He was, for a number of years, registrar of vital statistics, New Haven. He died at New Haven in 1873, as the result of a fall from a cherry tree. He married, about 1860, Winifred Brady of Philadelphia, Pa., who died at New Haven late in 1890. Their children were: Catherine, Julia, Mary (deceased), Winifred, Ellen, and Charles A. (deceased).

From Page 110 of Murray’s History of the Ninth Regiment CV and their departure from Vicksburg:
"After a month of this deadly service, the engineers discovered that the water was falling and would not flow through their canal; and the work was abandoned. Williams' brigade returned down the river again about the 1st of August; Breckinridge pursuing along the shore. On the boat Algerine left behind were three hundred sick, in charge of Surgeon Gallagher of the Ninth. * * *
