Abraham, b. 18 Nov. 1666; Isaac, 2 July 1669; Jacob, 15 Aug. 1671;
Bartholomew, 26 Apr. 1674; Daniel and Mary tw. 17 Aug. 1676; and perhaps
more. BENJAMIN, Danvers, prob. s. of Ambrose, freem. 1690. DANIEL,
Salem, m. 100, Rebecca, d. of Stephen Swett of Newbury. EDMUND,
Cambridge, d. 29 July 1642. EDMUND, Salisbury, freem. 1666, rem.
perhaps to Marblehead, and next to Falmouth bef. 1689. HUGH, Kittery,
freem. 1652. JOHN, Boston 1634, in rec. of his adm. to the ch.
said to be in employm. of John Button, d. soon. JOHN, Watertown, s. of
Richard, m. 27 Sept. 1677, Elizabeth d. of Henry Spring, had Elizabeth b. 1 June
1678; John, 5 Apr. 1680, d. at 18 yrs.; Sarah, 12 Dec. 1681; Abigail;
Hannah; both bapt. 19 June 1687; and Abia, 14 July 1689. RICHARD,
Watertown 1640, m. Mary Castle, had Sarah, b. 8 Sept. 1641; Abraham;
Mary; John, both s. bef. ment. perhaps Abigail; and Ephraim. Sarah m. 3
Apr. 1663, Joseph Garfield; and Mary m. 30 Mar. 1670, John Flagg. Twelve
of this name had in 1834 been gr. at the various N. E. coll.

    GALL, AMBROSE, perhaps of Charlestown, m. as is said, Mary, d. of
Samuel Ward, in early days; but in my opin. the surname is error for
Gale, and for EDMUND, Marblehead 1668, I have the same charita.

    GALLARD. See Gaylord.

    GALLISON, ELISHA, Falmouth 1689, had a garrison ho. but Willis, I.
200, calls him Elihu Gullison. See Geneal. Reg. III. 25. Possib. he was s.
of Hugh Gunnison.

    GALLOP or GALLUP, BENJAMIN, perhaps the same as BEN ADAM,
Boston, s. of John the sec. m. Esther, d. of John Prentice of New London,
had Hannah, b. 22 May 1683; Esther, 1 Nov. 1685; Mary, Aug.
1687; Benadam, 18 Apr. 1693; Joseph, 27 Sept. 1695; Margaret, 11
May 1698; and Lucy, 12 July 1701. Most, or all of these, were b. at
Stonington. With other volunteers from Boston, he went to the Vineyard
sound, where, tho. their own master was mort. wound. in the fight,
they took and brot. to B. a pirate sloop, in Oct. 1689. He d. 2
Aug. 1727, and his wid. d. 18 Aug. 1751. HUMPHREY,
Dorchester 1630, came prob. in the Mary and John, by w. Ann had
Joseph, b. 1633. JOHN, Dorchester 1630, perhaps br. of the preced.
rem. soon to Long island, part of Boston, 1632, was a fisherman and
pilot, and prob. liv. alternate. down the harb. and up in town, where ho.
and garden he had, as in the book of poss'sions. join. to the ch. 6 Jan.
1634, freem. 1 Apr. foll. brot. w. Christobel, wh. liv. to summer of 1655,
and ch. John, Samuel, Nathaniel, and Joan, wh. m. Thomas Joy; and
he d. Jan. 1650. His will of 20 Dec. 1649, pro. 9 Feb. foll. provides
for all these, and gives £2. to new meeting-house, then building; and the
will of his wid. is to be seen in Geneal. Reg. V. 444, made 24 July
1655, pro. 31 Oct. foll. He seems, by his conduct in punishm. murderers
of John Oldham, to have been very brave, and he left brave descend.
