53 "Mr. Gallagher was considered one of the leading authorities on county and town law, in the State of New York. His counsel was sought in these matters by State officials and legislators, as well as by local officials. He was a leading figure in the Association of County Officers of New York State, and served on the most important committees of that body, including legislative and welfare. In this service he had much to do with legislation for revision of county and town law, also in amendments to the welfare law designed to lower the public welfare burden.

Mr. Gallagher was legal advisor to all 22 towns of Oswego county, and was always responsive to the almost innumerable demands made upon him for advice and opinions. He was particularly well-versed in compilation of budgets and had much to do with recent budget changes and reforms on the county and town levels. In his long career, Mr. Gallagher had much to do with changes in the governmental structure of the county and town. He was a tireless worker, spending long hours at his office, and being available for consultation at practically all times. Mr. Gallagher was a personal friend of Governor Dewey and Lieutenant Governor Frank Moore, and many other state officials."

61 "Poor Paddy!" Left mortality, Patrick Fitzpatrick, on the morning of April 9th, 189, aged from 50 to 90 years - a true specimen of the untaught Milesian. No more will his resonant voice be heard awaking the echoes of Oneida Lake. For thirty odd years, expecting the time when Paddy was wasting his patriotism in aiding to squelch the great rebellion, have his tones been heard by man and beast. Heedless of all personal distinctions, his wit and wild vagaries were ever ready to answer the greeting of a friend or repel the sallies of a foe. Paddy was ne exquisite - a diamond in the rough, born without record, but not without a heart; for in the exhilaration of his wasted moments, his body full of liquor, his heart was clean for charity, and he would empty his pocket of his last dime to aid the child and widow in distress, while he cursed the importunate prisoner of his bounty - Paddy had patrimony, nor did he acquire large allodial possession; a small cemetery lot, wherein he laid the bones of his parents, and built their monument, and hoped to lay his own, was his only handed right; And of this he was robbed, by religious assumption and ecclesiastic usurpation. He was laid in the "potter's field" like many other great and goodly commoners, peacefully at rest, ___ the day of resurrection, when the Lord Jesus, at no small Judge the monarch and beggar - the priest and poor Paddy; but by man's device and ___ but by his own divine law, and appoint him place above reordering; the faith and work done in his own body. Good-by and luck to Paddy.  Fitzpatrick, Patrick (I483)

77 "Whether [Mary's father] ... determined upon a place has not come to light, but at any rate he seems to have sent for his family, who on September 26th, 1829 embarked at London in the "Mary Lord". The diary of his daughter Mary, now in possession of the writer, gives a most interesting account of the voyage. Just one month was consumed on the passage, smallpox broke out on board, they passed the ship which was conveying to their father the news of their coming, and when they finally arrived in New York City on October 27th, he was not there and his whereabouts were unknown.

80 "William was one of a party of English people who emigrated to America. Just what caused these people to come, how many there were, or who were the leaders is not known. Among them however were Mr. Cossum, Mr. Mannington and Thomas Nowers, the last named, a nephew of William's mother, and therefore a cousin to William. Also in the company was William's older sister Decima who was engaged to be married to Thomas Nowers. It was very natural therefore that the youth of sixteen, fired by the prospects of life, adventure and the chances of success in a new land, siezed the opportunity to join the party. There are no details extant of the exact time or of the trip across the ocean, except that it required six weeks, nor are the reasons known that led the band up the Hudson River and thence no doubt by the Erie Canal to Utica, N.Y. It is quite probable however that the fact that the cousin Horace Foster was then living in that city had something to do with making it their destination. They evidently reached Utica in June of 1830, and their arrival marked a most important event in William's life, the meeting with the young lady, Mary Cramp, who was later to share as his wife, some of the hardships and many of the successes of his later life." Foster, William H.

97 ... The first was that of Lorin Lavancher, who was arrested by order of the Overseer of the Poor, charged with deserting his family and failing to provide them means of support. An investigation into the facts, however, showed that he had always supported his family as well as the average, although he and his wife were frequently quarreling; and that this action was brought principally by her because of his association with other women, as she declares, which, if true, is of course very discreditable to him. Justice Lane released Lavancher, and he left town forthwith. Family F202
