Though the greatgrandson of William John Galloway/John William Galloway was in the state of IL...Coles is believed J.W. died in IN around 1820 or he may never have left KY. His son David Green born Greensburg Green Co KY was married OH Co KY in 1809. John William/William John definitely is elusive, but I do not think he is from  John Charles. Thank you for trying to help me make a connection.

My great, great grandmother, Mary Polly Meacham(born Feb. 17, 1803) married  John Charles Galloway, Born January 17, 1798 in Washington Township, Erie,  Penn. He died July 5, 1837 in LaSalle Co. Illinois. I have John Charles  Galloway's father as Samuel and mother as Eleanor Reeder or Reader. They had 7 children,(that we know of) Eleanor Galloway, (born September 18, 1824)Charles Wesley Galloway,(August 13, 1826) Mary Williams Galloway, (July 17, 1828)George Galloway,(January 12, 1830) Harriet Galloway.(October 11, 1831) Rosanna Galloway(Oct.14, 1834) and Silvester (August 21,1837) Galloway. When John Charles Galloway died, my great great grandmother married my great great grandfather, John Faylor also in Lasalle Co, Ill. on Feb. 21, 1839. They had three children, Josiah Faylor, Lydia Faylor and Columbus Faylor, Josiah Faylor was my great grandfather. I am sure there must be a connection...perhaps your John W. Galloway is the nephew of Samuel Galloway and Eleanor Reeder. I am not sure...does the W. stand for Wesley because this name was used after in the Galloway family. Also, it could be that he might after all be a son of John Charles Galloway, because it seems that 26 was a little late to have a first child in those days....perhaps John Charles had already buried one wife before he married Mary Polly Meacham. Also, the Faylors and the Galloways after that and perhaps during the 1830's were Mormans. Mary Polly Meacham Galloway Faylor, with many of her Galloway children and her Faylor children lived in Navuoo...the original Mormon settlement in Illinois. I have seen the census notes.

Levi JUELL Rev. [Parents] was born 5 Feb 1769 in Weare, Hillsborough, Nh and was christened 23 Feb 1769 in Weare, Hillsborough, Nh. He died 1853 in Cincinnati, Hamilton, Oh. Levi married Judith TEWKESBURY on 13 Aug 1790 in Sandwich, Carroll, Nh.

BIRTH-MARR-DEATH: Record of Alta B. Coleman or Jewell

FGR states there are five more children, dates and sexes unknown (11 total). Mrs. Anna S. King states that Levi and all siblings were born in Sandwich, NH.

Judith TEWKESBURY [Parents] was born 24 Dec 1766 in Weare, Hillsborough, Nh. She died in Fulton, , Illinois and was buried in Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio. Judith married Levi JUELL Rev. on 13 Aug 1790 in Sandwich, Carroll, Nh.or Tuxbury, also born at Amesbury, Essex, MA.

Lynus E. Bemus & Martha Amelia Juell (Jewell) (4G Grandparents)

Found this on the Nixon Family Website:

Martha Amelia Jewell (Juell) was born 23 January 1808 in Rome, Kennebec Co., Maine, to Rev. Levi Jewell and Judith Tewksbury (Tuxbury). We believe she was the eleventh child in this family. Rev. Jewell apparently traveled from one assignment to another in his church work and we find record of brothers and sisters of Martha Amelia being born in Hew Hampshire as well as in Maine. Next, we find the family in Illinois. Whether they joined the L.D.S. Church in some other area and then moved to Illinois or joined after arriving, we do not know. One record indicates that Martha Amelia Jewell may have been baptized before the Church was organized on April 6, 1830. If this is correct, she would have been one of the few, and would have had to be rebaptized. Records show that she was rebaptized in June 1833.

Lynus (Linas) Bemus was born 13 Feb 1805 is Ashtabula, Ashtabula Co., Ohio. He was the son of Samuel Bemus and Sarah. We have very little information about this family but we do know that Lynas moved to Lewiston, Fulton Co,. Illinois about or before 1827. We find that 25 Feb 1827, he married Martha Amelia Jewell, as recorded in Early Marriages of Fulton County, Illinois.

This union was blessed with the following ten children. They were Ira, Mary Judith Elizabeth, William Myron, George McNeil, Harvey Franklin, Francis Marion, Harriet Amelia, Emily Matilda and the twins Norman and Norris.

Lynas was a farmer by trade, but hearing of the Gold in California, he wanted to try his luck and, taking his family, he started west to seek his fortune. (The date of journey and arrival in Utah is not known and is another item for research.)

After arriving is Utah, Martha Amelia, was faithful member of the L.D.S. Church and she wanted to stay with the Saints rather than to seek the gold so many were after at that time, and rather than see her hurt, they stayed in Utah, settleing in Manti, Sanpete Co., Utah.

Lynus was an honorable man. It has been said of him that he was happy that he had listened to his wife and stayed in Utah with the Saints. Due to ill health, his life was not long and records indicate that he died 9 April 1858. Shortly before that, however, records indicate that he was baptized into the L.D.S. Church on 17 March 1858.

After the death of her husband, Lynus, Martha Amelia married again on 31 Dec 1859 to Isaac Huff Losee and was sealed to him the same day in the Endowment House. After a long and faithful life of service to her family and Church, Martha Amelia Jewell Bemus Losee died in Manti, Sanpete Co., Utah 12 Sept 1892 at the age of 84.
Linus Bemus was born 13 Feb 1805 in Conneaut, Ashtabula, Oh. He died 9 Apr 1858 in Manti, Sanpete, Ut from Consumption and was buried Apr 1858 in Manti, Sanpete, Ut. Lynes married Martha Amelia JUELL on 25 Feb 1827 in , Fulton, Il.

or Linas, or Beemus or Beamus

Rebaptized 24 Oct 1875

Martha was a convert to the Mormon Church but her husband never did join. Shortly before his death, he expressed a desire to be baptized but died before it could be done. When they came west, Lyness wanted to continue on to the gold fields but his wife wanted to stay in Manti , and he was never sorry that he stayed. Martha remained an active member of the church and Lyness got along well with everyone. They built a good home and had the love and respect of their children and everyone in the community.

Lynus/Linus was a farmer by trade, but hearing of the gold in California he wanted to try his luck. They came across the plains with a company bound for the gold fields in the early 1850s. Martha, being the only member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the family, persuaded him to stay in Utah.

They settled in Manti, Ut in 1854, Records show that he was baptized in March 1858, & died 3 weeks later. Martha continued to live in Manti for another 34 yrs & died there at the age of 85.
No headstone or marker for Martha. Her grave would be to the left of her daughters headstone which is shone here. ----

Johnathan Hoopes & Rebecca Watts (4G Grandparents)

Cool information on them from this link:

Grandfather Jonathan Hoopes was born in 1788 in Pennsylvania of Quaker parents. He married Rebecca Watts and they were the parents of 12 children. Although his family was prominent (his grandfather and father were in the state legislature and his family owned a considerable amount of land, having been in Pennsylvania since 1683), when Jonathan was 56, he moved his family to the Ohio frontier. There he heard the Restored Gospel and was baptized on January 16, 1834. Jonathan then migrated with the Saints in their various moves and responded to the Prophet Joseph's request (actually a commandment from the Lord) to write his Redress Petition. He owned property in Nauvoo and then crossed the plains to Utah. Jonathan was then called to settle Idaho, where he died at the age of 89 at Weston, Oneida County in 1868.

Grandfather Jonathan Hoopes, Jr. was born in 1935 in Cleveland, Ohio a year after his parents joined the LDS Church. After crossing the plains with his parents' family, Jonathan, at the age of 21, married Mary Ann Baldwin in Provo, Utah in 1856. Mary Ann's grandfather, Caleb Baldwin, was imprisoned with the Prophet Joseph in Liberty Jail and was with him in this prison-temple when he received the revelations now found in D & C Sections 121-123.

Our direct ancestors and their extended families were early Mormon pioneer settlers in Southeastern Idaho, helping to found several colonies there. They endured many hardships and privations, but this served to strengthen them. Many of their progeny still reside in Idaho and have remained true to the faith their fathers have cherished.
More information on the Hoopes family from the same website:
Our Hoopes ancestors came from England. The earliest written record, from about 1375, which exists with anything near our Hoopes surname, is for the name Hooper, which was a Norman-French name for a cloth merchant. At this time nearly all the people living in France and England were Roman Catholic, so we can presume that our ancestors were Catholic, whatever their surname.

In 1533, King Henry VIII wanted to divorce his wife, which was forbidden by the Roman Catholic Pope, so Henry claimed authority for himself and a Protestant Church, the Church of England was born. Henry's son, Edward VI became the next king in and passed many laws which strengthened the Church of England. However, Edward's half-sister, Mary, followed him as queen and she tried to restore England to the Catholic Church. So severe were her laws against heresy or disbelief in Catholic doctrine that she became known as "Bloody Mary." She put to death more than 300 persons, among them Bishop John Hooper. While the similarity of the surnames between the martyr John Hooper may be only coincidental, the widespread religious persecution and upheavel of the time was something that could not be ignored.

When we trace our direct ancestry back as far as we can, we find the surname Howpe for an ancestor who died in 1570. During his lifetime "Bloody Mary" was on the throne and perhaps he changed the spelling of his surname from Hooper or Hoopes to avoid religious persecution. His son's surname was spelled Hoope, but his grandson, our direct grandfather, spelled his name Hoopes. This was Robert Hoopes. Our earliest ancestors, without doubt, faced religious persecution living in these times in England.

Robert Hoopes was christened in the parish church at Skelton-in-Cleveland, in the county of York, on 8 July 1875. The ordinance was performed by a minister of the Church of England, or the Anglican Church as it is also called.

For several generations our Hoopes ancestors lived in a great stone house, which is still standing, at Great Moorsholm and attended the parish church at Skelton-in-Cleveland, which is also still in existence. (The parish records have been microfilmed and are available at LDS Family History Centers worldwide.)

Robert's great grandson, Joshua Hoopes, was married in the parish church at Skelton, to Ann, our grandmother, but she died after giving birth to his four children-although we don't know the date of her death. Joshua married a second wife, Isabel, in 1679, which was also recorded by the Anglican priest.

However, two years before Joshua's marriage to Isabel, in 1677, there is a record stating that "Tobias Hoope, of Skelton, was fined 20 pounds for suffering a Meeting at his House, and 10 shillings for himself and wife being there...for being in the same Meeting, Joshua Hoope (a mis-spelling of our ancestor's name), for himself and Wife, was fined 10 shillings, but being no Quaker, paid down the Money." This is found in the book, Suffering of the Quakers, by Besse.

Beginning in 1647, an Englishman, George Fox, believed that God speaks to men and women-this woman thing was a novel idea, through the Holy Ghost and they didn't need the authority of the state church, because they knew it didn't have any authority from God. When Fox was taken before a magistrate to be prosecuted for his strange beliefs, he quoted a scripture that says that men will "quake" before God. The magistrate mockingly called him a Quaker, and we still know these modest, God-fearing people by this nick name.

From 1683, King Charles II, reigned in England and those whose form of worship did not conform to the prescribed teachings of the Church of England were harshly persecuted. This was also a very difficult time to live in England.

In spite of religious persecution, shortly after his marriage to Isabel, Joshua and his family joined with the Quakers. They were part of the Rowsby Monthly Meeting of Friends, in the North Riding of Yorkshire, for on the 4th day of the 3rd month (May), 1683, Joshua obtained a certificate of good standing from that body.

(Quakers have meetings on Sunday and during the week in member's homes or in small meeting houses, and then have a Monthly Meeting with larger groups, much like LDS wards come together with the stake. Quakers also believe that March is the first month of the year).

To escape religious persecution in the new world, Joshua, his new wife Isabel, and their three living children, aged, 11, 8 and 5, decided to leave their ancestral home in Yorkshire and sail on the last of William Penn's ships, "The Providence" for America. This would have been scary, as they knew little about America or what lay ahead of them.

Upon reaching America later in 1683 and being settled on land obtained from Penn, Joshua Hoopes deposited his certificate from the English Quaker church with the Middletown Monthly Meeting in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. This Meeting recorded their acceptance, which was signed by 31 Friends, both men and women, which included two with Hoops surnames. Joshua later served as an Elder of the Middletown Meeting from 1714 to 1722.

Joshua's son, Daniel, who was eleven when he landed in America, later settled in Chester County, where he built a large stone house, which they named "Brooznoll" (which means breezy knoll, after Daniel's wife, Jane Worrilow's home in England) and were active in their local Quaker Meeting.

It was while living in Brooznoll that they saw General George Washington's Continental Army trudge down the nearby road to Philadelphia, after losing the Battle of Brandywine, which is just a few miles from Brooznoll. As Quakers, they didn't believe in fighting, so they didn't join the Army, but our grandfathers faithfully served in the Pennsylvania legislature, as justices of the peace, and in their Quaker Meetings. They became very prominent in Pennsylvania.

After almost 200 years at Brooznoll, with good farmland and material blessings, Daniel's 3rd great grandson, Jonathan Hoopes, decided to take his wife, Rebecca Watts, and family of 12 children, he was 56 at the time, leave all of this and move out west to Ohio, which was on the frontier of America. They left their comfortable Brooznoll for a log house they had to erect themselves. Jonathan and Rebecca took with them a certificate of good standing from their Quaker Meeting in Pennsylvania, leaving everything else for God only knew what.

But it was out in Ohio, in 1834, that Grandfather Jonathan first heard the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ from Mormon missionaries. He would not have heard it in his Pennsylvania Quaker stronghold-this is what God knew that he didn't. When Jonathan heard the Gospel in its fullness, he knew it was true and joined with those peculiar Mormons.

With his large family, Jonathan moved with the Saints and suffered much persecution in Ohio and Missouri. When asked by the Prophet Joseph, Jonathan wrote his "redress petition," documenting his persecution by the anti-Mormon mobbers. Jonathan and Rebecca eventually owned a fine home in Nauvoo, where he and grandmother were endowed in the Nauvoo Temple on the same day that some Saints were crossing the nearby Mississippi on ice. The Hoopes' also fled Nauvoo and after a few years in Iowa, came to Zion in the Rocky Mountains. Here Brother Brigham called them to settle up north in Cache County, as he called the northern most part the Mormon settlements.

This old former Quaker grandfather, who was a stonemason by trade, died at the age of 79, true to the Restored Faith, at Weston, which is now in Franklin County, Idaho.

Jonathan's son, Jonathan, Jr., settled Bennington, in Bear Lake County, where his son, our great grandfather, George Arthur, was born and raised. George Arthur's mother, Mary Ann Baldwin, was a grand daughter of Caleb Baldwin, a close personal friend of the Prophet Joseph Smith. Jonathan eventually moved his family to Arizona, where he went into old Mexico, serving as a body guard to LDS Apostles, who were looking for a place to escape their religious persecutions.

George Arthur, with a wife and small children at home in Thatcher, Arizona, left to serve a full-time mission to the Midwestern States, as was common at that time.

George Arthur later served as a counselor in the Bishopric in Thatcher for many years and in that capacity baptized eight year old Spencer Woolley (the Woolley's also descended from Daniel Hoopes) Kimball, who later became the Lord's Prophet.

George's oldest son, Grover, married a Lamoreaux girl from Dingle, Nora Estelle, in Bear Lake County, Idaho, a daughter of faithful Mormon pioneers.

Both Grover and Nora served full-time missions. Grover to the Northwestern States during the First World War, and Nora to the Midwestern States. Their eldest son, Grover Lamro, also served a full-time mission, to the Southern States before the Second World War.

When we look at our own pedigree chart, eyeing the generation that lived during the early days of the Restoration of the Gospel, we see that all of our ancestors accepted the Gospel during those trying times. They were all Mormon Pioneers, crossing the plains and settling the West. We owe a great debt of gratitude to our ancestors for the rich heritage they have left us. We can best show our gratitude by remaining faithful to our Mormon religion.
