|Death: ||Jun. 12, 1864, USA|
Co B, 2nd Ark Cav, CSA. Bradley County Troop, organized at Mount Elba, Arkansas, February 22, 1862.
Isaac L Callaway appeared in the 1850 census in Bradley County, AR. He, his mother Mary, and younger sister Sarah J Callaway, were living in the home of Elisha L and Louisa McMurtrey. There was no "father" Callaway in that home, so I assume Mary, who was born about 1814 in North Carolina, was a widow.
The Confederate regiment in which Isaac L Callaway served saw frequent and bloody battles. Isaac was captured by Union troops at Ashley County, Arkansas on 24 Mar 1864.
He was initially "confined" in a POW camp on 4 Apr 1864, and subsequently transferred to Rock Island on 17 May 1864, where he died on 12 Jun 1864, either of chronic diarrhea (according to one record) or meningitis (according to another).
