Galva Emery

The first child born to my great great great grandparents, Sarah (Dwire or Dwyer) and David Emery was Galva who was born January 21, 1855.*

Galva Emery had the distinction of being the first child born in the new town of Galva, Illinois, for which they named their first born child.

Here is a snippet from "History of Henry County" by H.F. Kett Company, page 169:

Unfortunately, Galva died sometime after 1860 and prior to 1870.
