I acquired a MAWVA medal at an antique show engraved on the reverse:

 

Peter Gallagher

Co. G

1st Tex. Cav.

"Widow"

 

Several questions. First does any MAW collector have any information on this individual? Second the last line of the engraving leads to two possibilities. Was "Widow" his nickname or was the medal presented to his widow? I realize the medals were not presented until 1876 so both are possibilities. Can anyone help?
