    Excerpt from William Davis Gallagher: A Biographical Sketch

    William davis gallagher, poet, editor, and public official, was born in Philadelphia, August 21, 1808. His father, Bernard Gallagher, familiarly called Barney, was an Irishman, a Roman Catholic, a participant in the rebel lion that, in 1803, cost Robert Emmett his life. Barney' Gallagher migrated to the United States, landing at the city of brotherly love, where, by the aid of John Binns, editor of the Shamrock, he obtained work. Some time afterward he became acquainted with Miss Abigail Davis, of Bridgeport, New Jersey, who had been sent to Phila delphia by her widowed mother, to complete, at Quaker school, an education begun at home. Abbey Davis was the daughter of a Welsh farmer, who, volunteering in the Revolutionary War, lost his life under Washington at Valley Forge. The Irish refugee and the Welsh patriot's daughter were so much attracted to each other that they joined their lives in wedlock. Four sons, Edward, Francis, William and John were the issue of this marriage. The third was a child not eight years old when the father died. On his death-bed Bernard Gallagher refused to confess to his ministering priest the secrets of Free Masonry, which order he had joined, and the church not only refused him burial in consecrated grounds, but also condemned his body to be exposed to public derision in front of his own door; and the execution of this sentence was prevented by application for police interference. This was in 1814.
