Halloween Gallagher 1892~1953

Believe it or not, some children born on Oct. 31st are given the first name HALLOWEEN by their parents.

Found in the SSDI (Social Security Death Index) for Georgia:

Halloween Venable b. OCt 31, 1892 d Sept 1974

Halloween Kea 1916-1992

Haloween Russell 1921-1981.

But my personal fav is Halloween Gallagher born in Penetanguishene
Ontario 31 Oct 1892 to parents William and Agnes. Why is she my fav?
Because Penetang (as it's called) is not far from where I live!

Halloween went on to marry John Thomas Codnere from Toronto. In 1951
Halloween Codnere is found in the Border Crossing Records going from
Canada to Ashville North Carolina to join her husband, Dr. J. T. Codnere. She died in Sept. 1953 in Skyland, Buncombe North Carolina,
and her death certificate is online. I haven't found her tombstone but
I'd sure like to see a photo of it!
