Hi,
Thank you Janiamac
I shall amend my tree. Is there anything else you can share about this family and their ancestors?

Dear Chris,
You will be surprised, I think, to find quite a lot of references to Gallaway miniatures if you google : "Alexander Gallaway, miniature artist". A number of them have come up at auction houses in the UK - mostly Christies and Bonham's - he was very good. If you would like to continue contact privately please do so.
Thanks.
Kind regards,
Francesr

Hello Francesr
Thanks for that- I did a quick search  and saw a few pages . The miniatures look to be very fine work. I had no idea that watercolour on ivory could be used in this way.
Love to continue privately- how do we arrange that?
warm regards,
Chrisby
