Son of Lawrence Callaway and Sarah Eaves.

Arkansas 9 Infantry Regiment, Private, Company E; enlisted July 27, 1861 at Pine Bluff, Arkansas; per July 27 to November 1, 1861 Muster Roll remarks.

Died 26 October in Memphis at Southern Mothers Hospital of enteritis at age 22.

Levi and an older brother, F. M, left and enlisted together. Their 2 yr old baby brother, Edwin, never knew or remembered them. However, he never forgot the story of two older brothers going away and dying "at Vicksburg." It was my father, their nephew, Lawrence Tillman Callaway's dream of finding them. This was almost impossible during his lifetime without modern tools such as the internet and Ancestry.com. Through this website, census records with names and dates were found and then, finally, Confederate records with a burial place. F. M. hasn't been found yet, if indeed it was F.M. and not a middle brother named Madison, who never returned. I'm still researching and looking. We never forgot.
