Unfortunately, there won't be many more records that we can find - perhaps the death certificate would give you the information of who was the informant and might indicate if the death was a result of an accident - I have glanced thru http://www.fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html but so far nothing  :'(
Have you traced the other 2 brother - Hugh and John after 1910  ???

Hi. Yes I have traced James's 2 brothers John and Hugh.John settled in Brooklyn, New York and Hugh settled in Fairfield,Connecticut. Both married after arriving in America and both had families. Each of them called one of their sons James, presumably after 'our' James as their father's name was Hugh.

Hi, just wondering if anyone is aware of additional records coming into the public domain in the intervening 4 plus years since I last posted on this thread that would help establish if the James Gallagher mentioned here is my great uncle? For example, are death certs from New York for 1912 now viewable on-line?

Thanks.
Paul.
