The Editor’s Corner


We want to thank our membership for their understanding and patience as the CFA transitions to a new e-newsletter delivery system. To insure delivery of the monthly e-newsletter and all Callaway emails please add admin@callawayfamily.info and callawayjournal@aol.com to your accepted email addresses.

May is Personal History Month

It’s time again to think of keeping a personal journal. It would be a story of your life to pass down in your family. Think of your great great grandchildren reading it. Remember, in genealogy it is the details that matter.

Editor’s note: I encourage each of you to send in articles for the e-Newsletter. It doesn’t have to be lengthy. It could be some “Callaway/Calloway/Kellaway” news, a family story, a family photo, a favorite family recipe, results from your family line research, or any item you think would be of interest to our readers. Send them to me, and I will take care of adding them into the monthly e-newsletter.

John Callaway Family of Campbell Co., Virginia

Old Bible records are sometimes the only source one may find as a record for an ancestors birth, death or marriage. While the entries can be most helpful in filling in basic information on your ancestor researchers often do not have access to the original Bible, but rather a transcription. As with any “second hand” source be cautious of the information and work to verify the transcribed date with other sources if available.

In compiling the family of John Callaway below, one source referenced was the Callaway-Hewitt Family Bible that was featured in the June 2009 CFA e-Newsletter under Query #534. The actual transcription by Juliet Fauntleroy in 1938 can be viewed through the Digital Library of Virginia at Callaway-Hewitt Family Bible record 1738-1930.

John B. Calloway: A Family Connection to Bonnie & Clyde
by Samuel Taylor Geer

In a follow up to the article Bonnie and Clyde and the Callaway Connection published in the November 2009 CFA e-newsletter in which D’Ann Green inquired about the ancestry of John (Jack) Callaway first husband of “Blanche” Caldwell, who later married “Buck” Barrow fellow outlaw and brother of the infamous Clyde Barrow.

Documentation in numerous published works on the Barrow Gang, as well as public records, alternately lists John’s surname as Callaway and Calloway. U.S. census records from 1910, 1920, 1930 and 1940 consistently list his surname as CALLOWAY and it is by this name he is buried at Roselawn Park Cemetery in Palestine, Texas. He is found on the 1930 census living in a boarding house in Tulsa, Olahoma where he is identified as Jack Calloway, widowed, age 44. John’s WWII Draft Registration Card identifies his middle initial as B with the word “initial” in parentheses. Such notation suggests that he did not have a middle name, but rather just an initial in place of a middle name.

John is found living in his parent’s household in the 1900 census for Johnson Co., TX where he is listed as Johie Calaway, age 13. His parents, Zachariah and Louella F. “Lou” Hunter Callaway, are listed as: Zack Calaway, age 33, and Lov [sic] H. Calaway, age 31. Zack is found on the 1880 census living in his father’s household in Hunt Co., TX. His father is listed as Andy Calaway, age 27, whose wife is listed as Mary, also age 27. Andy and Mary are Andrew Jackson Callaway (1849-1898) and Mary Frances Butler (1842-1891). They married May 14, 1863 in Calhoun Co., AR. Mary was then the widow of Talmon Harbour (1842- c1863).

Following the family ancestry, John’s line of descent is:

Query – 628

Subject – Julia Ann Callaway b. 8 Nov 1822 Georgia d. 22 Mar 1882 Newnan, Coweta, GA

Submitter – Rene Gade

email – RenegadeRN at hotmail.com

I found your Callaway Family connection sight thru searching for the subject person. It is very convoluted. I will do my best to explain my connection and why I am searching. I have many brick walls and am trying to break them down.

ISO subject person Julia Ann Callaway b. 8 Nov 1822 in Georgia. I think she might have been born in Wilkes County, GA, but not even certain. She died 22 Mar 1882 Newnan, Coweta, GA and is buried there. I got the information off her headstone. She married Meriwether T. WALKER 3 Dec 1839 in Chambers County, Alabama. Julia and Meriwether had 6 children. Their second child Joel Wiley WALKER married and is my great-great-grandfather’s sister (3rd great-Aunt) Caroline L. KELLY. Nothing is known about Caroline, except she died early in life and her husband Joel Wiley WALKER remarried to a Nancy C. ??? in 1879. Meriwether and Julia are in Chambers County, AL 1839. They are in Chambers County, AL in the 1850-1860-1870 Census. They are listed in the 1880 Newnan, Coweta, GA Federal Census where they are found living in the same house as their youngest daughter Lou. They also live next door to Joel Wiley WALKER and Nancy C. WALKER along with Caroline’s 3 children. I know nothing about Meriwether T. WALKER/Julia Ann (nee CALLAWAY) WALKER before 1839 or really after about 1880ish.

I believe that Meriwether T. WALKER was also born in Wilkes County, GA. I do not know why they are in Chambers County, AL. I suspect that Meriwether T. WALKER is related to WALKERs from VA, but unknown connection or ancestry found. Meriwether and Julia are living in Troup County, GA in Jan 1841. I know he was appointed Postmaster in Troup County, GA in Jun of 1841. I have found numerous GA Tax Records that show Meriwether T. , Julia Ann, and Joel W. WALKER have lands in both Troup County, GA and Harris County, GA. In fact as much as 200 acres in one case. Meriwether is mentioned in a book: “The Reason For The Tears” A History of Chambers County, Alabama, 1832-1900 “Fredonia.”

I know really nothing of Julia Ann CALLAWAY and noted there were a few Unknown in your “Callaway Family Association.” I mention the WALKERs alot because that is the info I have and hope you might have some information. I also noted Julia Walker CALLAWAY in your Association list. I am wondering if naming conventions apply? I also noted that many CALLAWAYs were in both Troup County, GA as well as Harris County, GA and after research of 25 years I have learned that there weren’t many people living in a county back then and if so, they were connected through ancestry.

And lastly, before I leave….is it possible that this Meriwether T. WALKER might have been a Native American from the Creek Nation who took on a new name that was prevalent in the said counties? And may be this is why I have been unsuccessful in find the ancestry/genealogy of WALKER and CALLAWAY?
