Obituary

FORMER GUILFORD MAN DIES

Amos S. Gallup, Father of Perry C., and A. Gilbert Gallup of This Town, Was Visiting in Greenfield.

Amos S. Gallup, 83, formerly for more than 40 years selectman in Guilford and father of Perry C., and A. Gilbert Gallup of this town, died Sunday evening in the home of his daughter, and husband, Mr. And Mrs. Leon A. Starkey of 148 Federal street, Greenfield, Mass., where he and Mrs. Gallup were spending the winter. Death resulted from a shock which Mr. Gallup sustained two weeks ago.

Amos Stillman Gallup was the youngest and last survivor of the nine children of Joseph and Rebecca (Barney) Gallup and was born Dec. 1, 1840, in Guilford. On Nov. 27, 1867, he married Miss Elva S. DeWolf, youngest daughter of Rev. Daniel and Sarah (Platts) DeWolf of Halifax and with the exception of two years in Boston they have lived on the Barney hill farm where their four children were born, and where the son, A. Gilbert Gallup, well-known auctioneer, has been associated with his father.

Aside from serving his town as selectman for such a long term of years he was justice of the peace several years and was prominent in all town affairs.

Besides his wife, daughter and two sons already mentioned he leaves a daughter, Mrs. Arthur Perry of South Vernon, several grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

The funeral was held at the Starkey home in Greenfield at 11 o'clock Wednesday, and was largely attended. Rev. W. C. Bernard, pastor of St. Michel's Episcopal church, officiated. The burial took place in Christ Church cemetery in Guilford. The two sons, Perry C., and A. Gilbert Gallup and two sons-in-law, Arthur Perry and Leon Starkey, acted as bearers.
