.
Ray E. Galley, son, age 19, b. Illinois
Vera M. Galley, age 16, b. Ill
Ralph J. Galley, son, age 14
Hazel M., age 10, b. Illinois

Elizabeth Jane Galley married a Samuel Sumner SWAN on Oct 15, 1884 at the age of 18 in LaSalle County Illinois and listed on her marriage license her father as Thomas GALLEY and her mother as Mary Jane JORDON wittnesses were Robert R. Galley and a Minerva E. SWAN. I know Elizabeth died in 1902 at the age of 35 and left 3 children with Mr. SWAN, and 2 children with a 2nd husband Archibald C. STOCKTON.
I would appreciate any additional information on this GALLEY family. thanks
