My dear Sir, just read you 'letter', and would like to add, if any use, my own Galloway history. I am living now in Darlington, Durham County, but was born In Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire. My father, Robert James Harland Galloway, was born in Stockton on Tees, in 1910, nearby, his father , William James, was born in 1875,in Stockton too I believe, now -,this is where the story varies ...HiS dad, was born in about 1842, in either, Ireland ( North ), Antrim is mentioned, or Scotland, Kirkaldy is mentioned....ah me, you take your pick at these times ! ... Other than that, on my mother's side, which is Swales, that is pure North Yorkshire. Hope this snippet helps, I am about to visit my two eldest daughters, who reside in Michigan now, near Detroit.
