Hi Janis Smith,
Wow, First of all..... Hi, My name is David Galyean. I wanted to express how shocked I am after reading your message about your Galyean relatives possibly living in Orting, Wa area.
Guess what.... I live in Oakville, Washington on the farmstead in which isn't far from where you are residing in (Chehalis, Washington).
Two of my sister also reside in your hometown, too! That's other small world :)
Funny thing was.... back in 1979, I thought We (my families) WERE the ONLY ONE that carries that surname, But the year has spanned through and begun to see and see more of Galyean families over there and over there and relaized that We weren' the only one ha ha :)
All of my Galyean's ancestor camed from Knoxville, Tennessee to Washington State in 1911 and all of them rested at Whiteside Cemetary in Montesano area, fyi.
I am currently awaiting to get a hardcopy of a death certificate on a guy in his late 40's named Joesph Galyean because my dad spotted his name in Aberdeen's Daily World Newspaper around May of 1999.
I shortafter learned that Joesph Galyean was last living in auburn, wa after running into some of Galyean's SSDI database, Interesting! Isn't it?
Once again, I am so DELIGHTED to be looking forward to be HEARING BACK from you, Janis Smith anytime!!!!!!! since I only live approximately 25 mile west of Centralia area :)
