    Calloway Family Genealogy

    Hello fellow Calloway researchers. This compilation has been the effort of several individuals, exchanging information, family trees and data, both on the internet and through regular snail mail.While I am posting this information and attempting to keep up a database, it certainly is a combined effort of many people.

    There are two main spelling variations of this surname, CALLOWAY and CALLAWAY. There has been much discussion of the difference between the "O" and the "A". I do not believe there is any difference. The other variations I am aware of are CALAWAY and CALOWAY. I have no doubt omitted a few, so if you know of any others, let me know.

    Regardless of the spelling, I have indexed all the individuals as CALLOWAY. I did that for my own convenience in handling all this. I chose that spelling because it is what my line of the family used.

    This report should not be taken as the final authority. It is only a beginning and undoubtedly contains errors, omissions and even duplicates. That is why I publish it. I want your input to make it more accurate and more complete. I look forward to a continuing dialogue concerning this family and its descendants/ancestors. Please contact me if you have any comments, corrections, suggestions, questions updates, or further information.

    Most of my Calloway information comes from the World Family Tree, the Internet, Surry Co, NC Heritage book, census records, and fellow researchers. Thats not to say that what I post here is absoultly, positively, accurate. It is a common practice to accept what someone else tells you as fact when in reality it is thought or supicision. I have no absolute proof at this time that proves my lineage prior to the 1800s and am relying on others for that information. A preponderance of researchers appear to agree with the lineage I listed.

    Some of the basic information I have found points in the direction of two seperate Calloway line, one from Maryland and one from Virginia. Both appeared in the United States in the 1600s. They start with a Peter Calloway from Maryland and a Joseph Calloway from Virginia. Most all the Calloways I have chronicled originate from these two lines. To my knowledge there has been no connection or relationship made between the two. All of the Calloways listed on the following pages are from the Joseph Calloway line from Virginia. I have no information on the Peter Calloway line from Maryland.

    An excellent source of information is the Calloway Family Association. It offers census records on line of all the Calloways. They also produce a yearly journal that is for sale. I personally have not purchased any of them but would imagine them to be a treasure trove of information. The address is: http://www.metronet.com/~cfa/callaway/home.htm

Col. Callaway gave 100 acres at the county- seat for the establishment of a town there; he and his sons were very active in county affairs; his son William also bore the title of Col. and records of them, in consequence, may be easily confused.

    Generation No. 4

    4. RICHARD4 CALLOWAY, COL. (JOSEPH3, JOSEPH2, EDMUND1 CALLAWAY) was born June 14, 1717 in Essex Co., VA, and died March 08, 1780 in Kentucky. He married (1) FRANCES R. WALTON Abt. 1744 in Bedford Co., VA, daughter of ROBERT WALTON and FRANCES WALTON. She was born January 14, 1726/27, and died 1766 in Bedford Co., VA. He married (2) ELIZABETH JONES Abt. 1767, daughter of GABRIEL JONES and MARGARET STROTHER. She was born Bet. 1705 - 1725.

    Notes for RICHARD CALLOWAY, COL.:
    In charge of Logan's Fort in KY.
    Col. Richard Calloway was killed by Indians near Boonesborough, KY., in March 1780 during the Revolutionary War. The Indians carried his scalp to Ohio, their camp. When they reached the camp they waved the scalp in the air with fiendish glee. He had peculiar, long grey hair. A friend named Jackson, a prisoner, recognized his scalp. When he was later released and returned to Kentucky, he told how horrified he was when he saw the scalp lock waved in the air and knew at once that his friend Richard Callaway had been killed by savages. Richard's body was stripped, mutilated, and rolled in mud. He was buried at Boonesborough, KY.


    Richard Callaway (Dick as sometimes called) was commissioned to survey a road into Kentucky for the Henderson Company in Feb. 1775 which he did in company with Daniel Boone and a party of thirty persons. He returned to Va. and brought families to Bonnesborough Sept. 1775. He was a member of the first Transylvania convention which met under a tree near Boonesborough May 23 1775 and was later elected to the VA. house of Burgesses 1777/79 from Kentucky county. He was granted the ferry privilege across the Lentucky river at Boonsborough Oct. 1779 and was killed by indians while working on a ferry boat in 1780.

    *Personal Note* I read in a book about Daniel Boone that Richard's body was so mutilated beyond recognition. Jill DeGraeve-Cruse

    Richard Callaway, a man destined to play an important role in Boone's life during the next few years. Callaway had joined Henderson's enterprise at about the same time as Boone and was in charge of hauling the goods and supplies to treaty grounds. The youngest son of a powerful landowning family in the Shenandoah valley of VA. Callaway was ten years Boone's senior .

    Callaway was officious, bad tempered and a bit of a blue blood.

    The following an excerpt from "The Adventures of Daniel Boon" by Daniel Boon

    On the fourteenth day of July 1776, two of Col. Callaway's daughters, and one of mine, were taken prisoners near the fort. I immediately pursued the Indians, with only eight men, and on the sixteenth overtook them, killed two of the party, and recovered the girls.


    This chronological narrative was compiled by Mr. Clyde Bunch, of Jessamine County, Kentucky, and provided to the Logan's Fort Foundation, which accepts full responsibility for authenticity.

    (Enquoted text is the original journal entry.)

    February 7, 1778 - Daniel Boone was captured at Blue Licks,
    while making salt, with a party of thirty men. Later that same
    year Boone would be tried for treason. The charges against
    Boone were made by Col. Richard Callaway and supported by
    Benjamin Logan. The court-martial was held a Logan's Fort.

    Notes for ELIZABETH JONES:
    I too, have seen this parentage repeated time and time again, but I
    don't think it is correct. I don't believe that Elizabeth was the
    daughter of Gabriel. I think this information was retrieved from FTM
    CD's which can be very unreliable - especially those lines which give no
    documentation. Note that their marriage occurred in 1759 - so there is
    no way they could have been the parents of Elizabeth Jones born in 1733
    - let alone any earlier.

    The birthdate of 1733, I believe, comes from the French Papers. She is
    reportedly buried in the French Family Cemetery, which would make sense
    given her eldest daughter married a French.

    I think the 1733 (or close thereabouts) is probably correct - especially
    taken with the dates from the Callaway family. The problem is that it
    makes it impossible for her to be the mother of John Booker Hoy or his
    brother William.

    From: Tammy Jones <tamjon@tranquility.net>

    I also highly doubt that she was the wife of John Hoy, b. 1699. I have
    heard mentions that he died in Buckingham County, VA and then I have
    also heard mentions of a will. Since Buckingham was a burned county,
    the will must have been proven or litigated in some way in another
    county, if in fact it even exists.

    This is all quite puzzling - but I think we can be assured that she was
    not the daughter of Gabriel and she was not the mother of William or
    John Booker Hoy. I am beginning to wonder if she wasn't their sister
    with "Jones" being her mother's maiden name and thus her middle name.
    If there was an Elizabeth Jones born around 1710 who married John Hoy b.
    1699 and who remained in VA, this would make sense and was possibly how
    they were confused.

    I am wondering if Elizabeth Jones Hoy is somehow related to John Jones
    (1710) of Buckingham who married Elizabeth Walker Jones (1719).

    Here are some of the reasons for my thinking -

    1) Elizabeth Jones Hoy and Richard Callaway named their first child
    "Keziah." This was not a common name. John and Elizabeth Walker Jones
    also named a daughter "Keziah Jones" who married Anthony Winston and
    removed to AL. It is also suspected that John Jones had a sister named
    Keziah, making her an aunt to Keziah Jones Winston and possibly an aunt
    or great aunt to Keziah Callaway. In addition, William Hoy names a
    daughter "Keziah" in his will.

    2) There was a VA Jones land transaction witnessed by Asaph Walker
    (brother to Elizabeth Walker Jones, who married Judith Trabue and
    removed to Madison Co., KY in the 1780's) and John Booker Hoy.

    3) William Hoy (circa 1740-1789/90) had a son named "Jones Hoy" or
    Rowland Jones Hoy which indicates that he did have some connection to
    the Jones family.

    I am really wondering if Elizabeth Jones Hoy Callaway wasn't a sister to
    William Hoy and John Booker Hoy and their mother was Elizabeth Jones who
    married John Hoy and that Elizabeth was a sister to John Jones (1710) of
    Buckingham.

    Any thoughts???

    Notes for JOHN HOLDER, CAPT.:
    FROM: HISTORY OF KENTUCKY - VOL. II pg. 657
    "Holder's Defeat"

    on the 10th of August 1728, the Indians committed some depredations at Hay's Station in Madison County, just 10 miles southwest of Boonesborough and took two boys prisoners. Capt. John Holder, with several men from his own station, on the Kentucky River two miles below Boonesborough started in pursuit - increasing his number of men as he passed McGees' and Strodes Stations to seventeen. He came up with the enemy near the Upper Blue Licks and bravely attacked them. But finding the Indian's force greatly superior in numbers and about to overpower him, quietly gave orders to retreat - - which was effected with the loss of four men killed and wounded. The Indian loss was never ascertained.

    KY Historical Society - 1956: "In the KY Historical Society Register, Vol.28,

    John Holder was appointed a Lt. Col. by Gov. Isaac Shelby in 1794, making him Commandant of the 17th Regiment, Clark Co.KY. Capt. John Holder assisted in the recapture of the daughters of Boone and Callaway, and afterwards married Frances Callaway. He was with Col. John Bowman on his expedition against the Ohio Indians in May 1775, and at 'Holder's Defeat' in Fayette in 1782. Quitting the fort at Boonesboro in 1781 he built his own station two miles below on the Kentucky River. As a subordinate officer under Col. Benj. Logan, his name is identified with every chapter in the history of the county while Madison was a part of the territory over which Logan's office of County Lt. extended.

    Capt. Holder's move in 1781 to his own station placed him in Clark Co., when that county was formed in 1792. He had a boat yard at his place on the Kentucky River, now known as Combs Ferry."

    A monument erected to Capt. Holder reads: "An outstanding pioneer at Fort Boonesborough, 1776-81. Among the rescuers of Calloway and Boone girls captured by Indians. Named Colonel of the Militia, 1779. Engaged in expeditions against Indians. In 1781 built Holder's Station and operated boatyard at the mouth of Howard's Creek. Led in the Battle of Upper Blue Licks, 1782. Trustee of Winchester, Justice Co. Court."

    From Winchester KY researcher, 1993: "He [Capt.Holder] died in debt - had gone bond for Robert Higgins, an early sheriff. I do not know what Higgins did but Holder and another bondsman lost everything. His children were put under guardianship to various relatives and a little later Frances [wife of John H.] remarried. A great grandson gave an interview with a Louisville news reporter and he told of visiting the graves of his famous ancestors - said that wooden tomb markers were at the graves of John and Frances Callaway Holder."


    Sometimes shown Capt. other times Col. John Holder was a large land Holder, the first Holder shown in Franklin Co. TN 1785 was named John, I have only this one record of any Holder in Franklin Co. until 1820 when 10 Families of Holder show up, one being John W. Holder, son of Col. John Holder. From the Census records they appear to lived as neighbors.

    There is three distinct lines of Holders living near each other, the decendents of Jesse, son of Thomas, from SC, John W Holder, son of Col John Holder, from Boonesboro, Clark Co. KY, and the line of John Holder who married Agnes Bledsoe in NC..

    The Family tree may look like this ( a lot of speculation in this tree) I believe Capt. John fits in a close relative of , Davis Holder b: 1714-1735, Thomas Holder, born cir 1728,who by 1757 lived in Bertie Co., NC, and William Holder of Orange Co., NC, born 1740

    Food, fire, flood
    Hall's history as distinctive as its specialties
    By Sharon Thompson
    HERALD-LEADER STAFF WRITER
    Fires, floods and the shooting of an owner haven't dampened the spirit of the Kentucky River's most famous watering hole. Since 1783, when Capt. John Holder established Holder's Station, a tavern at the site now known as Hall's on the River, the bend on the Kentucky, just a mile or so north of the original Fort Boonesborough, has forged a history that touches four centuries and is as colorful as the stained-glass wagon wheel that decorates the restaurant's tavern ceiling.

    Boonesborough was a thriving shipping port in the 18th century, and Holder was captain of the militia at Fort Boonesborough. He gained lasting fame for his rescue of Jemima Boone (Daniel's second daughter) and the Calloway girls (Elizabeth and Fanny) after they were captured by a band of Shawnee Indians in 1776. He married Fanny.

    ``Holder was an entrepreneur who ran mills off Lower Howards Creek,'' said Jerry Raisor, curator for Fort Boonesborough State Park's Kentucky River Museum. At that time, there was a boatyard at Lower Howards Creek, where Holder built flatboats. He owned most of the valley and is buried, with Fanny, atop the bluff where Hall's stands.

    The tavern stood near where Hall's is today. Long before it was named Hall's, the restaurant had its beginnings as Johnny Allman's.
