Joseph John and Peter have mmn Gallagher

Here are some more children born to that combination in Prescot  (the region covering Widnes)

WRIGHT, MARY        GALLAGHER        
Q2 1903  Volume 08B  Page 734

WRIGHT, JOHN        GALLAGHER      
Q3 1904  Volume 08B  Page 754

WRIGHT, MARGARET        GALLAGHER      
Q3 1905  Volume 08B  Page 767

WRIGHT, VERONICA        GALLAGHER      
q3 1908  Volume 08B  Page 739

I can find no more in that region after that, but they could have moved. Looks like the marriage itself was in Bolton

Marriages Q1 1898    Bolton vol 8c p577   
Doodson    Joseph        
Gallagher    Margaret         <<<
Tyldsley    Harriet        
Wright    Joseph John    <<<

I am guessing siblings,as they have the same mother's maiden name. However the family is proving hard to find in later years to link them together. can;t find a Lilly as yet, but that's not to say it was a name used in the family rather than on an official registration document
