The Gallaher Children


                                       The Gallaher Children

                                                               (Click on the photo to enlarge it.)


I've "rescued" this old photograph identified as the Children of S. E. or B. E. GALLAHER.  The photograph was taken at the Al Ennor Studio in Neillsville, Wisconsin.  The photograph appears to have been taken in the   1880's with the two children in the photograph likely about 2-4 years old at the time.  I believe that the youngest is a girl and the oldest child a boy.   I'm hoping to locate someone from this GALLAHER Family so that this   wonderful old photograph can be returned to the care of family.


If you are a member of this family, or know someone who might be, please contact me.
