(Witness) Legal17 July 1867James Eleazor Galloway, James Daniel Murphy; Abbeville, Henry County, Alabama, USA; Supreme Court of Alabama and Probate Court of Henry County:
Eleazer Galloway's grandson James Eleazer Galloway, son of William E. Galloway, deceased, petitioned the Henry County Probate Court in January 1865 to set aside the November 1864 sale of Eleazer's land to Elizabeth Driggers and Rosier Brannon, citing several particulars having to do with insufficient notification to heirs of intended sale. James Eleazer was in the Army at the time of the sale, and several grandchildren lived out of state. Petitions alleged that none of the out of state heirs (all grandchildren) were notified of the sale, and that there was no official notification to Rosier Brannon yet he was a winning bidder. James Eleazer Galloway was a minor still, and enlisted his "next friend" James D. Murphy to represent him in the case. James D. Murphy, son of Daniel and Elizabeth Murphy, lived adjacent to Eleazer and Leaty Galloway in 1860. James Murphy submitted all the petitions to the court on behalf of James Eleazer Galloway. It's not clear whether James Murphy had legal training (he identified himself as a hatter in the 1860 census) or whether they hired an attorney, but their petitions were well written.

The Henry County Probate Court in a special term November 3, 1866, refused to set aside the original sale. James Eleazer appealed to the Alabama Supreme Court. On 17 July, 1867, the court affirmed the ruling of the Henry County Probate Court, and awarded fees of $200. to Edward J. Galloway, administrator of the estate, to be paid by James D. Murphy.

Rozier died February 9, 1867, before this case was concluded.25
