Notes for MILFORD GALLOWAY: Information copied at the public library in Palmyra, Wayne County, New York during September 1999. Milford Galloway married Lizzie Tanner December 8, 1864 at the residence of the bride's father A. Tanner. Milford Galloway a resident of Palmyra; buys a home on Jackson Street of William H. Bush. His daughter is Mrs. E. S. Stacey; another daughter is Mrs. W. H. Dixon. Buys the Tanner farm 3 miles south of Palmyra December 30, 1864. New York during September 1999, I must make the following notation to the notes of Milford Galloway. There was a letter written in 1929 by Frederick Bentley that includes a sentence that makes reference to a picture of Lt. James Galloway and son carting part of the "Second Great Chain" being carted to West Point. Our first stop at Newburgh was the headquarters of George Washington to find out what was known about the picture mentioned in the 1929 letter. I will not get into the personality of the museum curator other than he will not forget me either. He had been the curator there for the last twenty years and said, "the picture had caused him much distress." It seems that many people had heard of the drawing and wanted to see it, me included. He also said, "the picture was nothing more than an amateurish charcoal drawing by a man from Palmyra, New York." He retrieved the folder that contained a copy of the picture and several other sheets of information sent in over the years. Milford Galloway, 1838-1913 of Palmyra, appears to have been the artist that sent the drawing along with a photograph of himself. I am afraid that the description of the drawing by the curator was pretty accurate. Palmyra Journal January 23, 1913 reads: Milford Galloway, one of Palmyra's oldest and best-known residents, died Saturday morning last, January 18, 1913, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. E. S.
