General Notes (Husband)

Shadrick "Shack" Noah Gallion/Galyean apparently w a s b o r n in Grayson County, Virginia. He also lived i n Su rr y Co un ty, North Carolina in abeautiful valley tha t wa s "a ir-co ndi tioned " by the wind blowing over a hig h mou ntai n nea r hi s farm land. He raised tobacco and p ossib l y c o rn o n th e land. Nearby is a town named Low e Ga p becaus e of th e man y Lowes in the area . There ar e sti ll Galyea ns in Su rry Co unty to this day.

He married first, Mahalia Rector and second, Rutha K . L o w e . He had a total of 21 children from both marr iag e s . Ru tha was much younger thanS hadrick. Apparent l y h e or iginal ly spelled his surname as GALLION and fo r s om e unkno wn reas on changed it to GALYEAN prior to mo vin g t o Arkansa s.

Near the first of September, 1859, the Shadrick Galy e a n a n d David Edwards families left their Surry County , N or th C ar olina homes in ox wagons and some horse draw n wa gon s, fo r B enton County, Arkansas. They arrived nea r th e clo se o f Nove mber of the same year, having been o n th e trai l fo r about t hree months. The trip was diffi cul t and th e wint er was com ing on - they never travele d o n Sunday . Wild ga me and fire wood were prepared on Sa turd ay and t he Lord ' s Day would b e quietly observed b y som e spring o r river.

Shadrick settled in the Hiwasse area. Hiwasse is ve r y r u r al to this day. The main crop in Hiwasse wa s ap pl e s . I have a photocopy of anold picture of Shadr ick a n d Ru th a. Rutha looks relatively young and has he r hai r u p in t h e style of the day. Shadrick appears t o have c atar acts o n h is eyes which appear white in th e photo. H e ha s long g re y hair and a long grey bear d and has a c ane . Judging f ro m the clothing I suspect t he photograp h wa s taken in th e la te 1860's in Arkansas.

Apparently Shadrick was part Cherokee Indian as was h i s s e c ond wife, Ruth(a). Two of his sons from his marr ia g e t o Ma halia served under the command of Stand Wati e w h o form ed th e Confed e rate 2nd Cherokee Mountedleas t ha l f Cherok ee . I don't think Mahalia was Cherokee be caus e h er surnam e w as Rector and there was a large colo ny (G erma nnia) in t he a rea.It is more likely that her h eritag e wa s German a s wer e the other Rectors of the col ony an d area.

(Medical):Rutha called it the Dead Palsy or something s i m i l ar.
