Hi, Denny,
Only two Mary Gallaghers are in the 1920 obits and neither were married to Peter.  Any possibility that she spelled her name differently?  What was her maiden name?

First, let me apologize for "dumping" my problem on the list. Had I stopped 
to think, I would have realized that newspapers are "date" driven, not
surname.  I'm unaware of the query criteria required and I guess I just assumed that
if  you entered the name Mary Gallagher, an index of the obits would appear.

That being said, and the fact that she was listed as 90 years old in the 
1920 Census, I have come up with ten possibilities:

Mar. 9, 1920
Dec. 10, 1920
Oct. 4, 1921
Oct. 25, 1921
Jul. 26, 1922
Sep. 4, 1924
Nov. 30, 1924
Jul. 3, 1925
Dec. 23, 1926
Apr. 3, 1927

She may be listed as Mrs. Peter Gallagher.

I hope this additional information aids in the discovery of the data
