On August 6, 1862 at Champion, Jefferson County, New York the 21-year-old Francis M. Galloway would enlist in Company D, 10th New York Heavy Artillery Regiment. Before mustering out of service on June 23, 1865 at Petersburg, Virginia he would participate in the following battles. The Battle at Cold Harbor, Virginia on June 5, 1864. The siege of Petersburg from June 9 through August 1, 1864. The 10th NY HA was in action on the 9, 14, 15, 16, 18, 24, 25, 27, 30 of June, 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 16, 20, 24, 31, of July and August 1, 1864. The Battle of Cedar Creek, Virginia on October 19, 1864. The first battle at Bermuda Hundred, Virginia on January 23, 1865 and last battle at Bermuda Hundred, Virginia on Aril 2, 1865. He would receive a soldiers pension for his service with Company D, 10th New York Heavy Artillery Regiment from January 4, 1890 until his death, certificate #519815 New York. On July 29, 1862 at Rutland, New York (CAN NOT FIND ON TODAYS MAPS) 18 year old John M. Galloway enlisted as a private in the same Company D, 10th New York Heavy Artillery Regiment. While I can not prove he was any relation to Francis M. Galloway it is sure a coincidence. However on January 4, 1864 at Deer Park, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York David A. Galloway, the 20-year-old brother of Francis M. Galloway, did enlist as private in Company U, 10th New York Heavy Artillery Regiment. It appears that Company U was a transfer company for on that same day, January 4, 1864, in New York City David A. Galloway was transferred to Company U, 16th New York Heavy Artillery Regiment. He was then transferred to Company C, 16th New York Heavy Artillery Regiment and participated also in the siege of Petersburg from June 9 through August 1, 1864. He was discharged at Smithville, North Carolina Hospital on June 16, 1865. David A. Galloway drew a soldiers pension for his service with Company C, 16th New York Heavy Artillery Regiment form February 10, 1883, certificate #884458 New York, until his death February 1917. His widow, Mary E. Galloway, would then draw the widow's pension from March 9, 1917, certificate # 826847 New York, until her death in 1931.
