(Resident) Census3 June 1880John N. Murphy, AL Henry Co Census 1880; ED#84, Beat#9, Census pg 5, hh#15, Abbeville, Henry County, Alabama, USA; "J. N. Murphy", head, male age 47, farm laborer, born in Alabama, both parents born in Georgia;

"Quincy Murphy", son age 11, born in Alabama, father born in Alabama, mother born in Georgia;
"Lula Murphy", daughter age 3, born in Alabama, father born in Alabama, mother born in Georgia.

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

(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 service3 
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.

 8.George Galloway13,14,8 b. 13 May 1788, d. 5 Nov 1854
 9.Anne Galloway15,12 b. c 1792
(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 
Land Grant*3 April 1786Darlington County, South Carolina, USA; an Absalom land grant was referred to in a sale of land by Richard Ingram to Bolton Harris on Sept 15, 18277 
Marriage*before 1789Spouse unknown, but referred to in Absalom's will8 
Land*31 October 1789James Galloway; 196 acres, north side of Lynches Creek, Darlington County, South Carolina, USA; It appears that father James Galloway provided for wife Rebecca by transferring land to son Absalom for her use, although I have no proof that the land transaction was from Absalom's father James.

Extract of Deed, James Galloway to Absalom Galloway: "...witnesseth that for and in consideration of twenty Pounds Sterling money of the said state to him in hand paid by the said Absalom Galloway at or before the signing sealing and delivering of these presents the receipt of which I the said James Galloway do acknowledge and have granted bargained sold and delivered and by these presents do bargain sell deliver and confirm unto the said Absolom Galloway in his actual possession now being by virtue of a bargain and sale to him for twenty pounds to him his heirs assigns forever a tract of land containing one hundred and ninety six acres part of two tracts and for the said Galloways [transcriber's note: there is no punctuation in Galloways] mother Rebecca Galloway is to have her life time in this said tract situate in Darlington County on the north side of Linches Creek granted to James Galloway bounded on William Barreks line together with all the houses, barnes, edifices, buildings, gardens, orchards, ferrys, waters, water courses, prophets, commodities, hereditament appurtenances thereunto belonging or in anywise appertaining to the said one hundred and ninety six acres of land herein mentioned the ditch to be the line between the two and all other lines agreeable to the three brothers with all the rights titles, true trust possession benefits property plains and demands whatsoever of him the said James Galloway to have and to hold the said one hundred and ninety six acres of land with all and singular the premises before mentioned unto the said Absalom Galloway his heirs and assigns forever ....

"Recorded in Book AA Page 175 176 & 177 and examined this 25th day of January 1790 Test Evander McIver Clk Ct.
Recorded 2nd March 1815"9 
Marriage*before 1790Rachel Marshall; Absalom's second marriage, supported by reference in Absalom will to children of first wife, and to current wife Rachel. Rachel was later head of household in 1800 census, with some neighbors corresponding to 1790 Absalom. Date is a guess based on will of Absalom.1,10,8

Will*1 January 1793Darlington County, South Carolina, USA; The will of Absalom Galloway, witnessed by James Galloway (probable brother), names wife Rachael, lending her "one third of the plantation whereon I now live as a dowry during her widowhood". It names her as outright recipient of many items, names her to receive "all the Hogs and Sheep in my mark for her Children begotten by me and my former Wife's Children till they become of Age."

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.
