Journal*Leaty Parrish; Eleazer Galloway of the Darlington County region of South Carolina is the earliest known Galloway ancestor for the Balkcom line of western Oklahoma and southeast Alabama. Eleazer and his wife Leaty Parrish were early settlers in Henry County, Alabama and came to own substantial land there. Their link to the Balkcom line is through their daughter Anzilla Galloway who married Rosier Brannon of Henry County, formerly of Duplin County, North Carolina, in 1826. Rose Ann Brannon, a daughter of Rosier and Anzilla, had a son John Ira Balkcom who with his young family moved from Alabama to Texas in around 1901. After only a few years in Van Zandt County, Texas, they moved to Hollis in western Oklahoma. 
CommentEleazer shows up infrequently as a given name and may provide clues about ancestors. Eleazer was an occasional surname in the Lexington District of SC in the early 1800s. Biblically, "The chief leader of the Levites was Eleazar son of Aaron, the priest. He was appointed over those who were responsible for the care of the sanctuary."5 
My ResearchNote*My searches of genealogical records has not led to identificaion of the parents of Eleazer Galloway. I have thought that Abraham Galloway is most likely his father and that is now supported by a dna match that I have with a descendant of Abraham Galloway Jr. The following notes summarize some of the candidates who I have identified though records research and why Abraham, even before the dna match, has seemed the most likely parent. 
My ResearchNote*Absalom 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. 
My ResearchNote*Richard Galloway; South Carolina, USA; Richard Galloway has been a candidate for father of Eleazer Galloway, based solely on his appearing in the 1790 census as an adult male with a male u16 in household, when Eleazer would have been under age 10. There were 5 females in the household. I have not found records for Richard Galloway after1790. 
My ResearchNote*Abraham 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. 
My ResearchNote*Benjamin Galloway; South Carolina, USA; Benjamin Galloway has been a candidate for father of Eleazer Galloway because he owned land in the Lynches Creek area based on a land sale in 1771. He does not appear in the 1790 or later censuses. 
(Witness) NoteAbraham Galloway; 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 genealogical records to confirm this family and have not found confirmation by other researchers. However, dna tests match me (descendant 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. 
Birth*circa 1787Cheraws District, South Carolina, USA; South Carolina birth confirmed by 1850 census. Birth in Darlington District asserted in referenced book by Mrs Scott. Hoyt Warren's book is more specific that Eleazer was from the Lynches Creek area, near where Lynches Creek and Little Lynches Creek merge. Birthdate uncertain, 1880 per 1850 census, 1887 per 1860, and 1890-1899 per 1830 census.6,7,8

Cen-Head1810SC Kershaw Co Census 1810; Kershaw County, South Carolina, USA; "Elijah Galliway" male age 16-25, female 16-25, 1 male and 1 female under 10. Household makeup is consistent with this person actually being Eleazer Galloway. A neighbor comparison between 1820 and 1810 cannot be done since the 1820 census taker put the names in alphabetical order. Elijah's immediate neighbors were Edward Parrish Jr. and William Parrish, a son of Edward's. Nearby were Jeremiah Parrish Sr. and Jeremiah Parrish Jr. and families.11 
Military*14 September 1813Georgia Militia, War of 1812, Twiggs County, Georgia, USA; from the "Payroll of the 1st detachment of militia ordered out on the frontier of Twiggs County in pursuance of orders from Brig General David Blackshear dated 7 August 1813 for the protection of the inhabitants residing on the Ocmulghee, and to build Fort Jackson." Private "Eleazer Galloway" appeared on a roster in Lieutenant Lovett B. Smith's Company, apparently as a "defaulter", no pay was listed. He doesn't appear in service records at the National Archives for volunteers who served in this war. Several South Carolina Galloways served in South Carolina and Georgia regiments for short periods of time. This particular detachment seems to have been drafted into service.12

My ResearchNoteThere are no tombstones in Henry or Dale Counties for Eleazer or Leaty Galloway. I think it likely they are in one of the areas of Old Center Methodist Church Cemetery that is missing markers. This cemetery was near where they lived and where many in the family are buried.

Mr. Enoch Galloway, was born July 27th, 1795, in Darlington District, S.C., where he resided till the day of his death, which occurred Nov. 25, 1861. He was married to his wife, Mrs. Sena Galloway, Dec. 24, 1817, with whom
he lived happily till 18th June last, at which time she was taken away by the hand of God. He was the father of nine children, all of whom he lived to bring up to mature age, and all of whom he left to mourn their irreparable loss. He was a kind father and husband, a good citizen, and an excellent neighbor.... He joined the M.E. Church some forty years ago, and continued a zealous and faithful member till the day of his departure from earth....He was afflicted with that distressing disease, hydrothorax, for several months, while sitting upright, was compelled to labor hard for the breath of life....He seemed conscious that his end was close at hand for several days previous to his dissolution, and often while suffering the most intense pain, praised God aloud, and said he should soon go to reap his reward and to meet his dear departed companion in heaven. He retained his rationality in the highest degree down to his last moments, and while sitting in his chair, at 3½ o’clock p.m., grasped me by the hand, and his ransomed soul immediately took its flight and went up to heaven in a perfect blaze of glory...... A.B. Galloway
