The Galloways: Pioneers, Planters & Patriots
This book traces the author’s branch of the Galloway family back almost four centuries, starting with their Scottish homeland and the first Galloways’ arrival in Virginia in the 1620’s. They then joined a Quaker settlement in Maryland, where they thrived, and from where they spread out, following the frontier to Baltimore, Pennsylvania, and then Kentucky. The story is based on extensive research and is well documented throughout, with events put into historical context. The many Galloways who emerge include Ann, a leading Quaker minister in the 1670’s; Samuel, a wealthy planter who was famous for his racing stables; James, a “long hunter” in the Kentucky wilderness, who served with General Washington; Joseph, a Philadelphian who became America’s leading Loyalist; Elihu, a rifleman in the War of 1812; and Emerson, a career officer who served in both World Wars.
