Captain Callaway was killed in an Indian ambuscade which took place on Prairie Fork, a branch of Loutre Creek, in present limits of Montgomery Co., Mo. He was shot in the back of the head while swimming the creek, and his body was not recovered until several days after his death. The body was wrapped in blankets and was buried on the side of the hill overlooking Loutre Creek. Several months afterward the grave was covered with stones and a flat slab laid thereon on which was engraved:

                                             Capt. Jas. Callaway,
                                                March 7, 1815

The slab had been prepared by Tarleton Goe of St. Charles Co., a cousin of Capt. Callaway, and is still to be found in its original resting place, the inscription thereon being quite plain.

U. S. Peter Callaway Line


Eugene Charles Callaway of Atlanta, Georgia
from: The Atlanta Georgian and News, Atlanta, GA, December 24, 1909, p. 11:

EUGENE C. CALLAWAY holds a first rank place among the men whose talent and enterprise have brought Atlanta to her present position as one of the chief distributing centers of the South. He is the head of the Gate City coffin Company, one of the solid business institutions of Atlanta. Mr. Callaway was born on a plantation near Cuthbert, Ga., and spent most of his early life in LaGrange. The story of his success is strong argument in proof of the triumph of will power over circumstances. In 1881, when a mere boy, he visited Atlanta. He was walking along Pryor st. one day by the place where Commerce Hall now stands when the thought suddenly flashed into his mind with tremendous force that this spot was to be the scene of his future business career. The building was then occupied by Moore, Marsh & Co. Mr. Callaway resolved forth with to get into the service of this firm and there to remain until he became a partner. Two years later Mr. Callaway came to Atlanta again for the purpose of answering an advertisement of Moore, Marsh & Co. for a clerk. He was taken into the firm, and when he left it nine years later he had been a partner for two years. Since then Mr. Callaway has been identified with the Gate City Coffin Company, which has prospered and grown steadily under his management by the simple law of the survival of the fittest. While its competitors, especially the smaller ones, were dropping out of the struggle this company strengthened and enlarged until now its field of trade extends from Virginia to Texas and Oklahoma, and during the month just past it eclipsed all former records.

Query - 634
Subject –  Flanders Callaway and Dr. William Callaway
Submitter - Jo Jeanne Callaway
email -  JoJeanne_Callaway at hotmail.com

This letter is written in hopes that I can learn something about the more recent genealogy of my branch of the Callaway family. I have an old genealogy chart, one which once belonged to an Aunt of mine who would be in excess of 125 years old were she still living. I know a little bit about the history of my branch of the Callaway family, but the facts I have are sparse and scattered. I am hoping that someone there can fill in the blanks for me, as I would like to pass the information on to my two sons, and also to a nephew, while I am still able to. (I still maintain a regular medical practice, but I will be 85 years old my next birthday).

I know that my branch of the Callaway family genealogical record included a man named Flanders William (?) Callaway, who married Jemima Boone, the daughter of Daniel Boone in 1746. Jemima Boone had nine children. One was Captain James Callaway, killed in the Indian wars, and after whom Callaway County Missouri was named. I don’t know which of his siblings projected the line ahead, but do know that Dr. William Callaway was the grandson of Jemima Boone. The old chart I have does not show each one of Dr. William Callaway’s male offspring carried my branch of the Callaway line forward, and the genealogy chart I have ends with a woman named Elizabeth McCullough in 1840. That may possibly have been the date of her marriage. My grandfather, Joseph Montgomery Callaway, was born in 1864 and died in 1964. I know that he had one brother, Benjamin Callaway, who would have been my great uncle, and I believe that Benjamin Callaway had a son named Bruce Callaway, who would have been my father’s first cousin. These people, my paternal grandfather, my great uncle and my father’s first cousin all lived in Polk County, MO, where my father, Joseph Con Callaway and his two older sisters, Eva Callaway McCrory and Arah Marcelle Callaway Wilson were born. My father was the youngest of 3 children born to my grandfather, Joseph Montgomery Callaway and his wife Tennessee Belle Callaway, and my father was born in 1896. He died at age 48 years, but his two older sisters, his mother and especially his father all had much longer lives. My father, Con Callaway, married Elva Logan Callaway in 1914, and they had 3 children who survived, my older sister, Eva Marcelle Callaway Garland, born in 1916, and my next older sister, Elva Coneita Callaway, born in 1918. I was born in 1933.The old Callaway genealogy chart I have once belonged to my Aunt, Eva Callaway McCrory, but it is not a very recent record.

The older of my two sisters, Eva Marcelle Callaway Garland, was actively interested in and pursuant of more information about the Callaway family history for a great many years. She was a member of the Callaway Family Association and with her husband, my brother-in-law, James C. Garland, attended the yearly Callaway Family Association gatherings for a number of years in many different cities. At one point she enrolled me as a member of the Callaway Family Association and paid my dues, but I was then a young doctor, too busy pursuing my own career to follow up as I should have. My sister Marcelle has two children, my nephew, a retired physicist and academician, Dr. James Callaway Garland, and my niece, Nancy Garland Robertson. My niece suffered a stroke several years ago, which would not allow her to pursue what might have been her interest in family history, but her brother, Dr. James Garland, who is retired in New Mexico, called me a few months ago asking for any genealogical information I could pass along to him as soon as it is convenient. His interest is another reason for this letter.

So, while I know my sister, Marcelle Garland, would have had a much more recent genealogy record, I have no way of having my hands on such at this point, as both of my sisters are deceased. Hence, this letter to you in hopes that there will be genealogy specialists in the Callaway Family Association who can fill in the blanks for me regarding my branch of the Callaway family, and if there is such, I would also like to purchase a genealogy chart of the complete Callaway family tree.

I do have in my hands a rather romantic story once given to me by my sister Marcelle about the courtship of Daniel Boone’s daughter Jemima and Flanders Callaway, who was apparently a young follower of Daniel Boone’s. The story what must have begun somewhere in central Missouri territory near what became Booneville. It is recounted in the enclosed attachment.

About the only other piece of information I can offer that might be of help to you is that I recall my sister, Marcelle, speaking many times of a good friend of hers who was also a member of the Callaway Family Association, and in fact, a much more active member than my sister could ever be, and one who provided Marcelle with much genealogical information. Her name was Bobbi Callaway, I think this is the correct spelling of her first name, but can’t be sure. My sister, Marcelle, has been deceased for several years and was in her mid 90’s at the time of her death, and the same may have been true of her friend, who, I believe, was older than she. However, records of Bobbi Callaway’s active participation in the Callaway Family genealogy research might assist you in finding some information to help me fill in the blank spaces and bring my branch of the genealogy history up to date for my sons, and for my sister’s son. Their surname, of course, is not Callaway, but I have always used my maiden name professionally and am very proud of my Callaway family heritage, as they are of theirs. I will be most appreciative if you can help me leave them a little better informed about who we are than I could at this point. Thank you again.

Query – 635
Subject – Individual Callaway family lines
SubmitterBetty Johnson Elofson
Query –emailrelofson1 at cox.net

Some years ago (1996) in the Callaway Family Association Journal it was stated that the CFA officers and directors have agreed on a plan to do a series on individual family lines. Francis Callaway, Sr., son of Joseph was to be one of the 2 series: including all information in CFA files on Francis and his descendants of which I am one (coming down from Francis I, Francis Jr, Francis III, Francis III’s daughter Rhoda Chandler Callaway Mangham Moore, Sarah Elizabeth Moore Harwell, William Mack Harwell, Omie Dell Harwell Johnson, AND Me-Sarah Betty Johnson Elofson. Have I somehow missed this very enticing lineage listing? Please let me know the current state of this venture and if it has happened, how can I get to it.

Editor’s Note: The one compilation of family lines that the CFA has put together was published in October 2000; entitled “Descendants of Joseph and Peter Callaway” and includes the first 5 generations of each of these American immigrants although they are of different DNA origin. Joseph settled in what would become Virginia and Peter settled in Maryland. This book is available at a cost of $25.00 by sending a check to Callaway Family Association PO Box 674374 Marietta, GA 30006.
