Butler $100. (this Butler later appeared in the estate of Eleazer Galloway, Edward's son-in-law)3 
(Witness) Estate13 June 1835Burr J. Parrish; Henry County, Alabama, USA; administrators James Ward, Henry Domony, applied $1000 bond. Notes due to the estate included names Zach Parrish, James Parrish, Elias Parrish. An inventory dated 18 July 1835 listed personal property sold and included names Elias Parrish, John Parrish, James Parrish, Arny Parrish (horse colt and household items), Rosier Brannon (saddle and several tools), Zachariah Parrish.5 
Census*2 November 1850AL 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.6 
Resident: William E. Galloway
Resident: Jane (?)
Resident: James Eleazor Galloway
Death*circa 1854Henry County, Alabama, USA7

Davis ...

Roger then stated in a further application to the court that Arney Parrish left no children, and that the estate had no value except household furniture that he desired to sell to defray funeral expenses.7

My ResearchNote*Anzilla Galloway named her daughter Lydia Leaty Brannon and she was known by Leaty according to estate papers of Rosier Brannon and census records. 
JournalEleazer Galloway; 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.
