an apprentice reaper with 11+ years remaining to his service.
Possible parents for John are Thomas and Mary.   Any Galloways found in New York City prior to 1735 are possibly related, as the entire population of the city was only about 9,000.
(6500 in 1716)
"Ava Galloway, (1877- 1972) leaves this record, written near the time ofher death, of a recollection about her 5th gr. grandfather. Most of her memories apparently came from
an old Galloway bible, since lost. Her narrative describes John Galloway as the second of two sons of "a sea faring man fi'om Scotland." The following is her actual text. "The
fIrst of our Galloway family came from Scotland about 1700. Settled in New Amsterdam, New York. He was a seafaring man and was drowned. He was married and
left two sons, one John and the other name not known".

Adriaen Jansen Konick and Lysbeth Damen, who had arrived in New Netherlands in 1663 on de Bonte Koe (The Spotted Cow), a slaver carrying 86 passengers from Holland. They had been
married 15 March 1650 in Well (Gelderland) .Adriaen, alias Capper (ca 1630-), was the son of Jan Gysbertsen Coninck and Merreke Gierlincx of Well. Lysbeth was from Herpt in North Brabant.
John Galloway was probably the older brother of Elizabeth Galloway, the first wife of David Smith (15 April 1701-1787), who came to Orange County in 1747 from Brookhaven, Long Island,
and built a mill on the pond of what would become Monroe Village."
