JOHN GALEAN


Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Review Crawfordsville, Montgomery County Indiana July 9, 1881 "Gray Haired Pioneers, Of Coal Creek Township."


John Galean, 60 years. Came to this County from Ireland with his wife in 44 to make his fortune, but his wife soon tired of America and returned with the little ones to the Emerald Isle, he remaining here to gather the coveted fortune and regularly remitting his earnings to wife and little ones across the "dape, dape seas." John is a deft hand with the spade and clippers, and has done more to reclaim the waste lands of Coalcreek than any other man in it. He had no equal in the art of sheep shearing, but last winter fell down the stairs at Dr. D.M. Washburn's of New Richmond, breaking his collar bone and dislocating his solder, since which time he has not been able to do anything.
