Notes
Private Charles Gallagher was born in Donegal, Ireland on February 8, 1882. He immigrated to Canada with his parents, James and Catherine in 1884, where they settled in Winterbourne, near Waterloo, Ontario. On January 13th, 1916, he enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force at Berlin, Ontario and was placed into the 256th Q.S. Railway Construction Battalion. His ID was 751347. This Battalion soon amalgamated into the 10th Railway Construction Battalion. The Battalion mobilized at Toronto, and arrived in France on June 19th, 1917. Gallagher passed away on August 19, 1951 at the age of 69. On his attestation forms he is listed as Roman Catholic, however the 1911 Census records him as Presbyterian and he is buried in the Winterbourne Presbyterian cemetery. He is buried with his wife Mrs. Gallagher and son, Chris Gallagher.
