Union Recorder, Milledgeville, GA - Oct. 12, 1897, page 7
Mrs. Louise Calloway, widow of the late J. F. Calloway, died at her home in this county, Friday morning. She leaves several grown children to mourn her death. Her remains were buried Saturday morning at Black Spring cemetery.
Louiza Constanza was a daughter of Jesse Daniell and Mary Ann Tucker of Baldwin County, Georgia. Her birth is listed in the Family Record "from the Holy Bible printed in 1816" in her mother's 1878 Widow's Pension Application. Daniel R. Tucker, an officer of the court and Mary's brother, certified the record.
Louiza married Henry W. Posey on January 24, 1848, published in Milledgeville Newspaper Clippings, Vol VII, 1845-1848, pages 204-205 [1847 in Baldwin County records].
Henry was 30, and Louisa, 19. In the 1850 census they have two children, Fernanda (sic), 2, female, and Henry A. 1, male. They live next door to her brother Arthur Daniell and his wife Carrie. "Fernanda" is her son Fernando. Their third son, Bright Damascus "B. D." POSEY was born in 1853. Henry died before 27 March 1855 when Louiza's brother, Arthur Reese Daniell applied for administration of Henry's estate."Posey L C" is named on a List of Letters remaining in the Post Office at Milledgeville published in the Federal Union, January 4, 1859, p. 3.
On September 11, 1859, "L. C. Parey" married "T. F. Callaway" in Baldwin County, Georgia, an apparent misread of the handwritten "J. F. [John Francis] Callaway" and "L. C. [Louiza Constanza] Posey"? [Film Number: 415155, Collection: Georgia Marriages, 1808-1967]
On December 20, 1859, Louisa's brother, Arthur, requested guardianship of her son, Henry A. Posey.
Louisa and family have not been found in the 1860 or 1870 censuses; however, in 1870, Louisa's sons are in Baldwin County, Georgia: Fernando, 22, is married with a home of his own; Henry A. Posey, 20, is living in the home of her brother, Arthur Daniell; and Bright Damascus Posey, 16, lives in the home of Leonidas Newton Callaway, brother of her husband.
In 1880 Louisa and John Francis are in Baldwin County, Georgia and have six children: James R.; Lucinda, Augustus, Lena Rives, William A. and Mary. Louisa's unmarried sister, Anabella Daniel, 42, a seamstress, resides with them. Louisa's husband, "Frank" Callaway died 15 Dec 1893 in Baldwin County.
Two years later the Union Recorder, Jun. 4, 1895, on page 2, published: "GEORGIA, BALDWIN COUNTY. The appraisers appointed to appraise and set apart a 12 months' support for Mrs. Louisa Callaway, widow of J. F. Callaway, deceased, out of the estate of said deceased, having filed their return, in this office, Notice is hereby given to all persons concerned that said return will be passed upon the 1st day of July, 1895, at 10 o'clock a. m. at this office, this May the 29th, 1895."
Louisa Callaway died before January 4, 1904 when the Union Recorder published: "Application for Administration. GEORGIA, Baldwin County. Notice is hereby that B. D. Posey has applied to me for permanent letters of administration on the estate of Mrs. Louisa Callaway, deceased, late of said county. Notice is further given that said application will be heard at the regular February term 1904, of the Court of Ordinary of said county, held on the first Monday in February, 1904. Witness my hand and official signature this 4th day of January, 1904. Edward R. Hines, Ordinary, B.C." On June 14, 1904 the Union Recorder published: "Adminstrix Sale of Land. GEORGIA, BALDWIN COUNTY. By virtue of an order of the Court of Ordinary of said County, at the June term of said Court, will be sold at public outcry, on the first Tuesday in July, 1904, at the Court House in said County between the usual hours of sale, the following real estate situate in Baldwin County to wit: All that tract or parcel of land containing thirty-three acres more or less, bounded on the North by John King, on the East by E.
