This site is dedicated to the Galvin Family name and the History of Herrick, Il.  where we grew up.
We've recorded many Cemeteries  in Christian, Shelby and Fayette Counties and have included a Name Search  of our database.

As we work to trace our family roots we will post all information on this site. All names, data and sources will be added to the Galvin Family Database.

Information has been difficult to find and we hope that this site will help locate others searching the same family.
We are missing a great deal of information but will continue to search.
If you have any information you would share with us, or notice any mistakes in this data, please contact us.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Our Family as we have discovered so far.  (Additional information is included in the Galvin Family Database.)
Martin Galvin & Bridget McTigue
Martin Galvin was born in Kilrush Ireland. We are not sure what year he was born but have roughly calculated around 1827 using ages from census records. He married Bridget Mctigue, also from Ireland, and we calculate her birth somewhere around 1835. We don't know what year they came to America or if they were married before or after. The first place we can show them in America is Green County, Carrollton, Illinois in 1859. Martin and Bridget had at least seven children, Michael, William, Martin, Patrick, Joseph, Stephen and Anna. (data from census records, marriage license, death certificates and obituaries of their children)
