Edwin A. Gallup
News & Citizen: JAN. 25, 1920
The community was greatly shocked Friday evening to learn of the sudden death of E.A. Gallup. Mrs. Gallup had been away for the afternoon, leaving him in his usual health. Returning home and not finding him in the house or stables, she asked one of the neighbors to search for him. He was found dead in the hayloft, where he had been pitching down hay-death being caused by heart failure. He was 77 years old, a veteran of the Civil War, losing a leg in the same. The funeral was held from the Advent Christian Church Tuesday afternoon, Rev. V.A. Ober officiating, interment in the North Hyde Park cemetery.
He leaves a wife, one son, and three daughters, and several grandchildren, also several near relatives, and a host of friends.
