WILLIAM H. GALLUP, 80 years old, a veteran of the Civil war, died 6 a.m. Saturday following an illness covering several years which followed a paralytic stroke. He regained the use of his limbs after his stroke but his health was impaired and his decline has been gradual. For the past few weeks he has been in critical condition and was confined to his bed. A few nights before his death he was thought to have been stricken again but his condition was such that definite decision was not possible. He was born in Spencer in May 1838, and except for his absence during the war, he has spent his life here. He enlisted in Co. H. 14th Indiana Inf. at Terre Haute June 7, 1861 and served three years. Returning home for a short furlough he again enlisted in 1865 in Co. D. 149th Indiana and served till the war ended a few months later. Mr. Gallup was married 51 years ago to SALLIE GLOVER, a daughter of William Glover. The wife survives him. He is also survived by two brothers, E.V. Gallup and John Gallup both of Spencer. Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the Christian church, Rev. Davison in charge, and interment was made in Riverside cemetery.
