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.

(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.19

Benjamin Galloway1

#2049, b. before 1750
Last Edited31 Dec 2015
Birth*before 1750date guessed based on receiving land grant in 1770.1 
Land Grant*24 August 1770150 acres bounding southward on Lynches Creek, Craven County, South Carolina, USA; An indenture of sale of land in 1771 refers to "a plantation or tract of land containing 150 acres situate in Craven County granted by his Majesty to the above named Benjamin Galloway as appears in the original grant thereof bearing date the 24th day of August 1770";

A second reference (Memorials ...) registers a land title, apparently this same land, on 14 October 1771, describing it further "..containing 150 acres bounding southward on Lynches Creek on all other sides on vacant land originally granted the 24th day of Aug 1770 unto Benjamin Galloway at 2t Nt of 3/St for 4/pro money ..."

It may be that Benjamin may have registered the land in order to sell it, but I don't have the full transcript from the first source. I do have the entire transcript from the second source.1,2 
Marriage*before 1771Sarah (?); Sarah was named as Benjamin's wife in a land deed1 
Occupation*1771Craven County, South Carolina, USA; a planter1 
Land*14 October 1771Sarah (?); 150 acres, near Lynches Creek, Craven County, South Carolina, USA; to John Piggott for Ten Shillings|| The transaction was made by two documents - one for the land sale and the second for wife Sarah to release any claim to the land as her dower. Witnesses were Nathaniel Piggott, Thomas Welch, and Charles Campbell. Transcriptions of these documents are attached. Land location is stated only generally, but it appears from the language that it abuts land of John Piggott. The documents name Benjamin Galloway's occupation as planter, his wife's name as Sarah, and describe the land as granted to him in 1770. There is no explanation for the extremely low selling price. Is it possible that this was a transfer within the family, say as if John Piggott were Sarah's father or brother?1
My ResearchNote*Eleazer 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.

    "After South Carolina was purchased from the Lords Proprietors and became a royal colony in 1729, the crown had legislation enacted to help facilitate the collection of quitrents. The Quitrent Act of 1731 required the registration of land grants issued during the proprietary period so as to validate the grants and establish an effective system to collect the rent (quitrents) due on the land. Later legislation provided for the registration of royal grants. The landholder was to present to the Auditor General or his Deputy documented evidence of the land title, including the amount of quitrent, but because not all grants were registered and the crown never established a successful mechanism to enforce the law, the payment of quitrents basically remained voluntary.

    The system of quitrents and the Auditor General's records end in the mid-1770s with the impending collapse of the royal government.

    This series consists of the registrations of land titles which were authorized by the Quitrent Act of 1731 to serve a dual purpose: 1) validating land grants made by the Lords Proprietors, and 2) establishing a more efficient system of collecting quitrents. The documentation provided by the landowner to the Auditor General's office could be either recorded in full or in an abstract, called a "memorial." The full recordings are contained in volumes 1, 2, and 3 of the original series and volumes 1, the first 251 pages of volume 2, and volume 4 of the copy series. Eventually both forms became known as memorials.

    Most of the documents are exact copies or abstracts of grants, but also included are plats and certificates of survey, deeds of gift, leases and releases, renunciations of dower, and wills. The copies of plats from the proprietary period are particularly valuable because few other plats from that period survive. Information contained in the original volumes and a copy set of the volumes completed in 1821 includes names of the memorialist, persons associated with the title, surrounding landowners, and surveyors; descriptions of the property; and dates of recording. The last portion of volume 14 of the copy series also includes certificates for town lots in Beaufort registered by the Surveyor General between 1743 and 1774 for the purpose of enforcing an act of 1740 that required the collection of fines on unimproved lots in Beaufort.", South Carolina Department of Archives and History, 8301 Parklane Road, Columbia, South Carolina, USA.

(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.10
