Adjacent to Rosier Branan household so this suggests that this Melvin is Eleazer's son. If so, listed age may be wrong since this age would make him the oldest son and I don't believe that is correct. And, the Melvin Galloway in the 1850 census is clearly Eleazer's son based on Eleazer estate records. The children listed in that census, and listed wife, are not in this household in 1840.

If this is the same Peter Galloway, then he died in Indiana after 1857. 
Birth*before 17751 
Military*say 1776American Revolution, Continental Army, Francis Marion's Brigade, South Carolina, USA; "Peter Galloway", non-commissioned officer or private in the Revolutionary War||It's not confirmed that this Peter Galloway is the same as the one appearing in the census of 1790 in Lancaster County, but seems probable since Marion's Brigade was raised and operated in eastern SC for the most part. The Gregg reference has Marion raiding and fighting in 1780 in the Lynches Creek area, citing for example the Battle of Port's Ferry.3,4 
(Witness) MilitaryJuly 1780William Galloway; American Revolution, South Carolina Militia Volunteers, Hanging Rock, Camden District, South Carolina, USA; "William Galloway, 20 days in the Cavalry under Major Robert Crawford at Hanging Rock". Peter and William Galloway both served with Robert Crawford. Hanging Rock Creek merges with Little Lynches Creek about 5 miles SE of Kershaw.5 
Military4 August 1780American Revolution, South Carolina Militia Volunteers, Lancaster County, South Carolina, USA; "Peter Galloway ... paid for 40 days (25 June to Aug 4) in the cavalry under Capt George Dunlap and General Sumter at Hanging Rock".

It seems likely that the Lancaster County Peter Galloway of 1790 is the one with this Revolutionary War service record because of his service record links to William Galloway #1730, and his duty in the Lancaster/Kershaw areas.

Hanging Rock is about 23 miles north of Camden. On August 1 General Thomas Sumter's militia staged an unsuccessful attack on British forces in this area, and there was another engagement on August 6. These involved forces of a few hundred on either side. Casualties were high, particularly on the British side.6 
Comment*say 1781Alexander Galloway; Cheraws District, South Carolina, USA; Alexander and Peter Galloway both served with George Dunlap (Alexander - Col Dunlap; Peter - Capt Dunlap)7 
Military9 March 1781American Revolution, South Carolina Militia Volunteers, South Carolina, USA; 16 February to March 9: "21 days in the cavalry under Lt Col Henry Hamilton & Lt James Craig under Gen Sumter"6 
MilitaryJanuary 1783American Revolution, South Carolina Militia Volunteers, South Carolina, USA; 57 days with wagon and team on duty at the Continental Station in Kershaw6 
Event7 February 1784South Carolina, USA; paid for military service above6 
Cen-Head*1790SC Lancaster Co Census 1790; Lancaster County, South Carolina, USA; "Petter Galaway", free white male, with 1 male under 16 and 1 female; lived next to household of William Galloway, ID#17308
