Galen Gough was born May 30, 1899, at his grandparents’ small log home in Howard’s Grove, Kentucky, and was described as a big, robust boy who was “smart as a tack” with an unquenchable “love for life.”1 Standing several inches taller and weighing a few pounds more than most of the other boys his age, the sandy-haired lad with the smooth complexion was by-and-large a cheerful youngster.
