Galloway Family Reunion 

28 September 1905- Howell County Gazette

Descendants of Mrs. Rhoda Galloway Celebrate…. 
{daughter of Daniel Stonecipher and Obedience Brasel}

Had a Large Picnic Dinner Saturday At Home of J.R. Galloway In This City 

The Galloway family, one of the oldest and largest families of Southern Missouri, held a reunion at the home of J.R. Galloway on West Broadway, in this city, Saturday. There were over 100 of the relatives present of Mrs. Rhoda Galloway, the oldest member of this family. This reunion was held to celebrate the 83rd. birthday of Mrs. Galloway. Early in the day relatives of this good old lady began gathering, for they came from all parts of the country. By the time the noon hour had arrived the house and yard were full of the young and older generation. Each family came with well filled baskets and a big dinner was spread on the lawn in the beautiful yard and the celebration in fact was an old fashioned picnic dinner. There was everything good to eat and all did ample justice to the repast. Just before the feast began a group picture of the gathering was taken. 

Mrs. Rhoda Galloway, in who=92s honor the celebration was held, came to Howell County with her late husband, G.W. Galloway, in 1857. They came overland from East Tennessee, for in those days there were no railroads in this section. They located on a farm one mile northwest of town, where the elder Mr. Galloway passed away several years ago. 

G.W. Galloway was widely known throughout this section as a minister of the Primitive Baptist church.When the Civil War broke out he enlisted under General McBride and was made a captain. He fought in the battle of Wilson’s Creek and two of his sons, Dan and Charles, were in the same battle. His brother, Uncle Jesse Galloway, was also in the same conflict, but fought in the Union army. Shortly afterwards G.W. Galloway was taken a prisoner and with others sent to St. Louis. He was treated as an ordinary prisoner of war, but the other prisoners soon learned that he was a man of great heart. Every Sabbath he preached the gospel to them and they soon learned to love him. Daily the women of St. Louis brought food to the prisoners, and Mr. Galloway often divided his share with a sick prisoner who was in more need of delicacies than he himself. The following year he was exchanged and finally returned to his family to live the remainder of his days in peace. 

Among the older persons present were Uncle Sam Galloway, who resides on Gunter’s Valley and is in his 80th. year, and Mrs. M.E. Lasater, of this city. Both are among the early settlers of Howell county, and have a long list of descendants. This is the first time for many years that the Galloway’s have been together. All of the eight sons and daughters of Mrs. Rhoda Galloway were present and it was a source of much happiness to her to see them together once more. Mrs. Galloway is still hale and hearty and makes her home in this city with her daughter, Miss Lizzie Galloway, who cares for her. The many friends of this estimable family hope that she shall remain on earth for many more years and live to enjoy other birthday celebrations equally as happy as the one of last Saturday.

This is a photograph which was in the possession of my grandfather, Balaam “Eugene” Lewallen (b. 1871/1872 in TN – d. 1952 in WV). The information I have has been provided by his children, including my mother, Gertrude Lewallen Morris Baker.


ROBERT “Bob” Lewallen and wife MARTHA ANN Morris Lewallen had six children. I know the names of five of them, as follows: Balaam Eugene (who was born circa 1872, and married Ida Bell Miller, daughter of Jacob H. B. Miller and Martha Jane Russell Miller of Virginia); Robert (who died by drowning while in the Navy); George (whose two children, Clyde and Zollie, both taught school in Oneida); Sarah; and Anna. The other child may have been Nancy, but I am not sure.

ROBERT was a son of Andrew Russell “Russ” Lewallen II and Perlisca Ann “Phoebe” Davis who was born around 1927. Robert’s parents, Andrew Russell Lewallen and Perliscia (1825/27-1885), married November 15, 1846, in Morgan County, TN. In addition to Robert, they had the following children: Frank (who fathered twin babies which are buried in the Wolf Creek Cemetery); George Todd (half-brother, mother was Hannah Todd, who married Salina Morris, and when Salina died he married Louisa Miller and they had nine children – Josie, Hattie, Monroe, Laura, Elmer, Golda, Maud, Gladys, and Clifford); Andrew F., Lucinda M. (or “Cindy” who married Thomas Russell); John F., Charlotte J., Sarah E., William Bluford (who married Sarah Smith with whom he had four sons and two daughters); Charles Russell (who married first Amelia Smith who died giving birth to twins, and later Emma Galloway); Lottie (who married William C. Russell or “Bill” and had four children, Anna Russell Hable, Julia, Abby, and Hew); and Winfield Esau called “Winks”, who married Emma Duncan, had two daughters named May and Florence, and a son named Charles. Winks died young of typhoid fever and his family then moved away) .

MARTHA was born to Willis Morris and Nancy Hanks in 1841 in Sunbright, TN. She died on April 21, 1911, in Modesto, CA. Her siblings were John Richard, Salina Dove, Nancy Green, Thomas Asbury, Willis Turner, Pleasant Miller, Mary Jane, and Joseph Smith.

I would be most grateful to have any additional information regarding the family. Also, if anyone would like to correct any of the information I have, please be kind enough to do so. Thank you!

Obituary for M.M. Justice

M.M. Justice of Coalfield died April 11,, 1951 at the age of 100 years, nine months and fifteen days. He was probably the oldest man in East Tennessee.  He was the son of Esquire Justice and Sally Russell Justice. He was married to Telethia Caroline Brummitt in the year 1871 and was the father of the following children: Mrs. Florence Cheek of Harriman, Mrs. Serelda Sisson of Oliver Springs, Judge J.H. Justice of Wartburg; Mrs. Arpie Jackson of Coalfield and three children who died in infancy.Mr. Justice joined the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in early life. He was a great admirer of Abraham Lincoln and went to the election with his father when Lincoln ran doe president. He worked on the public roads of Morgan County from the time he was 18 years of age until he was 50 years old, this being a legal requirement at that time. Mr. Justice was strictly sober and had a supreme hatred for strong drinks.  He was loyal to his family and friends and especially to his God.  He believed in law and order and stood strictly by his convictions until the day of his departure. He probably had more knowledge of the early history of Morgan and Anderson Counties than any man living in recent years.  He could readily tell you the boundaries of the original tracts of land in this county.  Mr. Justice was a pioneer of the old school and was always ready to give admonition and advice to the rising generation, especially if he thought they were taking the wrong course. He was known for his knowledge of the Bible and made it a life-long study. He was a great believer in honesty and truthfulness and tried in every way and truthfulness and tried in every way possible to impress upon his family and friends the great worth of practicing such virtues. Mr Justice spent his entire life in Morgan County.Funeral services were held at the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church on April 13th at 11:00 A.M. with Rev. David McGlothin and Rev. Williams officiating and was laid to rest in the Estes Cemetery. Sharp’s of Oliver Springs in charge.  [Morgan County News, 4-19-1951]

-Obituary for Telitha Caroline Brummitt Justice

Mrs. Justice was born May 18, 1846, in Anderson County, Tennessee near the little station known as Marlow, in that county; her maiden name was Telitha Caroline Brummitt.  Her father’s names was James Brummitt and her mother’s name was Serelda Brown Brummitt.
Mrs. Justice leaves to mourn her loss her husband, M.M. Justice, who is in his 79th  year, and the following children:  Mrs. Florence Cheek of  Coal Hill, Mrs. R.A. Sisson of Oliver Springs, Mrs. Arpie Jackson of Coalfield, Judge S.H. Justice of Wartburg, and Horace Justice of Coalfield and three infant children who died in early life, making eight children born to this union.  She is also survived by sixteen grand-children and twenty great-grandchildren, and one brother, the Rev. W.R. Brummitt of Oliver Springs; and one sister, Mrs. Mary A. Freybarger, living at Hamilton, Ohio.  Mrs. Justice was 13 years of age when the war between the North and the South was declared, and many times during her life, while in a reminiscent mood, she would tell of the many struggles and trials that she had undergone during that war.  In Feb. 1862, her father was shot and killed through a crack in the door during the early part of the night, after a hard days work clearing a new ground, while he had one of his younger children in his arms.  At the report of the gun the father of Mrs. Justice dropped the child from his arms and fell with his hands in the fire.  There being no one in the house at this time, except the father of Mrs. Justice, her mother, who was very ill and confined to her bed; the little child and Mrs. Justice, who was then only 13 years of age.  After the fatal shot had been fired, Mrs. Justice locked her arms under the arms of her dead father, pulling him out of the fire and straightening out his lifeless body on the floor.  At this time the mother of Mrs. Justice thought in all probability that their house was surrounded by enemies, so she ordered that the light be extinguished and the fire covered up until an investigation could be made and the neighbors notified.  In this condition, Mrs. Justice with her sick mother in bed kept a vigilant watch through the night while her father lay a lifeless corps on the floor before them.
During the year 1862, while the war between the states was still raging, Mrs. Justice’s older brother Wiley Brummitt, had enlisted in the Union Army and was stationed at Fishing Creek, Ky., and while there got a permit or furlough to visit his wife, mother and sisters in Anderson County, Tenn.  He came home and stayed a few days and while returning back to his regiment across the mountain and down New River, he was encountered by a bunch of guerillas, whose purpose was to loot, steal and kill and the ran Mr. Brummitt into the river and shot him in the face; then it was that Mrs. Justice, though a girl in her early teens, was again called to a trying ordeal.  She walked from Anderson County by way of Blowing Springs, where Windrock mines are now situated, but arrived after her brother had been buried in the old White Grave Yard in the 10th district of Anderson County on New River.  She met her duties boldly, and got her brother’s haver sack, as she always called it, his shot pouch and army rifle, after which she wended her way back across the mountain to her old home near Marlow.
She had a brother names Gilbert Brummitt, who died at Somerset, Ky., while serving in the Union Army.  She had another brother names Moses Brummitt, who also was a soldier in the Union Army, who was captured by the Confederate soldiers and imprisoned on Belle Isle, who died there during that great struggle.  W.R. Brummitt who is now living at Oliver Springs, served in the Union Army, 3 years, 7 months and 17 days, and was honorable discharged.  He is now in this 85th year.  Mrs. Justice had a sister by the name of Martha Brummitt, who married one Daniel Jones of Morgan County; this sister died in Roane County many years ago.  She had two younger brothers, namely, James and Rufus, who were not old enough to enlist in the army, both have been dead several years.
Mrs. Justice was a member of the Baptist Church for near 60 years; she was a strong believer in the Baptist faith, but first of all she believed in God.  She loved her family and her friends and was ever ready to speak a good word to those in trouble.  She was married to M.M. Justice, Nov. 26, 1871 by Squire Thos. Davis, who was one of the old pioneers of this county.
Mrs. Justice used to tell of the many hardships and privations that she and the other members of her family were subjected to during the Civil War, and on one occasion, she told of her mother owning a find young mare, and while the Confederate soldiers were passing through the country, she bridled and led this young mare away from the main road out into the forest and kept her there all night for fear she would be taken away from them.  She said that this young mare could hear the other horses passing the road and would attempt to squeal or nicker to them, as she called it, and at each time she would take her bonnet and wrap it around the mare’s mouth and nostrils to keep the soldiers who were passing the road from hearing the squeal of the animal.
Mrs Justice had many friends and no enemies in so far as we know, and will be long remembered and never forgotten.[Morgan County News, December 13, 1928]
