Birth: Nov. 1, 1884
Death: Dec. 24, 1956

Albert W. Markway was a native of Cole County, being born in Osage Township November 1, 1884. He was the son of Fred and Katherine Schneiders Markway, the latter being born in Liberty Township. Fred Markway when a small child was brought from the Alsace-Lorraine region in Germany to America by his parents. His father died in New York, following which his mother brought the family of four sons and a daughter to Jefferson City. Here she later remarried.

In early manhood Fred Markway bought a farm in Osage Township. They became the parents of seven sons and four daughters; one son died in infancy and another at the age of twenty-four. Al Markway, the third son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Markway, remained on the home farm until after he was of age. For a number of years he combined farming and carpenter work. In 1911 he bought a general store at Wardsville and served that community both as a merchant and postmaster in 1930 when he was elected County Collector. For more than ten years prior to his election, Mr. Markway was shipping manager of the Cole County Co-operative Farmers' Association.

In Wardsville in 1912, Mr. Markway was married to Miss Marie Winkleman, daughter of Herman and Johanna Melies Winkleman, who came from Osage to Cole County in the late 1880s. Mr. Winkleman lived in Wardsville; his wife died in 1934. Mr. and Mrs Markway were the parents of eight children: Dorothy A. who was married in May 1937, to John Creff; Norbert H.; Maurice H. and Marcellus B., twins; Albert B. Jr.; Jerome; Mary K. and Louis. The family belonged to the Catholic Church and Mr. Markway was a member of the Knights of Columbus.
