The census taker apparently got months employed wrong, he listed almost everyone on this and immediately adjacent pages as unemployed 12 months out of year. On a later page he struck out a page full of 12 month entries, leaving no entries.

The census taker appears to have got some of the birth places wrong, need to check another census to confirm.2

Birth*before 17551800 census identifies him as over 451,2 
(Witness) NoteJames Galloway; Probable children of James Galloway #1707 are Abraham Galloway #1821 on this site, James Galloway #1700, Absalom Galloway #1697. Listed as so on this site, not confirmed. 
My ResearchNote*Eleazer Galloway; South Carolina, USA; Abraham Galloway #1821 has, based on paper records, seemed the best candidate for father of Eleazer Galloway because he is shown to have been in Camden and Cheraws Districts before 1790 and he is of the the Galloway family that had substantial land around Lynches Creek. One source alleges that Eleazer was from the Lynches Creek area. In the 1800 census Abraham had a male age 16-25 in the household, in the range for Eleazer although Eleazer's birth date is uncertain. 
Military*say 1780American Revolution, South Carolina Militia, Camden District, South Carolina, USA; service dates not named, reference payment in 1787 for prior military service. One researcher cites also a payment in January 1785.3 
Note*Probable children of Abraham Galloway #1821 are Abraham Galloway #1912 on this site, Eleazer Galloway #1312, and William Galloway #1442. I have not found the paper records to confirm this family and have not found confirmation by other researchers. However, dna tests match my family (descendants of Eleazer Galloway) with a descendant of Abraham Galloway #1912, called Abraham Galloway Jr. in most public trees. If this Abraham is the son of Abraham #1821 then the strong implication is that Eleazer and Abraham Jr. are brothers and that Abraham #1821 is their father, mother unknown.

Researcher Nelda Martin on Rootsweb in her Hutto-Martin tree (2002) states that this land was across the creek from James Galloway, presumably William's father.

Land*26 February 1803Darlington County, South Carolina, USA; research notes cite a land sale from Wm Balk to Rigdon Balk, referring to the land as part of the 400 acre Abraham Galloway land grant of April 3, 1786. Note that Absalom Galloway had a substantial land grant in the same year.8 
Land*1 February 1808Thomas Galloway; Lynches Creek, Sumter District, South Carolina, USA; *appeared on a land plat of 800 acres for George Gideon and Alexander Gage, shown as owning adjacent land|| The land was at the confluence of Mill Creek, Lynches Creek, and Stump Branch.

(Witness) NoteJames Galloway; Probable children of James Galloway #1707 are Abraham Galloway #1821 on this site, James Galloway #1700, Absalom Galloway #1697. Listed as so on this site, not confirmed. 
Birth*before 1762Darlington County Region, South Carolina, USA; Birth was before 1774 per 1790 federal census. Date before 1762 seems likely since he was a buyer at an estate sale in 1782.4,1,2,5 
My ResearchNote*Eleazer Galloway; South Carolina, USA; Absalom Galloway is unlikely as a candidate for Eleazer Galloway's father. Absalom's will names his current wife, refers to earlier marriage and children of the marriage, names children, but does not name Eleazer. Absalom died between 1793 (date of his will) and probably 1800. Eleazer was born c1787 so as a minor in 1793 should have been named in the will. 
Misc*1782Camden District, South Carolina, USA; a buyer at the estate sale of Samuel Ratcliff6

Alexander Galloway1

#1934, b. before 1756
Last Edited30 Dec 2004
Comment*candidate for Eleazer father but he was in York County in 1790, making him far less likely; had 3 males under 16 in household in 1790 
Birth*before 17561,2 
Comment*Alexander Galloway; the Alexander who served in the South Carolina Militia during the American Revolution could have been either of these. Alexander #2138 of Fairfield County in 1800 seems a somewhat more likely choice given Fairfield County's closer location to the service locations listed. Alexander #1934 of York County also seemed to have a close link to Peter of York County, and I believe that the York Peter is not the one who served in the Revolution. 
Cen-Head*1790SC York Co Census 1790; York County, South Carolina, USA; "Alexander Galaway", male over 16, with 3 males under 16, 2 females. Adjacent was Peter Galloway household.1
