Photo at top: A historical photo of the Gallagher Farm in Redford, provided by Maureen Wrightsman. The woman in the center is Wrightsman’s great-grandmother Rose Elizabeth Coffey Gallagher, who was born in 1861. Wrightsman estimates the photo was taken in the late 1800’s/early 1900’s. Her great-grandfather was Thomas Gallagher, born in 1857. Her ancestors came from Mullingar, County Westmeath Ireland during the Potato Famine, dating back to her great-great-great grandfather, James Gallagher, who was born in Ireland.
