According to verbal information passed down through my father and his sister who were born in 1900 Joplin, Missouri a.k.a. the heart of the Ozarks; my ggggrandfather, James Galloway, came to York County, PA from Scotland around 1760 and was part of the McFarlane Clan. The family moved to Barren County, KY via the Cumberland Pass just prior to 1800 where they lived until moving once again to Hancock County, IL in 1833. James died in Barren County, KY and my gggrandfather, Alexander, died in Hancock, County, IL. My ggrandfather, William Alexander was born in Barren County, KY in 1833 just months before the family relocated to Hancock County, IL. William Alexander moved to the Joplin area around 1870 and died there in 1923. My grandfather, my father, and I were all born in the Joplin, Missouri area.
