See attached exhibit for a transcription of the original records.6
(Witness) Estate10 November 1864Eleazer Galloway; Probate Court, Abbeville, Henry County, Alabama, USA; Land Sale: Rosier Brannon (son-in-law) bought 120 acres and Elizabeth Driggers (daughter) bought 160 acres of Eleazer's 280 acres. See attached exhibit for a complete transcription.7

(Witness) Legal17 July 1867James Eleazor Galloway, James Daniel Murphy; Abbeville, Henry County, Alabama, USA; Supreme Court of Alabama and Probate Court of Henry County:
Eleazer Galloway's grandson James Eleazer Galloway, son of William E. Galloway, deceased, petitioned the Henry County Probate Court in January 1865 to set aside the November 1864 sale of Eleazer's land to Elizabeth Driggers and Rosier Brannon, citing several particulars having to do with insufficient notification to heirs of intended sale. James Eleazer was in the Army at the time of the sale, and several grandchildren lived out of state. Petitions alleged that none of the out of state heirs (all grandchildren) were notified of the sale, and that there was no official notification to Rosier Brannon yet he was a winning bidder. James Eleazer Galloway was a minor still, and enlisted his "next friend" James D. Murphy to represent him in the case. James D. Murphy, son of Daniel and Elizabeth Murphy, lived adjacent to Eleazer and Leaty Galloway in 1860. James Murphy submitted all the petitions to the court on behalf of James Eleazer Galloway. It's not clear whether James Murphy had legal training (he identified himself as a hatter in the 1860 census) or whether they hired an attorney, but their petitions were well written.

The Henry County Probate Court in a special term November 3, 1866, refused to set aside the original sale. James Eleazer appealed to the Alabama Supreme Court. On 17 July, 1867, the court affirmed the ruling of the Henry County Probate Court, and awarded fees of $200. to Edward J. Galloway, administrator of the estate, to be paid by James D. Murphy.

Rozier died February 9, 1867, before this case was concluded.3 
Census*14 June 1880AL Henry Co Census 1880; Curetons, ED 83, Beat 7, hh 67, Henry County, Alabama, USA; complete household:

"Twigs Driggars", son age 25, worked on farm, born Alabama, parents born GA! (adopted, or census entry error).

In separate household (hh 68) but adjacent in census:

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

Name Variation10 September 1860Hilliary J. Galloway6 
Military*11 March 1862CSA, 33rd Alabama Infantry Regiment, Co B, Clopton, Alabama, USA; "Hillary (Hillery) J. Gallaway (Galloway)", age 24, enlisted as Private by Henry D. 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
