George and Henry are listed in the 1900 census as partners and as farmers, but in 1907, George married Clara Thompson and moved to his own place. Henry was left at the home place taking of his mother and he never married. In 1908, his oldest sister (my great great grandmother) died and her four children came out west. The oldest, my great grandfather, went his own way after bringing his siblings out on the train. The younger three moved in and made the Gallup home place their home. I don't think that circumstance lasted too long. I have heard that the son, Peter, felt as though he was treated as a hired hand and if he was going to be treated that way, then he might as well be paid for it. The youngest, Alice also was living with another family as a servant. So in the 1910 census, only Everett Henry, his mother Phoebe and his niece Phoebe are in the household. I have heard enough from relatives, that Phebe Montanye Gallup was not the easiest person to live with and many in the family felt that her granddaughter, Phebe Gage, was a remarkable person for staying to take care of her grandmother. I have to wonder if the same might been said about Henry or (Everett Henry) which was his full name. Henry Gallup never married and was the only one of his siblings to do so. Phebe Montanye Gallup died on 21 Jun 1927 in Oakland, Burt Co., NE and left at the Gallup home place was Henry and his niece, Phoebe...and old bachelor and his old maid niece.

They lived together and continued on as before with Henry working the farm and Phebe taking care of the home and all of the other things that women did during that time. All that changed on 16 May, 1932, when Henry died in a tractor accident at the age of 58. He wasn't the youngest of his sibling to die - two sisters had predeceased him, but he was the first of the Gallup brothers to die. The farm was sold as well as all of the contents and while Phebe was supposed to not inherit anything by her grandmother's will, Henry's siblings made sure that she did - because along with her uncle - they had taken care of Phebe Gallup and the family farm for decades. Unlike her uncle, Phebe did not remain unmarried and married a widower, August Peterson when she was 43 years of age. In fact, I dimly remember meeting her before she died in 1976 at the age of 81.
