It's good to see that GALLUP & CROSS are in the same families, so to speak. I have traced my Eliza's husband to be Francis GALLUP, born 1824 in Norwalk, Huron Co., Ohio, & died 18 Aug 1891, Denver, Denver Co., Co.
The GALLUP you mention here is born in 1843 in Vt, & died 1925 Vt. However, your Francis Darwin GALLUP did in fact have 2 mother in laws...Elza CROSS GIDDINGS....and Delinda CROSS DRAPER. I'm sure there is a connection here somewhere I just don't see it yet. Am I missing something?
I heard from the Denver Co Probate Ct this week & think they are sending me Eliza C GALLUP's probated will. Maybe this will hold the clue.
Thanks for sharing this info. It's yet another avenue for me to travel.
