My GGG-Grandfather is Robert M [McClure] Galloway born 1807 in KY [per census records].In 1827, Robert married Sarah Williams [b. 1808 in TN] in Hamilton County, IL. As soon as they married, they lived the rest of their lives in Franklin / Perry County, IL.First son was named Milton Galloway b. 1827 in Franklin County, IL.
It seems likely that Robert and/or Sarah had family in Southern Illinois but so far no luck in finding any connections.
I have spent several years trying to locate parents and siblings of both Robert and Sarah.Family lore says that Robert moved to Southern Illinois with two brothers with the two brothers moving 'north'.Some family info says one brother was a surveyor and the other owned a manufacturing company.
Any leads or information would be greatly appreciated.
