|Death: ||Dec., 1834|
Son of Thomas Callaway and Charity Cherry. He married Amy Stamps on 19 Aug 1800 in Ste Genevieve District of the Louisiana Territory and made his home in the area that is now Bollinger and Francois counties of Missouri.
By 1821, John and his family had moved to what is now Clark County, in territorial Missouri, three miles northwest of the present site of Arkadelphia. "His home, a commodious hewed log building, soon became the mecca for social and public spirits. During the year of his arrival he was appointed by the Governor of Missouri Territory to locate a 'seat of justice' in this section...Arkansas became a separate territory in 1819, and during the territorial legislature of 1825 John Calloway was a member from Clark County." (Source: Arkansas Gazette, 31 Jan 1915.)
The same article from the Arkansas Gazette states, "The old homestead has long since disappeared, the only trace left being the family graveyard, fallen into disuse since the Civil War, where this pioneer is buried."
