Comment*Suspect this is Sarah #943, the daughter of Anzilla Galloway and Rosier Brannon. Lived with aged Eleazor Galloway and Leaty in 1850 census, not far from Rozier Brannon family. 
Birth*circa 1838Alabama, USA1

Henderson - children of Lutilia) and (Larrah Brannon - possible daughter of Anzilla). The adjacent household is Anna Parrish (70 SC), Leaty's sister, with several Galloways in that household.

Complete household:
"Eleazeir Galaway", male age 70, farmer, born in SC;

Comment*Leroy Brannon is not a candidate for Rosanna husband, since orphan children were named in court records after his death in 1808 implying wife's death preceded his.
