My mother is Leonese Callaway born in Lafayette Co MS to Leo Fryar Callawy and Corrinne Fletchall Callaway. My aunt Anna Marie Callaway is now dead and buried with her husband Robert M. Moss at College Hill, MS, My uncle Fletcher Callaway and Aunt Jean are living. I have a fairly good family tree. My cousin indicated that you had Allison Fountain Callaway as a female but he is the father of my grandfather. I have some of the family history and would be willing to work with someone to correct the records and make sure that I have everything correct. I also have digital photos. I belonged to the association a number of years ago but have not belonged in recent years.
I found your website by searching for information about my great grandfather, John Sanders Callaway. My grandmother was Edna Callaway, who married a Boswell. I remember seeing the Callaway Family tree on the wall at my granmother's house. It was always quite impressive to me. Thanks Charles Dunn
How do I find anything? Stumbled into it looking for Callaway/Calloway. Hope to connect and share. Have information on the Rev. Joseph Pitt "J.P." Callaway when he was Methodist minister in Texas. I'm descended from his second wife Penelope Dyer Hardin and looking for their location in 1916 at the time of her death - to locate her gravesite. Will gladly share info.
i am the granddaughter of wilkerson and clementine calloway
I ran across your journal today while researching my family in the Calhoun County, AL library. I will be joining to learn more about my Callaway side. My 5th great grandmother was Mary Callaway Thrash, d 1869, dau John and Bethany Callaway. I have pictures of Mary and Christopher Columbus Thrash's gravesite in Merriwether Co., GA east of Gay. I will post them later. Thanks for the site.
I have found your website quite helpful in my research and thank you. If possible, I would like to speak via email with a representative of the cfa. I have one addition and one correction to the very useful cfa document THE CALLAWAY CENSUS RECORDS FROM 1790-1860 which may interest you in the event of a republication of the document. In addition, I am interested to know what criteria the organization uses to determine weather or not submitted information will be posted. I have been researching the lineage of three Callaway brothers who left Mobile, Alabama after the 1850 census and moved to California to mine for gold. Unsuccessful, they settled and farmed in Sacramento, Yolo, and Sonoma counties in California. I have a great deal of information on their descendants but have been unable to document their parents. There is some circumstantial evidence that they were sons of a Callaway in your database from the line of Peter Callaway, Maryland. I am curious to know what sources and what quality sources are required to accept a lineage.
You may be interested that my father, Warren Callaway, will be 90 years old on 15 August 2003. Two years ago, he, my sister, and I went to the Channel Islands to visit our ancestors' homes. We were welcomed by relatives and were thrilled to see the houses of some of the bygone Callaways on Alderney and Guernsey.

My father was Audra Elijah Williams, b 1907 d. 1985 son of Will B Williams b. 1882 d. 1936 and Mary A. Callaway b. 1880 d. 1928 Just trying to create a family tree for my son
One of my ancestors, a John Records (Rickards), was married to Ann Calloway, daughter of Peter Calloway. Also, Spencer Records, mentions a Flanders Calloway in his Memoirs. But the main reason I'm researching in this area is that my 7-g grandfather, Charles Records, was supposedly killed by Indians in Kentucky. I'm looking for information to confirm this.
I am looking for some documentation of Revolutionary War service of the John Callaway born in 1742 in Somerset County, MD. He supposedly lived in NC and ultimately Wilkes County, GA, and married Bethany Arnold.
Son of Glen Elwood Callaway ,Grandson of John Callaway, Melrose Township Grundy County, Iowa
I have just recently been given the name of this website. I am a Callaway. My g-grandfather's mother was Anna Irene Callaway b. 7 Jan 1832, Sussex Co. DE and d. 13 Aug 1913 Easton, Talbot Co. MD. Her father was Samuel Callaway (m. Mary Thompson) She married George H. Seymour in 1859 and was the mother of 8 children. My g-grandfather was her first child.......Samuel James Seymour. Does anyone know more about this Callaway line?

I had been searching for the Francis Willis Callaway family in 1860 census and finally found them in Bee County, Texas with the help of my newly found cousin D'Ann Green, who has a wealth of information about the Henry and Callaway families. Thank you ever so much, D'Ann. Carl F. Callaway
Good Site. Helpful as well..
I appreciate the news-letter from Donna so very very much - It is great. I know she must spend hundreds of hours to bring us the news. Love, Wanda Phillips
Does anyone know of a Samuel Callaway who was a Railroad engineer Virginia &Truckee R.R. 1886-87 and St. Louis- Cairo R.R. 1878. His artifacts were in my grandfather's possession when he died.(.Possible great uncle) Powhattan's brother
Hi there, it turns out my gggranddad Eli Fitzwater married Martha "Mattie" Calloway sometime in 1862 in TX. Her parents were Shadrack Calloway and Catherine Baker. I noticed in researching that both of Mattie's parents have impressive and interesting history and linage in NC, and VA.
Ex-husband is a Callaway. His side doesn't have much to do with kids. Curiosity for kids.
I am constantly amazed everytime I visit this site on all of the genealogy represented here from the Callaway/Calloway line. For those who wish to see history come alive, watch the History Channel about Daniel Boone in KY and how his daughter married into the Callaway/Calloway line. It is also rumored that Daniel Boone's favorite hunting partner in NC was a Calloway.
My mother was a Callaway before she married. Her father was David Callaway born in Brighton England around the turn of the century. We were always told that the name was originally D'Callaway (pronounced as in " I'll call you") and had a french connection. We were told someone came over from France during the French revolution and changed their name to Callaway. Has anyone else heard this?

MARY ANN CALLAWAY - SWAN CALLAWAY SOUTH CAROLINA 1787 - 1850 GEORGIA I am trying to locate information on the following: Mary Ann Callaway - Birth 1811-1813 - Possible Pendleton, South Carolina. Death Possible 1834 in Greenville County, S.C. or Pendleton, S.C. Swan Callaway (Calaway) - Possible Misspelling on Swan Calaway in 1850 Census in Murray County, Georgia. Birth 1787 - Death after 1850 Probably Georgia. Re: Mary Ann Callaway was married to William Earles Cleveland, the son of William Cleveland and Nancy Harrison of Pendleton District, S.C. She had two children. My Grandmother Frances Adeline Cleveland and William Cleveland. The family moved to Murray County, Georgia, and can be found on the 1850 Census there. He has a new spouse, Anna Popham(Pepham). They are living there with Swan Calaway (Callaway). Swan may be a misspelling. I believe this Swan (Susan or Sarah) if misspelled may be an aunt or a close relative of Mary Ann who helped raise Frances Adeline and William after Mary Ann Cleveland's death. Frances and William are married and out of the home in 1850 and living in Murray County, Georgia. Would love to hear from anyone who may have these two names listed in any family or Bible Records or any information. Very nice website. Thank you
Hoping that this site will help answer some questions on Gladys Callawway Flanigan and her Mother's Lula Lee line. Enjoy reading the info however.

Anyone know where in the Greene Co, Ind Callaways came from?
Thank you for your site with wonderful information so generously shared. I was looking for information on Mary Lavinia Callaway who married John Bramblett. And I found some information about her parentage...Peter CallawayI of Maryland. All the best to those searching...
I am a Callaway descendent - Adeleine Callaway was my great grandmother.
Just checking out the site to see if I can make a connection. You're doing a great job with the newsletter, Donna! I look forward to each one.
I would like to get in contact with Ann Fitzpatrick Graham, who wrote looking for ancestors of Oscar Callaway of Comanche. I am a Smith by maiden name, but of course have always been intrigued by the Callaways since my mother gave me their name in honor of her uncle by marriage. Ann if you would like to contact me my address is 3703Wood Dale, Kingwood, Texas 77345, or e-mail email@example.com. I would love to hear from you. Do you know the Covington family from Amarillo. Their grandmother, Sloan Couch, married Uncle Gib. I knew him also. But I did not remember that they had a sister. Thanks, Stella
