Name Variation Major Galbraith 
Birth*7 May 1769 York County, Pennsylvania, USA; Age at death 69. The Red Tower article claims he was born in PA. However, the 1880 census states that he was born in NC.
Interestingly, a letter written in 1957 by John William Galbraith (great grandson of William G.) stated the following: "I will endeavor to give you what information I have gotten from an aunt (Emma Galbraith Hancker), now deceased. According to her, my great or great great grandparents, one from Scotland, the other from
Ireland, one Galbraith, the other Galbreath, settled in Adams county, in the vicinity of Gettysburg. Annie
E. Warner, for whom the Gettysburg Hospital was named, was a descendant. Evidently she was a figure
of some note and should appear in the many historical ledgers which abound in the Gettysburg section.
At this point I have to skip generations or so to my grandfather, Walter, who had a twin sister, Keziah. This
is all I know of this generation. The children of Walter are as follows: John M. (who owned a town property
in New Grenada and died in the early 1930's). Grafton W., Emma, Mary and Robert E. (my father), all of whom
are deceased. I am one of nine children born to Robert Elmer and Elizabeth A. (Stone) Galbraith, namely
Mae B.,Viola J., Walter J., Edna P., John W., Elmer D., Mary E., Sarah E., and Olive. Of the above Mae ,
Viola, Mary and Olive are now deceased."
Was he talking of this generation - since a Galbraith married another Galbreath - were one of their parents from Scotland and the other from Ireland?4,5,6,7
