Surnames: Gillogly - Manix - Christian
Mr & Mrs Hugh Gillogly Bangor Maine, had 10 kids, my great grandmother was #9-Margaret Etta Gillogly, born 1864, died 1933. Margaret wrote her story a year before her death and at times she tends to ramble, it makes for interesting but difficult reading. Her mother died in 1870-72, her father 1971-73, uses the 1873 date but says she was six years old? She went to live with her grandparents but fails to name them? She mentions her only brother Chris going to live with her Uncle Tom & Aunt Isabelle. She mentions many aunts living in Bangor (no other names) She states Uncle Chris & her Aunt Matilda Gillogly Galen moved to California (no date). Hugh Galen (Matilda's husband?) brought their daughter Nellie back for school @ Notre Dame around 1874. After dropping Nellie off @ school, Hugh went to Washington DC was awarded a stage line contract from Helena to Virginia City. He then went to Bangor picked up Margaret, her sister Rose, brother Chris and cousin Dan, they settled @ "Willow Srings" half way between Bozeman & Helena. Next July (1875?) they moved to Helena. Sept 22, 1879 her sister Rose married Thomas J. Sheehy, they honeymooned in Radersburg? "Etta" met Phil Manix @ a dance, they married July 23, 1882, had 7 kids-Mable, Joseph(JC), John, Matilda, "Rosetta" born Feb 14 1894(my grandmother Rosetta Manix Christian) Ursula and Helen. In 1909 she married JC Furman. Margaret wrote 5 pages full of text for this book, I only picked a few things to enter, mostly names and some dates. Can anyone fill in the blanks? I would love to know the names of Margarets grandparents she lived with in Bangor Maine, don't know if it was on her mothers or fathers side, I assume her fathers?
The info I am taking this from comes out of a book "In The Shadows Of The Rockies" a history of Augusta Montana. Printed 1978 by The Fairfield Times.

Etta Manix went to live with her paternal grandparents James and Ellen Gillogly in Bangor. James and Ellen arrived with their family from Ederny, County Fermanaugh, Ireland in 1847 and landed in St. Johns, New Brunswick. They were in Bangor, Maine by the 1850 Census were you can find the family record. The family is recorded in several census years. A number of the family members are buried in Bangor and there are still living relatives in Bangor. Rose Gillogly and Thomas J. Sheehy are my great grandparents. Etta's parents had a number of other children and Hugh, her father, had a number of siblings. Hugh and Mable's children include Mary Ellen Gillogly McHugh, Matilda Gillogly Cook, Isabelle Gillogly Whitty, Rose Anna Gillogly Sheehy, Sara, James (Chris), and Owen Alfred. Along with Hugh, James and Ellen's children include Matilda Gillogly Galen, Isabella Gillogly Gallagher, Susana Gillogly Dolan, Sarah Gillogly Quinn, and Mary Ann Gillogly Lander.

Good luck with your family history search.

Hi Jim
Thanks for filling in the blank with the names of the paternal grandparents (James and Ellen).
It is asking a lot I know, but do you by chance know Hugh's wife (Mable)and or James wife (Ellen) maiden names?
My wife and I are going to Ireland in May, so it is possible I can find the info there?
Thanks again for the names!

Ellen Gillogly's maiden name is possibly Burke. I don't remember where I heard that and do not have any documentation to show that. James and Ellen were married when they came to America from Ireland. Hugh married Mable after arriving in Bangor. The one record I have found states her maiden name was Gillogly. It seems this may be an error.

You must be related to Austin and Rosetta Christian. How so?

Enjoy your trip to Ireland. Let me know if you find anything there.

Austin & Rosetta (Manix-Gillogly) Christian were my grandparents.
Never met Austin Sr but have many happy memories of Rosetta in Augusta.
Rumor has it they are planning a Manix (Gillogly) family reunion during the Augusta rodeo this June?
I leave for Ireland May 9th for a 2 week tour, only a couple of days in Northern Ireland. Any requests?

Have a great trip to Ireland and send me more info about the Gillogly - Manix family reunion. If I am able, I would love to go. I have a Sheehy cousin in Missoula (so do you, evidently) who may also like to go.

If you get to Ederney, County Fermanaugh, I would love to see pictures of the town and of Gillogly gravestones in the cemetary, if there are any. A marriage record of James Gillogly and Ellen Burke would also be great, but you probably need more time and a lot of luck to find it. My guess is that the marriage date is between 1820-1825.

Take care,
Jim Sheehy

Time to search is going to be the problem, maybe I can break away from the group when we near Ederney and look around a bit, at least get some pictures of the area, cemetary?
Can you e-mail me with an e-mail address, I can forward on to my cousins that are involved in trying to set this reunion up?

My mother is a manix and she just gave me a copy of her family tree, and I was scanning through it and there is a biography from margret etta manix. I can maybe send you a copy if you'd like. I'm sure that my mom would be excited about getting in touch with some of her relatives too.

Surnames: Galen Gilogly
Hugh Galen was the husband of Matilda Gillogly (Gilogly), father of Nellie. Incidentally, Nellie (actually, Ellen) married Thomas H. Carter, eventual senator from Montana. Albert J. Galen, Hugh and Matilda's son, was Attorney General from Montana.

The Galen horse ranch (at Willow Springs) was near Radersburg, and the Gilogly's came out to Montana because of the Galen family's financial success. One of the Gilogly's was a blacksmith in Townsend (Broadwater County), and there are Gilogly's buried in that County.

I have the Shadow of the Rockies, and I found her record very interesting. I'm not related - just interested in Montana History.
