moody/galloway connection

Surnames: moody, galloway
I have been researching my father's paternal line, but have hit a "brick wall". My great-grandfather's name is David Galloway-all I know was that he was born in Tennessee in 1866, and lived in Chattanooga from 1900 until his death in 1935. I did find on the 1880 census that there was a David Galloway living with the Fain Moody family in the 7th District in Sullivan County (age and year of birth correspond to the YOB of my great- grandfather- it's a long shot). Does anyone have information on either the Moody or Galloway family? Thanks!

I had some Blackmore's that married some Galloway girls in Sullivan Co. They are a generation back from David. Don't know much about the Galloways but my Blackmore went with their family to Lincoln Co. and Callaway Co. MO. I know some other families went there also and it was about the time David was born.

I happened upon your posting regarding Fain Moody. I have not pursued him as he is not a direct ancestor. He is my GG Uncle (I love the ability of databases to figure out relationships). His father, Adam Stokes Moody, is my GGG Grandfather. His brother, George, is by GG Grandfather.

I have Thomas Fain Moody born 1844 in Tennessee. I do not have a date of death. I have him married to Mary Cartwright Galloway, born 1840. I do not have a date of death. The Calloway children apparently are hers from a previous marriage. I have no records of her previous marriage.

It is possible that Sullivan County may have those marriage records. All pre-Civil War records for Sullivan County, except for tax records, were destroyed when the Union Army burned the courthouse. the tax records were saved because the county assessor had them in his basement for fear that the courthouse would be burned.

I hope this helps. Good hunting! And, if you turn up anything, please let me know.

Following is the data I have collected from the US Census on Thomas Fain.

1850 United States Census cites age as 6, making birth year 1844. 1860 United States Census cits age at 15, making birth year 1845.

1880 United States Census lists age as 37, making birth year 1843.
