Matthew D. Callaway  was born in 1817 in Georgia possibly in Jasper Co.  His father may have been William W.

MS.  After the Civil War they moved to Texas with their children and the family of their oldest son William.  Matthew and Sarah had 5 children.  Matthew died in 1879 probably in Bosque Co. TX

These are the only children I have for them possibly there were more as there are several years between the births of some of the children listed.


William W. Callaway born January 24, 1776 died February 1860 is listed as the father of Matthew in a Bible that once belonged to Sarah Glenn McWhorter Callaway.  William probably lived in Jasper Co. GA.  Who was his wife, who were his other children and who were his parents?
