I would like to know more about your organization please tell me more. joanne
It has always been my understanding that John Kelloway & Elizabeth Lloyd emigrated from Poughill (Cornwall) England abt 1800 to Perry's Cove, Newfoundland. While searching the LDS recently, I came across the following information: John Calloway (born abt 1771 in Poundstock, Cornwall, England) married Elizabeth Lloyd (born abt 1775 in Poughill, Cornwall, England) on 11 FEB 1796. What I thought was interesting, is that John's surname is listed as 'Calloway'. Is it possible that the surname changed to 'Kelloway' after he and Elizabeth arrived to Newfoundland, Canada? I know there has always been a curiousity surrounding the exchanging of surnames. Could this be where the exchanging of the Kelloway/Calloway surnames began?
I am a cluck researcher and responed to the inquiry about annie Pickney Cluck that married a callaway.
My name is Carol nee Lester. Your Malinda Abigail Callawy married William Barnett Lester. He was my GGGG,grandfather. John Henry Lester, B.1891-1970,M. Emma Burgess, was my dad's father. I was glad to find your site and now can research our link to Callaways. Thank you,I will now check out your site. Thanks, Carol
Our Callaway website is wonderful. I hope all of you who read and enjoy the Callaway information will share your lines with us -- and join the Callaway Family Association. Pat Schnurr, Pres. CFA
Came across your group back in early 1980's. Maybe now communication is easier, I hope.
I'm looking for information about the children of John Bowden and Jane Callaway. One of their sons, Benjamin, was my Great-Grandfather. He married Mary Brown and their son, John Alfred Bowden was my Grandfather. They were all from Coosa County Alabama. I've just started researching my Mother's family and need help! The Callaway family is the only family I can find any information on, and I'm not really sure that I've found the right Callaways. I know that my Great-Great-Grandmother's name was Jane Callaway and that she married Thomas John Bazemore after my Great-Great-Grandfather died. If you can help me my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you, Beth
We Were trying to trace our family history and this site has been very interesting and hopefully will lead us to more Callaway's. Thank you.
Son of William Curtis Callaway
i am a callaway
My grandmother was a Calloway. Her parents were Francis A. and Amanda (Felts) Calloway. I am hoping to trace back as far as I can on that line. I also enjoy reading the CFA newsletter.
I am seeking info on Leander S. Tutner who was my great grandfather and lived in Wilson County, Tennessee. Any info would be appreciated. Thank you!
Looking for any of the relatives from William David Callaway and Sarah Minerva Brown Humphreys Callaway marriage. I am from the William David and Nancy Lodema Fleming Callaway marriage. William David married Sarah Minerva Brown Humphreys following Nancy Lodema's and Thomas Humprey's death in 1873-4 time frame. Both came to the marriage with an infant son. They then had five other children. William Harley Callaway was my grand father and the son of William David and Nancy Lodema Callaway. I have been looking for the grave site of Francis Willis Callaway, who was William David's Father, and Nancy Lodema Fleming Callaway, who was William David's first wife. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Carl Callaway
I am the gg grandson of Freeman Callaway. I just learned of the journels and gave it a look with my mom.
I really enjoyed visiting this website. Maybe it was luck? I don't know. I have never read or seen anything about any of my ancestors so to see something about another Cofer was quite a surprise for me.
My Dad's oldest sister, Maud Winifred FENNELL, B. 1902, married Max CALLAWAY in Winnipeg in 1920's. They had one daughter, Joan, b. 1930's. They lived for years in Winnipeg, MB, Canada, and eventually Max' work took them to Montreal, Quebec, Canada. They retired to the USA - Max was US born. Eventually settled in Arizona and possibly moved to Texas. Looking for any living relatives.
My mother stumbled upon the family tree a couple of years ago. I decided to do a google search and found the site! My GGGrandmother is Georgia Correllia Callaway, from Conway, Arkansas and 8 generations removed from Peter. I will be joining the family association this week.
Just checking your updates. I'm always interested in any changes. Looking forward to CFA Reunion in October. Lucy Gray
Hi, I am a descendant of Abner Early Callaway, son of James Callaway and Elizabeth Early. Abner moved to MO following the 1830 census and died there sometime in or before 1834. His oldest son, James, was my gggrandfather. I am interested in any information anyone has regarding Abner's cause of death, his burial place which is probably somewhere in Madison County, Missouri, and the fate of his wife, Ann Eliza (Lewis) and their other children.

Great site. I'm from the Connecticut Calaway's.
My maternal g'father was Rev. Timothy Walton Callaway, b. March 22, 1874 in Americus, GA. He authored the book "Callaway Baptist Preachers 1789-1953". The genealogy listings starting on page 7 of that book seem to differ considerably from the info on your site. I wonder if any in your organization have seen this book and done an evaluation of the listing for accuracy? I remember when he was writing the book (hunt & peck on an old Royal typewriter) and 3x5 cards about which he often seemed confused. He does make the following note on page 8: "There seems to be a misunderstanding in the genealogy of the original Callaways moving to Wilkes Co., GA.... However, we feel assured of the genealogy beginning with the Callaways of Wilkes County, Georgia."
I am very excited to be able to trace my family lineage through your website! I am the daughter of Georgia CALLAWAY TOWNS (who is still living) but your source on RootsWeb.Com listed her as dead. She is one of 3 (not 2) children of Malcolm Hillyer CALLAWAY, Sr. and his wife's name was Lillie Mae FLYNT. His father was Reuben H. CALLAWAY. What should I do to get the corrected information to the right person? I plan to become a Star member, once I complete all the necessary forms. By the way, what is the fee to be a Star member?
I still have not found any info on Francis Willis Callaway on where and how he died and where he is buried. Also about Nancy Lodema Fleming Callaway's grave site. Any distant relatives who might have some info, please contact me at my email or at my phone:817-485-6447. Thank you.
Hi all, I am looking for information on the children of Joshua Callaway [b.01 OCT 1783 in DE; Zachariah, William, William, Peter Callaway]. He lived in Monroe Co, WV/VA and had 2 wives, Rebakah Campbell [m.14 NOV 1808] & Nancy Roals [m.20 MAR 1813]. There is information that Joshua moved to Raleigh Co WV in 1853 with his oldest son [Rebekah campbell]Garner Callaway, He died there on 23 OCT 1879. I have proven my ancestry back to McComas Callaway [b. 08 FEB 1820 Monroe Co, WV/VA]. Anecdotal information has McComas the son of Joshua & Nancy Roals but I can't put them together. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
