On Friday January 20th during our class, we had as a guest lecturer BYU's Wikipedia Ambassador, who was giving us pointers on how to edit a Wikipedia entry. When he asked for a hint from the class as to an article one of us would be interested in editing, I suggested Isaac Galland. During the demonstration, we were able to add the photograph of Isaac Galland, which was taken a few years before his death.
The link at the bottom of this page sends you to a photograph of a portrait of Isaac painted about 1836 by George Caleb Bingham, when Isaac was about 45 years old.
The photograph was taken about 1850, when Isaac was 60 or older.
Isaac Galland was born in 1790 in Pennsylvania, and shortly after his birth the family moved near Marietta, Ohio, on Donation Tract lands.
