Very interested in your post about Nicholas Gallienne. I am
descended from Nicholas Gallienne [1803-1878] who was born in
Torteval and came to the U.S. with his wife Judith (Sarre) and
several children around 1850; he died in Winona, Minn. Last
paragraph sounds like my ancester, as I know he stopped in Albany,
N.Y. on route west. One of his sons, Henry, stayed on in Albany, and
I am descended from Henry. I have more info if anyone is interested!
