Clayton for three years or for the war. Detailed as nurse to hospital on 19th April by order of General Bragg 4th Sergeant, in service until surrender of his unit May 1864.

A pension application in Henry County, 1920/12/04, by Lucy V. Gallaway (widow) states that indicates that Hillary J. Gallaway entered the unit April 1862, was wounded at The Battle of Perryville, Ky, and left the service at Greensborough, North Carolina 1865/04/27. I see no records of a Henry County Hillary Gallaway married to a Lucy and it's not clear that these Hillarys are the same person. I see only one Hillary Galloway in Henry or Dale County in the pre-Civil War time frame.

A third record, for "Hilliary James Galloway" sourced as Census, Tax Collector, Dale County, Alabama 1907-08, shows enlistment at Clopton, Alabama 11 March, 1862, date of birth 13 Oct, 1837. 4th Sergeant, paroled, discharged May, 1865. Address: 1907-08, Capps, Ala.2,7

Land*1769Lynches Creek, Cheraws District, South Carolina, USA; The reference states: "The Galloway Cemetery is located on land originally owned by James Galloway. Galloway first appeared as a land owner on Lynches Creek in January, 1769. He later obtained several grants of land on both sides of Lynches Creek and actively supported the American Revolution during the 1770's and 1780's."1 
Residence1775St. David's Parish, South Carolina, USA; "date in Pee Dee: 1775 in St. David's Parish; served in Militia - Rev War"

from the South Carolina Genealogical Society website (Proctor): "In 1768 by an act of the General Assembly of the Province of South Carolina, St. David's Parish [Anglican] was established to serve both the religious and civic needs of a growing population. The parish included the lands that later became Chesterfield, Marlboro, and Darlington Counties and portions of Florence and Lee."3,4 
Military*28 September 1775American Revolution, South Carolina Militia Volunteer Corps, St. David's Parish, South Carolina, USA; Commissions were made out, signed, and dated for officers in Col Powell's Regiment of Militia, St. David's Parish. They included as an officer group Capt Thomas Hardyman, 2nd Lieut James Galloway, and Ensign Joseph Hardyman. This parish included the Lynches Creek area.

I think this commission was for father James #1707 rather than son James #1700, since the son could have been no older than 19 and was possibly younger.5,6 
Land16 November 1786280 acres, south of Lynches Creek, Cheraws District, South Carolina, USA; land plat surveyed by Elias Dubose, Jr, for John Falour, could easily be instead for James' son ID#17007 
Land*31 October 1789Absalom 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 ....

Father*William E. Galloway2 b. c 1828, d. b 1864
Mother*Jane (?) b. c 1827
NicknameElly3 
Birth1846Alabama, USA; this alternate birth date comes from the listed age of 4 for Elly in the 1850 census. However, other evidence supports 1849 birth. The 1850 census lists presumed father William E. in the household as having married within the year. I think Elly's age in this census is really 4 months, not 4 years.

This assumes of course that Elly in this census is really James Eleazor, but there is pretty good evidence for that including estate papers of Eleazer Galloway.3 
Birth*1849Henry County, Alabama, USA4 
(Resident) Census2 November 1850Anna Parrish, AL Henry Co Census 1850; Southern District, HH #961, Henry County, Alabama, USA; Household was next to Eleazer Galloway family.
Complete household:
"Anna Parrish", age 70, born in SC;
"WE Galaway", male age 22, farmer, born in Alabama, married within the year, attended school within the year;
"Jane Galaway", age 23, born in Georgia;
"Elly Galaway", male age 4, born in Alabama.

WE Galloway is William E. Galloway, Eleazer and Leaty Galloway's son, living with Leaty's older sister Anna Parrish. The young boy Elly appears to be listed as age 4 (legibility) but I suspect this is a census error and he is really a baby and son of the recently married WE and Jane, and is named after his grandfather Eleazer who at times went by Elly.5
