James Thomas Galey was born in 1890 near Skidmore, Missouri, the son of Elisha and Eliza (Milleson) Galey. When the family moved from Missouri to Montana prior to World War I, "Tom" likely went along -- but he didn't stay. He eventually found his way to Dawes County, Nebraska, where he met Eva Cunningham. They married in 1933. Tom farmed east of Chadron and then just east of Whitney. He and Eva had six children. For many years, most everyone assumed that Tom was 58 years old when he died in 1958. In fact, while his tombstone in Whitney indicates he was born in 1900, legal documents say otherwise -- revealing that he was actually born in 1890.
