Callaway Family Bibles and Books

The information on this page was sent to Debbie Anderson by Gene Callaway . When Gene was asked who the owners of the Bibles and books were this is what he had to say:

"The Bibles and books were owned by my Grandfather and Grandmother, Robert Andrew Callaway and Ada L. Brown Callaway of Pontotoc. They lived on Highway 41 about five miles southeast of Pontotoc near the Camp Ground Methodist Church. These bibles and books were handed down to my grandfather from my great grandfather, Cicero Marion Callaway from his father, Rev. James Render Callaway. Eventually, I inherited the bibles, books, letters, etc. The Callaway genealogy in these books goes back to Rev. James Render Callaway's father and mother (Joshua Callaway b. 1771 NC and Mary Render). In the little Church of England Bible dated 1769 there is a record of Mary Render's father and mother and her siblings."
