I am a Calloway descendant, and just started where my Mother left off in her research, many years ago. And just like that ---I found the CFA!! I will be joining immediately. Nancy Rebecca Callaway was my great-grandmother. Thanks. Linda

I have written a memorial book about Peggy Ann Callaway of Chickamauga, GA... At this point, I am researching her family genealogy history to include at the end of this book. I have the family tree beginning with Thomas Callaway who was granted 766 acres in Charles City Co, VA in 1665 and continues with the family until 1960... naturally I have more current information on her immediate family... I also obtained information on the Callaways from our local "Heritage" book published in 1984... just thought I'd mention this in the event anyone is interested in the information that I have available.
Hello to All I work in Southern California as a pharmacist. Will be back working in Temecula soon. My sister Cindy passed yesterday.
We am sitting here with Mrs. Louise Kurten, of Waller, Texas, celebrating her 91st birthday. She is the daughter of Ernest A. Callaway, and Clara Umland. We are enjoying what you have put together on your web site. As a student at Waller High in 1964-65, Mr. and Mrs. Kurtne were kind enough to take me in while I finished my last years in High School. They were vere good to me, and I have many great memories of those years. We are now getting to enjoy all this new technology to see the family geneology search information. If you need any further info on Mrs. Kurten, please contact me and I will provide her mailing address. I can forward any e-mail messages if you wish. Sincerely, Charles Prince Houston, Texas

I am just signing in for my husband, Austin S. Callaway, who is a member. I am the "worker bee" who is putting all of this together. You have a great web site.
We were members in the 1970s or 1980s, but lost touch through the years. At that time, could never find anything on our line. BUT...today, found the ancestry (added 6 generations) of Carlton's line of Susan Ann Stanton Callaway (Calaway on marriage license) married James Guilford Floyd. We have additional information posted on their line on rootsweb and ancestry.com. The site is easy to navigate and has loads of information on a number of Callaway lines. Thanks for the hard work.
I have not seen your Homepages but would love too. My Husband came from James Gilford Floyd. I think that his father name was also James Floyd , that is as far as I have. Gail
I found your site on Ancestry.com looking up info about my family. Mary M. Fesperman is one of my cousins. Her brother Paul Alexander Fesperman was one of my Grandfather's. Quinn Webb
I am descended from Sarah Callaway born Aug. 8, 1804. Parents were Thomas Callaway and Nancy Hosea. I have found that sometimes she is listed as Sally. She married Robert McClure in Alabama, and her son was, my great great grandfather, Robert Wesley McClure. The story my great grandmother told, was that upon arriving home from the Civil War, Robert Wesley McClure, found his family gone, and never knew what happened to them. Is there someone who can confirm or at least provide some information as to what happened to the family. Thanks so much. This site is great!
