Married Namebefore 1771Galloway1 
Land14 October 1771Benjamin Galloway; 150 acres, near Lynches Creek, Craven County, South Carolina, USA; to John Piggott for Ten Shillings|| The transaction was made by two documents - one for the land sale and the second for wife Sarah to release any claim to the land as her dower. Witnesses were Nathaniel Piggott, Thomas Welch, and Charles Campbell. Transcriptions of these documents are attached. Land location is stated only generally, but it appears from the language that it abuts land of John Piggott. The documents name Benjamin Galloway's occupation as planter, his wife's name as Sarah, and describe the land as granted to him in 1770. There is no explanation for the extremely low selling price. Is it possible that this was a transfer within the family, say as if John Piggott were Sarah's father or brother?1
