General merchant, rancher.
Born near Falkirk, Scotland on 23 September 1863, son of William and Agnes Galloway, in 1879 he came to Canada and settled for a time at Paris, Ontario. He came to Manitoba in 1881 with his brother Roper Galloway and established a general store at Gladstone under the name of Galloway Brothers. A large part of their business was providing meat to railway construction companies. They sold the store around 1907 and William operated a cattle ranch while Roper moved to Winnipeg. On 2 March 1898, William married Sadie Eldora Dotten (1872-1946) in the RM of Lansdowne. They had five children: William D. Galloway (b 1899), Roper Galloway (b 1901), Lottie Galloway (b 1903), Sadie Galloway (b 1909), and George Galloway (b 1912).
