Thanks Sandra and Kloumann. What I am trying to establish is if Hugh and his wife Anne Theresa had any children.

Paul.

Noticed in the father Hugh J Gallagher obituary it said he had 9 grandchildren.

The Bridgeport Telegram Bridgeport, Connecticut 4 Jun 1962, Mon    Page 24

https://www.newspapers.com/clip/60499942/hugh-j-gallagher-4-june-1962/

In the obit for James Gallagher (above) he had 4 grandchildren

There are 14 anc trees - can see two that indicates 5 children - which would fit with the figures above.
