MARVIN DEWEY (GALLMAN) BROADHEAD

Marvin Dewey Broadhead Sr., is the firstborn son of Wesley Chapel Gallman and Dora (Broadhead) Gallman. Dora died when Marvin Dewey Gallman. was just a baby, then his father, Wesley Chapel Gallman died when he was about 9 years old. Marvin Dewey Gallman‘s grandfather, Dock Broadhead, adopted Marvin Dewey Gallman and had his name changed to Marvin Dewey Broadhead Sr.

A copy of the adoption papers has been provied and will be in the 2010 edition.

Etta L. (BATES) GALLMAN

 

Etta L. (Bates) Broadhead is the sister of Lucille “Cilla” Bates Gallman.

She is the daughter of William M. Bates and Winnie Lovine (Bishop) Bates.

She is the grand daughter of William E. Bates and Lucinda (Pigeon) Bates.

Marvin Dewey GALLMAN adopted into the BROADHEAD family.

My Aunt Myrtice told me some of the story of her Uncle Dewey. He is Marvin Dewey (GALLMAN) Broadhead Sr. She said that Dewey and her mom and dad would talk about old times a lot. She was curious and “I would listen”.

Here is story that she told me, after Dewey’s father, Wesley Chapel died, Dock Broadhead came over to Wesley Chapel Gallman's house with some bags of money. Not big bags, they were small bags, the tie string bags that tabacco used to come in. Dock explained to the family that he did not have any heirs to his name and wanted to adopt Dewey so he would have someone to carry on his family line. Dewey already had two brothers, William Harvey Gallman and Arthur Leon Gallman to carry on the Gallman name.

It was thought back then that Dewey being a young man of 8 or 9 years old was old enough to make this decision and decide for himself.

Dewey decided to go with his grandfather.

Many of the family were not sure that this adoption was real. Meaning that there were no legal papers on the matter.

However, Jenney has a copy of them and has given me a copy. They will be in the 2010 edition of the Gallman Family History. Another Interesting thing has come from Jenney, she said that Dock Broadhead did have other heirs. At this time I do not know who they are and why Dock chose to say he did not have any.
