Able to trace 'Gallahue' name line with certainty back to Darby (AKA Jeremiah) Gallahue born abt. 1700. However, brick wall on his father (Jacques Gallahaut; AKA James Gallahue) a French Huguenot who immigrated to Virginia Colony via England about 1685. Only source for Jacques Gallahaut is information from Virginia Historical Magazine vol. 57, January 1949. Would appreciate any information you may be able to provide.

best wishes, David Gallahue Sr.
