I have a Wm. and Lucy Gallion with a large family in the 1910 Lauderdale Co., MS census..Wm. is listed as 43 and Lucy as 40 which would make them too young to have married in 1876..however, censi dates are notoriously wrong.

I am not at all sure who this Wm. is. There were no Gallion families in Humphrey Co., TN at any time during the 19th century..or for that matter the 20th. I have guessed that Wm. could be a son to Thomas "Rufus" Jefferson Gallion and his wife Delphina Elizabeth who were in the 1870 Alcorn Co., Miss. census. But that's a guess w/o any corroboration at this time.

Did Wm. have any siblings? A sister Flora? or Lillie? brothers Charlie or Toby?

My grandfather was Thomas Jefferson Galyean b.1887, son of Thomas Jefferson(who died before my gf was born) and Delphia Elizabeth Staton Galyean, and grandson of Samuel b.@ 1812, and Susan Mitchell. He had brothers, William '67,(married Lucy Smith, b. 1870, on May 12, 1886, so the ages you have in the 1910 census would be correct), Staton, Charles, Tobias, Rufus, and sisters Mollie (Benjamin) and Lillie (Weeks). Don't know of a sister Flora, but there was an Emma and two brothers who did not survive childhood. Read @ others looking for Lizzie and/or Lillie Galyean. William and Lucy had daughters by both these names, but I know nothing about them. T.J. and Bettie always lived in MS as far as I know. Their children lived in MS and TX. Have never known of any of them to use the spelling Gallion.
There is an annual Galyean reunion in Sweeny, Texas. Will be happy to furnish info to anyone interested. It was begun more than 20 years ago by the decendents of T. J. and Bettie (Elizabeth).
Hope this information is of interest.

I am married to a descendent of a Tom Galyean married to a Delphia Elizabeth (Betty) last name unknown, that resided in Tennessee at one time. Tom's son, Tobias Crosling married to an Esther Angeline Davis, is my husband's great-grand father. I am a novice of the family tree, but am trying hard to connect things on this side of the family. Any help would be appreciated. I have info. from Tobias down to today.

Sorry I can't help you. My search ended in complete
failure. I found no record of a Galyean Family in the
middle Tennessee Counties that were being researched.
There seems to be a lot of Galyean information on the
Internet. Good Luck in your search

Surnames: Crossling or Crosling
I'm looking for any descendants of the Crossling or Crosling family from the North East of England, namely Sedgfield, County Durham, Sunderland, or even Newcastle upon Tyne. Could Tobias Crossling have originated there? Neither of the surnames are common in England or elsewhere. One particular ancestor, Isaac Crosling, seems to have disappeared from British shores between 1891 and 1991. If you have any information it would help.

Cheers!

Jill (nee Crossling)
