Margaret Malinda Galloway, the daughter of James and Mary Barker Galloway, was born 8 June 1894 in Fannin County, Georgia. She married Charlie D. Shell, about 1909, probably in Fannin County, Georgia, but maybe in Polk County, Tennessee. Charlie was born 7 March 1887 in Polk County Tennessee and died 11 August 1920. Randy Shell submission to Ancestry.com in 2005 shows that Margaret "Minnie" married three times, Clifford Queen, Charlie Shell, LeRoy Wilner. I believe that Charlie Shell was her 1st husband, as she was 16 on the 1910 census in Polk County, Tennessee. Minnie Shell died 5 May 1983 in Fannin County, Georgia and both she and Charlie are buried in the Galloway Family Cemetery, in McCaysville, Georgia.
