There is mentioned a Col.Richard Callaway in 1775 that had daughters captured in Ft Boonesborough in Ky. They were there defending the fort with Daniel Boone.You may want to look into Ft.Boonesborough Ky history for a link. Hope this was help!

Zachariah Callaway was married to Jane M. Early. They had a number of children in Lincoln County, Missouri. Among them, Zachariah "Butch" Callaway, Jr., born 25 Nov 1833, died 18 Feb 1916. Butch married my half GGGG Aunt, Sarah "Sallie" Catherine Gililland, born 27 Jan 1836, died 15 July 1917. There are many Callaway's buried in the Lincoln County cemeteries. The largest number can be found in the Sulphur Lick Cemetery, 8 miles north of Troy, MO. While I can not specifically identify your John Callaway, he looks to be a brother or cousin of the above 'Butch', given the proximity of age and birth info. The Callaway's, Ives', Zumwalt's, Howell's, Wommack's and Clare's are among the early settlers of the Lincoln County, MO area. If any of those names appear in your lineage, I recommend searching for the connections to learn more. Hope that's helpful.
