Frances CALLAWAY's male line can be traced back four generations.   The earliest Callaway ancestor is Joseph CALLAWAY, SrClick here to go to the page for his descendants down to Frances's generation.

A couple of female ancestors have been identified, but their lines have not been traced yet.

In the chart below, a person's father has a number that is twice the child's number and a person's mother has a number that is one number higher than the child's father's number.  Thus the father of number 8 is number 16 and the mother of number 8 is number 17.
