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.

Migration*circa 1832Eleazer Galloway; Henry County, Alabama, USA; Citation states that Eleazer came to Henry Co in 1832 from NE South Carolina where the Little Lynches Creek and Lynches Creek merge.

William's petition asks the court to " ... require Roger Parish to show cause why he should not make final settlement ..."

On 22 April, the court ordered Roger Parrish to appear before the court to show cause why he does not make final settlement.10 
(Witness) Estate20 July 1857Edward Parrish; Henry County, Alabama, USA; the Henry County Probate Court ordered Roger Parrish to appear before the court to show cause why his letters of administration for the estate of Edward Parrish should not be revoked, noting that Roger has treated the court's prior orders "with silent contempt" and that he has as yet made no final settlement of the estate after three years.10

LegalJanuary 1859Eleazer Galloway; Alabama Supreme Court, Montgomery, Montgomery, Alabama, USA; Roger Parrish vs. Eleazer Galloway:
In a case before the Alabama Supreme Court, January Term 1859, Roger Parrish, identified as brother of Anna Parrish and administrator of her estate, filed an appeal from the Chancery Court of Henry County. The appeal dealt with whether Anna, who had inherited slaves on her father Edward's death, owned the slaves outright and whether she had authority to do so when she later deeded the slaves to Eleazer Galloway. Eleazer then released his interest in the slaves to William Parrish. The Henry County Chancery Court ruled that Anna did own the slaves outright. Roger Parrish contested this ruling to the Supreme Court. The summary of this case identifies relationships between the parties:

"Eleazar Galloway" was identified as the original complainant in Henry County court;
"William Parish and Roger Parish, ... were the brothers of the complainant's wife";
"Anna Parish, deceased, who was a sister of the complainant's wife";
"The defendant Roger Parish ... administrator of Edward Parish, deceased, who was the father of said Anna, William, and himself ..."

(Witness) Estate15 February 1854Edward Parrish; Henry County, Alabama, USA; Roger Parrish applied to the Henry County Probate Court for letters of administration on the estate of his father Edward Parrish, stating that Edward's will bequeathed certain property to his daughter Arny Parrish for her lifetime, then the property to be equally divided between the heirs of Edward Parrish. With Arny having died, and the original administrator of Edward's estate no longer living, the court appointed Roger as administrator. [Note: The courts' interpretation of the will ultimately differed from Roger's assertions in his application.]7 
(Witness) Estate27 February 1854Edward Parrish; Henry County, Alabama, USA; Edward Parrish's daughter Anna having died [she the sole beneficiary of his assets on his death in 1822], the Henry County Probate Court appointed John A. Wood, Rozier Brannon, and Adam Huggins as appraisers of the property belong to the estate of Edward Parrish.7 
(Witness) Estate16 October 1854Edward Parrish; Henry County, Alabama, USA; John A. Wood, Rosier Brannon and Adam B. Huggins appraised the remaining estate of Edward Parrish, listing:
-one mulatto boy named Samuel $900.
-one negro woman named Milbury and child girl Dice $800.7 
(Witness) Estate16 April 1856Edward Parrish; Henry County, Alabama, USA; William Parrish petitioned the Henry County Probate Court: " ... that he is an heir of Edward Parrish, deceased, and that Roger Parrish sometime in the year 1854 took out letters of administration on the estate of Edward Parrish ... and that as administrator Roger Parrish has taken possession of the property of said estate and as your petitioner is informed and believes is applying said property to his own use..." William's petition asks the court to " ... require Roger Parish to show cause why he should not make final settlement ..."

On 22 April, the court ordered Roger Parrish to appear before the court to show cause why he does not make final settlement.7 
(Witness) Estate20 July 1857Edward Parrish; Henry County, Alabama, USA; the Henry County Probate Court ordered Roger Parrish to appear before the court to show cause why his letters of administration for the estate of Edward Parrish should not be revoked, noting that Roger has treated the court's prior orders "with silent contempt" and that he has as yet made no final settlement of the estate after three years.7 
(Witness) LegalJanuary 1859Eleazer Galloway, Roger Parrish; Alabama Supreme Court, Montgomery, Montgomery, Alabama, USA; Roger Parrish vs. Eleazer Galloway:
In a case before the Alabama Supreme Court, January Term 1859, Roger Parrish, identified as brother of Anna Parrish and administrator of her estate, filed an appeal from the Chancery Court of Henry County. The appeal dealt with whether Anna, who had inherited slaves on her father Edward's death, owned the slaves outright and whether she had authority to do so when she later deeded the slaves to Eleazer Galloway. Eleazer then released his interest in the slaves to William Parrish. The Henry County Chancery Court ruled that Anna did own the slaves outright. Roger Parrish contested this ruling to the Supreme Court. The summary of this case identifies relationships between the parties:

"Eleazar Galloway" was identified as the original complainant in Henry County court;
"William Parish and Roger Parish, ... were the brothers of the complainant's wife";
"Anna Parish, deceased, who was a sister of the complainant's wife";
"The defendant Roger Parish ... administrator of Edward Parish, deceased, who was the father of said Anna, William, and himself ..."

See the exhibits for actual text of the case summary.1
